Filth (2013)

Magnolia Pictures
Directed by Jon S. Baird
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

Scottish police officer James McAvoy, going through a messy breakup, succumbs to his drug, alcohol and sex addictions. At the same time, he is trying to earn a promotion by leading a murder investigation. He can barely separate reality from hallucinations, much less perform his job. A colleague tries to step in, as does a woman he recently met, but his demons prove too much to overcome. Repulsively explicit film, aptly titled, but hiding underneath all of the slime is an emotional story, if you can shovel away enough to find it.
