Opening Scene from Trainspotting (1996)

2 09 2009


Mark “Rent-boy” Renton: Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life. But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose something else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got heroin?

Watch this scene!

Fantástica cena!
Um filme do inglês John Hodge que começa com um poema da autoria do mesmo. A música de fundo: Iggy Pop com Lust for Life (e poderia ser outra??).
Para mim, esta abertura e a de Cães de Aluguel (Resevoir Dogs, Tarantino) estão no topo.

Ale, passei aqui para agradecer o link que colocaste para o 🙂
Espero que tenha colocado por ter gostado do site, assim como espero que continue gostando enquanto tentamos melhorá-lo.
