Oh good lord, what is Professor X up to? Sleeping with prostitutes, jacking off in bathrooms, selling drugs, getting cheap sex, and generally doing very bad things to people and himself, as it turns out. At least, in his new movie “Filth”, based on the book by Irvine Welsh (of “Trainspotting” fame) and directed by Jon S. Baird (“Cass”). But surely he’s got some redeeming values, right? It’s not all “Bad Lieutenant”, right? Hmm, maybe, I dunno, I’ve never read the book, but the guy sure seems like a real menace here. But hey, maybe Imogen Poots can redeem him?
Get your fill of McAvoy doing some very bad deeds indeed in the new International Red Band trailer for the film below. The last scene alone is worth the price of admission. “Whaaaaat?” indeed, little lady.
A bipolar, bigoted junkie cop manipulates and hallucinates his way through the festive season in a bid to secure promotion and win back his wife and daughter.
Starring James McAvoy, Jamie Bell, Jim Broadbent, Imogen Poots, and Eddie Marsan.
The filthiness begins in the UK on September 27, 2013 and you’re probably looking at a limited release Stateside. This doesn’t exactly ring of wide release over here, alas.
