Irvine Welsh has created some of the most thought provoking novels of the past 25 years, so much so that many pieces of his literary collection have been adapted in some form over the years. From the Danny Boyle's 1996 classic film Trainspotting to Paul McGuigan's film, The Acid House, each director has lent their unique talents to the telling of Welsh's cult classics. While a series of adaptation failures plagued Welsh in the late 1990's thru the early 2000's, there has always been a vibe around the announcement of another project. This year brings director Jon S. Baird's take on the mind and words of Irvine Welsh, the 1998 novel Filth, and I'm confident in saying it is the best adaptation of an Irvine Welsh novel since Trainspotting.
