Trainspotting Analysis

Trainspotting adapted from the Irvine Welsh novel written by John Hedge, producer Andrew Macdonald and director Danny Boyle, which gives us unforgettable characters and moments. Ewan McGregor plays Renton, a heroin-dependent man who can not decide whether or not to clean up or lose his lost friends in Edinburgh's working class and later in London. The film was made in 1996.

Train running in reality means a dark line mark or band that is left behind in the veins after heroin capture. The first thing is that heroin consumers are located along their arms and face up and down the main vein. "Station to Station", this is called. In addicts, everything is narrowed down to the drug consumption goal. "Trainspotters" is such that they have occupied the number of trains.

Five major players in the movie are men and a life-threatening drug habit. Trainspotting is divided into four types of films: drama, comedy, crime and drug culture. "Trainspotting" is a drama as it is a serious story about the drug habit and many scenes that showed the real life of the drug addicts and the graphic images of heroin injection. On the other hand, it may be a comedy, especially when Spud goes for a quick interview and other funny moments that alleviate the seriousness of the movie. This can be considered a black humor. Certainly, Trainspotting may also be in the genre of crime and narcotics because of the story and the characters. This movie gives a very lively and realistic picture of a heroin-dependent daily routine. "Choose From Life …" The movie's most famous quotation means a lot. Those in Trainspotting are those who need to understand life's choice; are those who have been writing this sentence and who are these people doing a less-ordinary life? Scotland addicts, living people who are in sync to get what they need. Three of them are heroin's addiction, another passivity and last aggression. They are a crazy quintet who is licking things that might be something.

Initially, when we show off to our humble narrated Renton (McGregor). We can see that there is no way to go, the theft of CDs from a store, hoping to make ready for the next hit. The home of a home is a drug dealer's home (senior mother) where regular needles, spoon, lighter, and heroin are given by his best friend Sick Boy (Miller) and Spud (Bremner). They are so disconcerting as he is, although Spud is unable to addiction, while Sick Boy is there to compare metaphorical dimensions.

Drug addiction movies are certainly not new, but this movie looks all the first movie that deals with the subject. Train transport is brave and often cheerful; dark, smart and stubborn. This is more than one of the best "drug movies" ever made; it's arguably the best movie to come out of the UK

Ewan McGregor plays the lead; Mark Renton. Introduces Trainspotting with a very energetic scene, accompanied by Iggy Pop "Lust for Life," together with Renton's sarcastic narrative, which rejects our weak, mechanical existence alongside heroin delights. Iggy pop Renton hero. She has another poster in her room. When you start playing, you will notice that your heroin habit takes a long time because you do not recognize the new songs in the club. Diane notices this, and Renton begins to realize that heroin has so much taken away from her life.

"People are associated with misery, despair, and death, which must not be overlooked, but what they forget about joy would otherwise not be." There is no doubt that society and the material satisfaction offered by it make doubts. Later, he compared the heroine: "imagine the best orgasm you've ever had and we've grown a thousand and we are not." In a few minutes, however, he decides to quit heroin. Viewers can come to the conclusion that it is time to move on in life, but it can not live without heroin, as we see various unsuccessful experiments on the film when it is abandoning its habits

. Renton has a serious drug habit, unemployment has to keep stealing and stealing. When it was in methadone, it was "her last hit" and led to overdose. It is simply an effort to avoid it being met. In fact, this is a definite attitude that is likely to explain that heroin is over Renton. He says, "We'll give you vitamin C if you make it illegal."

Despite having successfully kicked out of heroin dependency and started a new life in London, its old circle of friends is not easy to get rid of, and Renton eventually engages in drug trafficking and sells 4 pounds of heroin to its so-called friends. By the end of the film, he betrays the rest of his money to go away. This shows the viewers that they have chosen to "choose life", "just like us", which is a dubious goal; whose qualities are challenged by the film all the time

Renton is dreamy, sharp, restless and calm, apparently all at one time, and never knows where he is with, since he never knows where he is with you. It is a pointer to a rootless personality – yet magnetic. Johnny Lee Miller plays the Sick Boy, who is portrayed as a beautiful boy who speaks stupidly and scatters his companions of Sean Connery. She is the James Bond wannabe woman who is very intelligent. The sick boy is the one who is less affected by the heroin habit. In fact, when Renton tries to get out of the heroine, the sick boy does the same, just to fight him. In the Trainspotting movie The sick boy is the one who trivialises the heroine and seems to have no problem with his addiction compared to the others [19659002] "The film deals only with the question of how real or just social camouflage is." The behavior of the sick boy in the last part of the film shows how the death of the baby affected him and made him even more criminal. They initiate drug dealing, pimping, and start each round. Renton claims that when Sick Boy's child passed away, something inside Sickboy had died and never came back.

