Special Uptown Screening!
United Kingdom | 2013 | Jon S. Baird
James McAvoy, playing against type, is unforgettable as an amoral, sociopathic Scottish cop who will do anything (sex, drugs, back-stabbing, etc.) to win a departmental promotion. This lurid new adaptation of a novel by Irvine West (Trainspotting) co-stars Jamie Bell, Eddie Marsan, Imogen Poots, and Jim Broadbent. "There’s in-yer-face cinema, and then there’s in-yer-face, down-yer-throat and throw-it-back-up-all-over-the-pavement cinema...You’ll be scraping this film out from under your fingernails for weeks." -Time Out London. "A hugely entertaining breath of foul air fueled by McAvoy's impressively ugly star performance." -The Hollywood Reporter.
