Hammerman Ikon

Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Director: Danny Boyle
Cast: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle

A terrific dark comedy about a group of friends, most of whom are heroin addicts. Danny Boyle's second feature moves from hilarious comedy to harrowing drama with admirable ease. The film is vividly directed and wonderfully acted, and its soundtrack is an instant classic. The story is set in Edinburgh and it's adapted from Irvine Welsh's novel.
