#626 w/ Danny Boyle: Top 5 Boyle Characters / FS Madness / Varda #2 - The Creatures

TRAINSPOTTING wasn't a huge hit in its day, but the 1996 film made an impression on a generation of young film fans thanks to its visual flair, memorable soundtrack and quartet of talented stars. That quartet - lead by Ewan McGregor - is making a surprise comeback 20 years later with the release of T2 TRAINSPOTTING. Also back: director Danny Boyle. This week on the show, Boyle sits down with Adam to talk about how he approached the sequel, and contributes his own Top 5 Danny Boyle Characters. (Spoiler: they're all women.) Plus, a surreal chat with Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington from Adult Swim's "On Cinema," Filmspotting Madness Round 2 results and Film Comment's Violet Lucca drops in for week 2 of the Agnes Varda Marathon.
