Danny Boyle’s adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s novel about Edinburgh’s squalid heroin scene in the 1980s is an audacious black comedy, shot through with verve and vehemence. Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle head an exceptional cast in one of the defining movies of the 90s.

This satisfying, ingenious mystery thriller finds unexpected new notes in some old tunes. Aki (Ayako Fujitani) is a conflicted Japanese crime novelist who flees a press junket in Tokyo and hops a flight to San Francisco. She meets a handsome young man in the hotel bar, but his susden disappearance propels her into a noir-tinged murder mystery worthy of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett.

During the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, Canadian-born cinematographer Alex Phillips (Ontario, 1900) and Spanish-born film director Luis Buñuel (Aragón, 1900), became symbols for Mexican cinema. They worked together twice: on Ascent to Heaven (1952, screens at 6.30pm) and Robinson Crusoe (1954, 8.15pm).
