  1. As usual I’m going to go further back, and I prefer his earlier films anyway.
    1. Shallow Grave (1994) – also starring Christopher Eccleston and directed by Danny Boyle.
    2. Trainspotting (1996) – created a style all of its own. Also directed by Danny Boyle. Great soundtrack.
    3. Brassed Off (1996) – Great story and full of great actors, especially Pete Postlethwaite.
    4. Little Voice (1998) – Another great story and great cast – Michael Caine, Brenda Blethyn.
    5. Moulin Rouge (2001) – Directed by Baz Luhrmann
