I read the book Filth by Irvine Welsh a year ago, and boy did it leave an impression singed into my brain. I felt I needed to take a hot shower after reading that book and I loved it for creating such a feeling of revulsion towards it central character. The book is as crusty as pus.
When I heard it was being made into a film I thought: how will that work? Who is going to play vile Bruce Robertson? When I heard that James McAvoy was taking the role, I could not believe it. Lovely James from Atonement, X-men: First Class etc? No!!!
But, yes, and boy does he look awesome in the role. Hang onto your seats, here comes Filth....
