Summary
Film centers on Mark Renton, "an on-off junkie who acts as a funnel to the surreal world of his four 'friends.' Like Alex in Kubrick's 1971 pic [Clockwork orange] (to which there's a brief homage), Mark regales the audience with his anti-middle-class values and idiosyncratic philosophy of life, finally achieving a liberation that's more a temporary escape than a real shift in perception."--Variety review, February 12, 1996
