|Directed by||Gustav Machaty|
A drug-fueled landscape impacted by the Thatcher years, characterized by Scottish working class misery and massive unemployment feeding the underground drug economy. And reflecting Welsh's own conflicting personas as cult figure, pariah and antichrist. Full Review
Rating: C- -- Ecstasy attempts to conjure the same sense of insanity, musical muscle, and impish wit, only to stumble repeatedly as it struggles to put on a dazzling sound and light show. Full Review
Rating: 1/5 -- The movie's low-level chat about uppers (boy, you wouldn't give this movie a nickel for its small talk) does little to peddle Welsh's undoubted brilliance. Full Review
Its fondness for the writer and the drug film genre may be evident; however neither can turn Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy into anything more than an inferior homage. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- The film is supposed to be a transformational romance going from the love of ecstasy to the ecstasy of love but the two leads can't manage it any more than the director. Full Review
London Evening Standard
Rating: 2.5/5 -- One gets the feeling this director doesn't think his target audience is all that smart. Full Review
Sydney Morning Herald
Rating: 2.5/5 -- In the end, ECSTASY wants to have it both ways -- drugs are celebrated at the beginning of the film, and condemned -- or at least the crime connected with them is - by the end.

When a young bride discovers her older husband's impotence, she seeks attention elsewhere. Hedy Lamarr appears in the nude and in a state of sexual passion in this film that caused an international scandal and made her a star. Incredible enlightened and progressive in its portrayal of sexuality (particularly female sexuality), ECSTASY has become a landmark of European cinema.
In this romantic drama filled with erotic imagery, a young bride (played by Hedy Lamarr) realizes she is unhappy after marrying a much older man. As a result, she begins an affair with a young man and becomes torn between him and her husband ... with tragic results.
- While this film was banned by the United States Treasury Department for revealing too much of Hedy Lamarr (Hedy Kiesler), this Czech film was also banned in Germany because Hedy Lamarr was Jewish. Defending the film and the nude scene, American distributor Jacques Koerpel was quoted as saying "Evil to him who evil thinks," when he heard of the decision to barr its release. The film was originally titled "Symphony of Love."
