Call me debauched, immoral and twisted, but I enjoyed every last nanosecond of Filth. Irvine Welsh has said that McAvoy's performance is better than De Niro's in Taxi Driver. Now I have thought about it, I can see how good it really was. The protagonist is a corrupt Scottish policeman Bruce Robertson, who obsessed with sex and cocaine. Because he showed the ability to portray more than one character in a film; someone who is both fragile and unstable. Scheming Bruce Robertson James McAvoy , a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. His past is slowly catching up with him, and a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity.
As he turns his associates against each other by taking their spouses and uncovering their privileged insights, Bruce begins to lose himself in a web of double dealing that he can not control anymore. And what's not to love about that? Everything about the character that he portrayed was realistic, and I could feel the emotion coming out of him throughout his descent into madness. It's a movie for those who don't get offended very easily. It was the craziest film i have seen in a long time. The supporting cast provides a colourful blend of caricatures. Baird Cast: James McAvoy, Imogen Poots, Jamie Bell, Eddie Marsan, Jim Broadbent, Joanne Froggatt, Shirley Henderson, Iain De Caestecker, Emun Elliott, Pollyanna McIntosh Runtime: 97 min Language: English Filth movie download: Quality: 1080p, 1.
Jamie Bell, Eddie Marsan and Imogen Poots all make an impact in the few moments when McAvoy isn't dominating the screen. My companion for the screening, Bag, made two comments that stood out post-screening. We are glad to inform you that all your inquiries and comments are considered by us to you within 1 day. Bruce is one of the most complex characters I've ever seen in a movie. I want to make it clear to people going into this movie what they should expect. Before the film's release, I wasn't convinced by the casting of McAvoy, but after watching it I can safely say he's transformative to capture such bipolar savagery and the fear in a single facial expression is the sign of a special performance.
We know how to get it. I liked this title so much I would actually fit it into my top 10 of all time. And if it weren't for seeing that i probably wouldn't have been half as eager to see this. If the trailer excited you, take the plunge. Deep in the storyline though, was an utterly captivating, yet tragic story of a man loosing his mind to drugs, mental illness and grief.
Like this promotion he's going for. Throw in his manipulation of fellow freemason Bladesey Eddie Marsan , his sultry wife, Carole Shauna MacDonald and his hallucinatory sessions with Doctor Rossi Jim Broadbent and you have one monumentally screwed up anti-hero. Without spoiling much for anyone, it really is filth. Some may be easily offended, and if you are usually like that, i would avoid seeing the film. There is no other way that I could describe this film. There are no restrictions with this film.
Meanwhile, his mind is deteriorating, and he's haunted by flashbacks, waking dreams, and humanoid livestock. With a promotion in the balance, Bruce is up against several colleagues and sets about turning one against the other, unsettling them with salacious gossip and blatant lies to ensure he beats them to the post. Pretty much everything offensive that you could think of is in this film. It is polluted with prejudice. Addiction means there's never enough and in his case drugs or sex.
Inside the psyche of a sex and medication someone who is addicted policeman. We are less willing to forgive but, like the car crash up ahead that has caused all the drivers in front to rubber-neck, well, just one long look as we pass can't hurt, can it? We know what we want. The film is fairly faithful to the source, and the changes including some understandably blunted edges are down to the different artform. Baird's film is more manic. In many ways it was this that made the film all the more shocking, but brilliant at the same time. There is brutality, sexism, racism, oppression, homophobia. James McAvoy is a revelation as Detective Bruce Robertson; i really didn't see all the fuss with him.
Yes, there are elements of Welsh's novel that are missing no police dogs here from Filth but there always have to be excisions for film adaptations and there's no reason, in this instance at least, to mark down a film for that. I had such high hopes for this movie after seeing some of the most intriguing trailers I've ever seen. Sometimes Baird's shifts between the schizoid black comedy of Robertson's outbursts and his introspective guilt about his past are so sudden and sentimental that their capacity to convince is lost in the lack of transition. The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth? James McAvoy gave a perfect performance in the lead role. Enrolled to tackle a ruthless murder and debilitated by the goals of his partners, including Ray Lennox Jamie Bell , Bruce starts guaranteeing their destroy, directly under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal. I came out of the theatre speechless, I had no idea what to make of it or think.
