So far, the subjects of Old v. Gold have been genre films or old films aimed at child or teen viewers, a trend which leads us naturally to … Trainspotting. You see, someone remembered Danny Boyle’s acclaimed tale of heroin-dependent and -adjacent young men in Scotland as a kind of, I guess, funny romp? So here we are (in a session recorded a couple of weeks ago, before certain grim recent Hollywood news), to find out what we — and our peanut gallery of one — get from this energetic and artistic 1996 movie in 2014. (A hint: depressed.)
