Barbara Seriously? I found this painful just to finish!

Scott Gilbert Different strokes. I loved Welsh's previous work, and did find this to be a wild swing away from the previous stuff, but I also greatly enjoyed observing his trajectory and his reflection of the Ecstasy-drenched times (1998) both in this and in PORNO. Bet you didn't like The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, either.

Barbara Emm, not familiar with The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans...
I did like the book Trainspotting a lot, and I think I read something else of his--or at least I watched the play Marabou Stork Nightmares, which was pretty good. But as you say, different strokes.

Richard I'll check it out..

Barbara Hey Scott,
Came across The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. I really enjoyed it. Best I've seen Nicholas Cage in quite a while. I guess I like iguanas more than tapeworms...
