'Trainspotting'

The poison: Heroin -- a.k.a. chasing the dragon, smack, dope, horse, junk The contenders: “Pulp Fiction,” “Panic in Needle Park,” “The Basketball Diaries,” “The Man With the Golden Arm,” “Requiem for a Dream,” “Trainspotting” Our pick: We’re going to go contemporary and choose “Trainspotting,” mostly because that scene in which the baby crawls on the ceiling has stuck with us more than a decade later. Although for a generation before us, the quintessential film was surely “The Panic in Needle Park,” with Al Pacino; and for the generation before that, it was “The Man With the Golden Arm” with Frank Sinatra.
