Shallow Grave

Money is the root of all evil.

That’s rarely truer than in movies, where the lure of illicit cash often wrecks lives.

One of the best “big bucks equals big headaches” films is this thriller, which launched Danny Boyle and Ewan McGregor, right before the duo went big-time with Trainspotting.

The future Obi-Wan is a brash journalist, one of three flat-mates facing hard choices after another lodger overdoses, leaving a suitcase crammed with cash.

A simple call to the cops would bring this to a close, but then we have no movie, do we?

Buckle in, and trust no one.
