Filth, from Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh, took a lot longer to come to the screen, but was it worth the wait?
Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy) is going for promotion to Detective Inspector but there are several colleagues standing in his way, including relative newcomer Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell) and the sole female in the running, Amanda Drummond (Imogen Poots).