In the movie, Renton later flees to London to start a new life while Sick Boy and his other friends are still in the Scottish capital. When he unexpectedly visits Renton, he immediately sells Renton's television and offers Saleon's passport. Sickboy is so attached to his new criminal career that he never thought of Renton's emotions. "He is obsessed with developing useful links for the amazing" big deal "and grabbing his pie with his finger." For all kinds of occasions, it will be a manipulative pimp and drug user, and will not hesitate to exploit and manipulate anyone with the goal of self-realization. The torturing boy is as hard as ever.

Kevin McKidd plays Tommy vigorously in opposition to other protagonists. He is portrayed as athletic, looking at the countryside, looking at weightlifting and football, not drugs. As the film progresses, a dramatic change occurs in Tommy and changes the "worst" knot to "quick and deadly".

Tommy's girlfriend, Lizzie's relationship does not seem to work well. Lack of homemade pornography as Renton borrowed Lizzie's last straw and terminated the relationship. When her efforts to improve her relationship fail, Tommy falls into depression and is looking for drugs. Sadly (black comedy), Lizzie, the person Tommy likes to cause her death. With increased use of heroin, Tommy is in contact with HIV. Initially, his clean and orderly home will be dirty. His ultimate attempt to regain Lizzie, he sees that he will have a kitten she refuses. Tommy was found dead because of the infection of the kitten's stool. It has a social connotation since HIV and AIDS have grown and flourished in 1996 due to the lack of heroin.

Clarke believes that this character's story helps to create an ethical perspective in this movie. Drug abuse can be a victim to anyone, even if young people are "good". Clark claims that Tommy is released filmically, but uses amphetamines in Irvine Welsh's novel. This can be called to the fact that some people prefer to watch the movie than reading a book, so the message must be harder to pass. The same can be said behind Tommy's drug use. As the film continues, Tommy's health exacerbates the audience. Finally, without Lizzie, Tommy "chose not to choose life", but heroin and death.

Begbie is better off than the others. He sees this clearly when he talks to his friends after Renton flees away from jail and tries to appear before Renton's parents and claims he never "poisoned" the chemicals. Alcohol can also be regarded as a dangerous chemical to the body, but Begbie does not see it as such. Begbie is a commanding attitude when he is with his friends, like the final pub, when he orders Renton to take a cigar or during his hallucination scenes and during Renton's stay in England.

Spud, the "lovable, childish loser," as Clarke writes, Ewen Bremner plays. Clarke thinks Spud's life has been misguided, including the choice of drugs, which is inappropriate for his weak character. They did not have sex with Gail for the six-week relationship. On the night she wanted to have sex with her, Spud was too drunk to do anything. The next morning he wakes up in Gail's bed and pollutes the sheets. Spud's gut contents Gail and her parents are laughing at breakfast.

Clarke compares the other scenes of the film. Spud was jailed for towing, while Renton proved to be virtually non-slip. Likewise, Diane sees Spud lying beneath the sidewalk under the letter scene while the others are clearly legible. Despite the various threats, Spud is the only member he is injured by Begbie. Nevertheless, it is inevitable that everyone loves Spud. Audience sympathizes with it. Renton wants to be imprisoned instead of his friend. Finally, he only leaves Spud for the money because he is sorry for him.

Kelly Macdonald plays starring as Diane is young but wise after his real years. This is especially evident when dealing with men. At first, Renton sees a nightclub who rejects a man's career, both drinking and leaving, while Renton approaches the club and responds with a faint chat conversation to a cold cruel speech that completely disrupts him. However, when he leaves the Renton door to enter, it becomes clear that the negative answer may be a pure means of sexual power like him.

