It has been a very long time since I have seen this, but was definitely a highlight when it first arrived back in 1995. An incredible debut from Danny Boyle, and the first film from Ewan McGregor too. I remember at the time all the buzz was about Christopher Eccleston becoming the next big thing, but I was convinced that it was the loud-mouthed ginger who would capitalise most from this excellent comic thriller. A British Coen Bros was a common compliment back then, and it more than holds up (both the film and the comparison) close to 20 years on.
