Description

James McAvoy stars as a corrupt, sociopathic Edinburgh cop in director Jon S. Baird's fast-paced black comedy, adapted from the novel by Irvine Welsh. Bored with his duties as a Detective Sergeant in the Edinburgh police force, Bruce Robertson (McAvoy) gorges himself on a mixture of cocaine, alcohol, sexually abusive relationships and endless junk food, whilst plotting to get one over on his colleagues in his quest for a promotion. But although he nurses hopes of getting back together with his ex-wife Carole (Shauna MacDonald), Bruce soon finds his life spiralling out of control, when his drug addiction and unchecked psychological issues combine to test his grip on reality and push him over the edge.

Synopsis
James McAvoy stars in director Jon S. Baird's outrageous dark comedy based on the book by Irvine Welsh, and centered on the exploits of a debauched cop on a mission to crack a murder case, earn a big promotion, and win back his estranged wife. Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (McAvoy) is unlike any cop on the force. A pervert, a drug addict, and an irredeemable jerk, he thinks he's in control, even as his life spirals into oblivion. Now, in order to earn a major promotion, Detective Robertson will actually have to work, instead of hustling his way though each day in a haze of drugs and alcohol. Meanwhile, the harder he tries to get a grip, the further his future seems to slip out of reach. Jamie Bell, Jim Broadbent, Imogen Poots, Shirley Henderson, and Joanne Froggat co-star.

"James McAvoy goes whole hog in FILTH....Compared with this maniac, the rotten policeman of two BAD LIEUTENANT films is a garden-variety bad boy."
Stephen Holden (30 May 2014, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "As Scottish detective Bruce Robertson, James McAvoy is a volcano of perversions in full eruption..."
Peter Travers (29 May 2014, )