Later in the movie, Renton's passionate night in his bedroom, Renton and the audience entertain and feel embarrassed that Diane has become a silver uniform for her school uniform. The audience understands the position Renton has found. You have to escape from this situation or you have to face the consequences as a minor. But Diane is again in this position against Renton, because if he tells the police, Renton gets into jail. You know the law and blackmail her to meet her. It seems that Diane knew more about modern culture. In fact, he emphasizes that heroin recording, Iggy Pop's listening and the fact that Renton and the protagonists are still in Edinburgh are outdated, "the changing time, the music changes, and even the drugs change."

Men are also seen in other women in the movie. In a nutshell, Trainspotting's men are ready to throw away their usual safe facade and endanger their sexuality. Women in Trainspotting are delighted with coercion. For example, Spud's girlfriend refused to sleep with Spud during her six-week relationship, but later admitted to Lizzy that she wanted to sleep with Spudal, but she liked watching her. Lizzy is also considered to be holding ridicule and sexual control for his people. He does not deny himself that he can have sex with Tommy, because that is the only joy he receives from him. However later in the movie when Thomas did not find the extremely intimate private video, Lizzy was ashamed. He was so angry that he had left him.

Alison, Susan Vidler plays, a typical drug-seeking mother. He is self-centered, completely neglects his daughter. When the infant lies dead in the crib, Renton says he does not know who his father is. This promotes the conviction that he is immature and lacks the moral and sexual relationship with all male members of the group. One of the initial reactions to her daughter's discovery is heroin capture.

The heroine is the group's heroin provider. Although it can be seen that the drug is being sold to his friends, he can never be exploited. Your uncle can not be considered as completely friendly because he is ultimately looking for money for medicines. However, when Renton overdoses, the mother calls up a superior taxi and gives him money. This can be interpreted as a friendly gesture, but it also helps Renton not to get in trouble. The mother knows the different characters in the group. This may indicate that everyone is using drugs for a while, so they are more likely to live with the substance above their substance. During the movie, characters are considered to be hunting support to maintain their drug habits. The need for theft was initiated by the Mother Church, which required hard cash.

Renton's bond with friends is just the common guessing goal of the next hit. If you are not dealing with drugs, you will have to face reality, that is, maintaining relationships, meeting girls, and everyday responsibilities. The film shows what appears to be a unified group. However, Begbie is afraid of violence and drinking, and of older people. Sickboy, Renton, Spud, and later in the movie, Tommy has all the addiction to heroin, so finding a way to solve their problems is a hit. Begbie solves drinking and fighting. The group shares the stolen money and bends into groups. When they go to the club, they get together. Still, Renton finally calls other groups to their so-called friends.

The relationship between Renton and Spud among the characters is among the best. As mentioned earlier, Renton can not help Spud. Renton saw his friend send ideas to Spud's job interview. Despite being found to be incorrect, Renton Spud offers speed to easily handle it. When both are held in captivity, Renton wants to be sentenced to jail instead of Spud. In the same scene, he admits that he feels himself lonely, though surrounded by family and friends. At the end of the film, Renton regretted Spud, for never injuring anyone or saying bad words about his friends. So he just left Spud for the money. This relationship is further supported by the fact that Renton asks Spud if they will lose money and go. Renton grabbed the bag more easily and left it before Spud responded in any way.

Renton has a good relationship with Tommy and he thinks he is one of his best friends. Tommy believes Renton has a friend to discuss her problems with Lizzie. Renton regretted Tommy when he found that her HIV positive friend lived in a terrible, dirty flat. He tried to improve by giving Tommy money to pay the rent. This relationship is somewhat ironic because Tommy's failure was caused by Renton when he stole Tommy and Lizzy's video. From the beginning, Renton and Sickboy's relationships do not look strong. Renton's a bit jealous of Sickboy. This is the impression that the Sickboy can easily overcome the heroine because Renton is trying to quit. Sickboy has no problem with girls in a disco, while Renton did not like the women around him except Diane. By the end of the film, Renton claims Sickboy would betray him if he first thinks. Sickboy himself admits this fact. Spud and Tommy are alone in talking about sex alone because they both have a girlfriend. Their girlfriends also seem to be trusting each other. Comfortable sharing problems: Spud – no sex is a six-week relationship; Tommy – forgetting Lizzy's birthday. Iggy Pop had a ticket on the same night. When Tommy dies, Spud sings a song. This little act shows Spud's interest in Tommy. Begbie's relationship with Renton is somewhat controversial. Begbie trusts Renton to be confident when she first went transsexual without knowing it. Nevertheless, Begbie is threatening Renton several times, his aggressive nature being taken over by all emotions. Renton prefer Begbie, especially because he is afraid of him. Renton tries not to oppose Begby for "psycho" At the end of the movie, Renton states that he is not interested in telling Begby.

