Irvine Walsh's 'Ecstasy' & Films About Dance Culture

As films in this line go, there's been some bad ones, some enduring ones (regardless of their quality) and some great ones (It's All Gone Pete Tong, for example). Usually drugs and death are in the mix. Aside from Footloose of course when dancing itself was the sinful vehicle for the 'high'.

We saw Danny Boyle's adaptation of Walsh's book in Trainspotting, it set a bar for pop film style. But what will Irvine Welsh's new film Ecstasy, adapted from The Undefeated, the third novella in Welsh’s book Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance, be setting?

So far reviews are less then even luke warm. No rush 'n high here then.
