A new very intense trailer for the movie Filth is out which is quite crazy if I am honest this is the craziest movie James McAvoy ever appeared on and you should watch this trailer if you want to know what Filth is all about!
As he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control. 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.
The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth?
Story of the filth: The Edinburgh police detective played by James McAvoy in “Filth” may seem like a bad lieutenant, but his problems run deeper than mere on-the-job debauchery.
In the story from a novel by Irvine Welsh, Bruce Robertson is a whoring, pill-popping, boozehound detective sergeant. He’s stalking a murderer while pining for his ex-wife and conspiring against fellow cops, playing an officious police official doesn’t even notice Bruce’s bloodshot life. The idea is not far-fetched and we do see such characters in real life but how to tell if you have a problem? Maybe it gets easier to point such characters out after watching this movie, which was beautifully executed as far as acting is concerned James McAvoy did a spectacular job.
There’s a lot going on in Bruce’s head. Some of this he tells us, and some of it we see in hallucinatory visions. McAvoy has become such a seasoned interpreter of off-kilter heroes that we don’t much mind the slide toward self-involved self-immolation.
There’s also a brief rest stop in humanity, thanks to Bruce’s affection for his doofus pal. Pity about Bruce’s dirty-mouthed overtures to the guy’s wife. Director Jon S. Baird lets Welsh’s language fill up the room.