The relationship between Mother and Renton can not be recognized as friendship, because Mother's business is funded by Renton and other members of the group. Yet their relationship is deeper than the usual merchant-user relationship. Your dad can easily throw Renton somewhere, instead of calling a taxi to take him to a hospital. However, there are those who question the gesture of friendship. The audience could have believed that paying a taxi was a small price to pay if compared to all the trouble the abbey would find if they found a dead body.

Train taking can be described as broadcasting an anti-drug message instead of "character studies" This film introduces several views of viewers for the film as a whole. During the film young characters are often seen to cook heroin and inject afterwards but it also depicts pain, narcotics, melancholy, and unhappiness, and we can say that this film is a warning about the fears and dangers of drug addiction, especially heroin addiction.

Trainspotting drug -normal message mainly lies in the ability of the film to illustrate and address the reasons why young people are attracted to drugs and the power and success of the film to show negative public outcomes and the consequences of this type of dependence clearly mediate this anti-drug -message. The film depicts these negative results and continuously damages the film as a whole. The film and its characters come to the world of neglect, dying babies, AIDS, anxiety, depression, boredom and hopelessness. In addition, the other drug message from this film "goes beyond the reasons and consequences that explain that serious drug abuse goes far beyond its cause and consequences." Renton asks, "Who needs your causes when you get heroin? "

Trainspotting deals with the subculture of the seventh -month heroin when" Pakistan's smack stifled the United Kingdom market, and for thousands of ordinary people it is cheaper than forgetting unemployment because of unemployment. "It analyzes youth subcultures ("state-sanctioned chemicals such as alcohol or tranquilizers") and metaphorical (1979): Hebdige (1979: 100) argues that "style is intentional communication." Barthes (ND) cited in Hebdige (1979: 100) distinguishes between n "subcultural" and "normal styles." Subcultural style collects clothes, music, jargon and so on, and has almost the right connection with the "traditional b formulas (normal suits, ties, double sets, etc.) ". Individuals wear clothes with preference, taste, cost, etc. It is selected according to its limitation. Such choices include widespread messages that are provided by a number of "pooling" sets, such as status, self-image, and class. Subcultural styles differentiate themselves from normal styles, as they are "made and show their own code" and are constantly depicted throughout the film (Hebdige, 1979: 100-101). They portray the message that they do not belong to "normal culture" but belong to their own class or subculture through dresses of the actors of the films; "I'm talking about my dress" (Eco, 1973, as Hebdige, 1979: 100).

Tracking is also a dark humor, but the world of junkies is quite valuable to the movie. It's a movie about people who do not want to belong. Trainspotting is not the first movie about heroin, but the first is a "slap on our face, the whimsical reality of life on the tip of the needle and the addicts are a donkey-happy existence."

Trainspotting's sound was extremely successful in international charts after the release of the film in the 1990s. The music score is mostly composed of popular compositions. Sometimes the movie takes on the appearance of a music video and the conversation is kept at a minimum. The scene and song are full and enough for the viewer to understand. It is used several times and used for various purposes.

We're going to move through the first ten minutes of the movie; like antihammas Renton and Spud race in the street and a sound begins: "Choose a life, choose a job Choose a career Choose a family Choose a fucking big TV, choose washing machines, cars, electric shades, good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance … …

This litany goes on and we'll see Renton, who lies in the heroin stun, and the voice is over:

I do not want to choose a thing, that I did not choose life: I chose something else and the reasons? There is no reason why there is a heroine? "

