It's been 21 years since Trainspotting, the movie, and Danny Boyle has brought back the gang for T2 Trainspotting, which couldn't afford a colon in its title, apparently. I confess I'm not the biggest fan of the original, so I was curious how I'd respond to this sequel. I walked away from T2 impressed with its thematic ambition. Which is something, I suppose. My review is live at The New Republic.
