This diabolical thriller was the first film from director Danny Boyle, producer Andrew Macdonald, and screenwriter John Hodge (the smashing team behind Trainspotting). Three self-involved Edinburgh roommates-played by Kerry Fox, Christopher Eccleston, and Ewan McGregor, in his first starring role-take in a brooding boarder. When he dies of an overdose, leaving a suitcase full of money, the trio embark on a series of very bad decisions, with extraordinarily grim consequences for all. Macabre but with a streak of offbeat humor, this stylistically influential tale of guilt and derangement is a full-throttle bit of Hitchcockian nastiness.

Three uptight yuppies take a new roommate. Before long, he turns up dead with a fortune in cash. They decide to keep the money and get rid of the body. Good choice.
