Genre : Drama

Trainspotting the 1996 Danny Boyle’s drama takes you in the life of those who have ventured into the darker corners of addiction know that one of its few consolations, once the fun has worn off, is the camaraderie with fellow practitioners. Substance abuse sets the user apart from the daily lives of ordinary people. No matter how well the addict may seem to be functioning, there is always the secret agenda, the knowledge that the drug of choice is more important than the mundane business at hand, such as friends, family, jobs, play and sex.

“Waiting for the Miracle” by Leonard Cohen

– “Sweet Jane” by Cowboy Junkies

from NATURAL BORN KILLERS directed by Oliver Stone

Genre: Thriller- Crime- Drama

Oliver Stone’s “Natural Born Killers” might have played even more like a demented nightmare if it hadn’t been for the O.J. Simpson case. Maybe Stone meant his movie as a warning about where we were headed, but because of Simpson it plays as an indictment of the way we are now. We are becoming a society more interested in crime and scandal than in anything else – more than in politics and the arts, certainly, and maybe even more than sports, unless crime is our new national sport.