Iggy Pop" Lifestyle ". The "Desire for Life", in which the lyrics heavily subordinated to Renton's voice after the striking opening, some bars, so much so that the only lyrical fragment that can be heard is the opening line. "Here comes Johnny Yen …" and chorus refrain ("I Want to Live"). By the way, Iggy Pop is famous for past heroin abuse and a lot in the movie. The two films finally mark each other – Mark Renton is the central feature of the film, and Iggy Pop is the most significant artist on the soundtrack album. Iggy Pop's music also helps to feel the rebellion. The Iggy Pop poster can be observed in one of the arena

Renton's new musical knowledge is limited and can be seen when it comes to clubs. Renton restless; it was not long and was not related to the current music scene. Here is Born Slippy and "What We Dreamed" songs. All this shows how Renton is packed in the heroin habit that he completely affected. The only record Renton recognizes is a song originally called Blondie "Atomic" (song 80). The emphasis is on Trainspotting itself, though the musical character of the score gradually shifts from the Iggy Pop proto-punk to the latest dance music waves

Part of the music was designed for the film, such as Pulp's "Mile End", to which Mark Renton London move. Flat: […] It feels like someone died

The living room was full of flies.

The cupboard was closed

There is nothing in the bathroom either … "

The other song created by the Leftfield group was ironically called" The Final Hit, "under the Renton film, there are so many so-called final hits, primarily a musical instrument, which contrasts with a dark, almost stupendous rhythm: the contrast between harmony and rhythm reveals the mixed feelings of Mark Renton at this point of the film – desperately wanting to give up heroin, but feeling

The music used throughout the film is full of irony, Renton hallucinates the disappearance of the "dirty toilet in Scotland", we hear a soft room called Brian Eno's music called "Deep Blue Day", the movie reaches a surreal twist, and enter the world of soft tones and images, Renton swims on the blue ocean and this is completely in opposition to Renton's reality, finding hi while uncontrolled

All the songs of Trainspotting's sound were significant to those who saw and associated the songs to the movie; heroin. At this moment, the term "heroin chic" had a great impact on the world. Heroin elegance was a trend of the 1990s, characterized by "thin, sickening junkies," and "heroin elegance" on runways, the empty expression, the waxy facial expression, the dark circles under the eyes, the thin faces, excessive hairiness and greasy hair. "in the popular magazine and in the fashion circles," elegant "looks and promoted, this fragile, slim, and drug-addicted appearance is very popular in the fashion world, in fact it was the foundation of the advertising campaign of Calvin Klein in 1997. The heroine's elegant fashion protested debate and anti-drug groups. "Fashion designers, such as Kate Moss and James King, and films like Trainspotting blamed the heroine's elegant look and lifestyle."

Former US President Bill Clinton condemned heroin's chic appearance and "heroin chic" to the use of drugs is "glamorous" and "sexy." He said, "There is no need to charm the addictions to sell clothes." As he saw, heroin glorification "is not creative but destructive: it is not beautiful and ugly, it's about life and death, and glorifying death is not good for any society "It's no surprise that most of the mainstream media and newspapers were shocked by the obvious glorification of heroin use in the Trainspotting movie. The tyrants were given to just heroes who chose freedom over the tyranny of the consumer society. Suddenly, all the values ​​were reversed as viewers and readers were asked to identify and empower low-life people who do not think that television and heroin are being rotated during the daytime. Trainspotting helped a new morbid astonish about drug heroin by showing huge role models in the movie. For years, heroin has been very popular among young celebrities, such as the Phoenix River (died in 1992 due to overdose).

Trainspotting was a great success and seen more than just a movie. A few years after the release of the film, the heroin addiction film is among the best films that depict the cultural images of heroin subcultures. He received the Trainspotting cult. The film treats the problems of heroin addiction on the one hand from the anti-drug perspective. Trainspotting frightens a moment, dreads and humiliates and laughs at the next. Trainspotting does not have the truth, but simply follows this group from everyday.

The main purpose of the film is drugs. In the 1990s, new music and drug waves began to rise. Heroine was regarded as old-fashioned (Iggy Pop). The Trainspotting heroin film was a highlight. Sick Boy and Renton became ghosts like rebellious teenagers who tried to try drugs, disillusioned, and independent of society. Trainspotting became the Bible of the new generation of heroin. They have a music and idols to imitate. On the other hand, we could look at the movie as it is; an ironic and cynical blink in the life of the heroin addicts group. A film tragédiája nyilvánvaló a néző számára, de mint az egyénnek az értelmezéséig.
