Really great. Think you get a lot more out of it if you're Scottish or at least familiar with the language and slang etc. Some of the insults are hilarious. Not read Welsh's book but the dialogue shines, effortlessly moving from angry arguments to total meltdowns, sometimes in the same conversation. McAvoy is utterly fantastic in it, he really should win something for this. There's a scene in which he's crying, dirty talking and wanking all at once for gods sake! (which sounds crass but must be incredibly hard to act)
