  • Ecstasy is to ecstasy what Trainspotting was to heroin. Different times, different drugs, but the Scotland-set story of addiction and redemption is pretty much the same.

  • One gets the feeling this director doesn't think his target audience is all that smart.

  • The film is supposed to be a transformational romance going from the love of ecstasy to the ecstasy of love but the two leads can't manage it any more than the director.

  • Not so much chemical romance as serious downer, it all seems so old.

  • The low budget is not enough to excuse the ineptitude on show. Avoid.

    Apr 19, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • A drug-fueled landscape impacted by the Thatcher years, characterized by Scottish working class misery and massive unemployment feeding the underground drug economy. And reflecting Welsh's own conflicting personas as cult figure, pariah and antichrist.
