The caustic Irvine Welsh adaptation stars a sensational James McAvoy, boldly cast against type as Bruce, the cop so corrupt he could redefine the word. Bruce may be a policeman but he holds none of their values at heart; he cuts corners, abuses drugs, steals wives, and, most perilously fails to stay on stable ground. Struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder, Bruce tries to scheme his way to a promotion – but how far can he go if his demons get the best of him?
Filmmaker Jon S. Baird adapts Irvine Welsh’s novel with dark, biting humour and an abundance of colourful imagery. With echoes of A Clockwork Orange and Trainspotting, Filth is a kinetic exploration into the mind of a man who cheats, lies, and snorts his way through his life. Baird delivers a wild rollercoaster ride that will leave you, like Bruce, scraping to hang on
