Filth starts off perfectly

5 second plot: Bruce is a cop in Scotland. He drinks, does drugs, lies, manipulates,... he's a real asshole. Still, he's got everything reasonably under control and everyone still seems to believe (in) him. But his fucked up lifestyle is getting to him. It doesn't take long before his entire life totally falls apart.

5 second review: This movie starts off brilliantly. For a moment, I seriously thought I was watching the next Trainspotting. But then, just like the main character, the movie spirals totally out of control. And all of a sudden all the fun is gone. That was probably the whole idea, but it didn't work for me.

IMDb score: 7,3/10
Our score: 6/10
