Filth Synopsis
Scheming Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell), Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal. 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?

James McAvoy Buys Drugs And Photocopies His Wedding Tackle In New Red Band Filth Clips James McAvoy Buys Drugs And Photocopies His Wedding Tackle In New Red Band Filth Clips
If the first trailers for the film are to be believed, director Jon S. Baird's adaptation of Irvine Welsh's novel Filth promises to be one seriously disturbed and perverted piece of cinema - and I for one can't wait for it. James McAvoy looks to be in rare form stepping into the shoes of insanely corrupt police officer Bruce Robertson, and the movie as a whole looks as though it has hit a perfect note of manic craziness.

Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan, Imogen Poots And More Join Filth Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan, Imogen Poots And More Join Filth
I have been interested in this film from the get-go (you may know Welsh as the author who wrote Trainspotting), but these additions make the cast even better. Now in addition to sounding like a great bit of entertainment it now has the perfect actors to go with it. I get an awesome Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans vibe off of this film and if it is even half as good we will all be in for a treat.

James McAvoy, Jamie Bell And Alan Cumming Join The Cast Of Filth James McAvoy, Jamie Bell And Alan Cumming Join The Cast Of Filth
The lead character of Irvine Welsh's Filth sounds like a dream job for any actor. Bruce Robertson is a Scottish cop and misanthrope who is addicted to sex and drugs and would rather spend his days pranking his fellow police offers than doing his job. It's nothing you wouldn't expect from the author of Trainspotting, but what performer wouldn't want to try their hand at playing someone like that?
