"Filth" movie quotes take viewers on a raunchy ride that follows one Scottish cop who might just be losing his mind. Based on Irvine Welsh's novel of the same name, the crime-comedy movie was written and directed by Jon S. Baird. "Filth" opened in Scotland on September 27, 2013, then in the United States on May 30, 2014.

In "Filth," Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy) lives life to the fullest, complete with drugs, alcohol, promiscuity and many shenanigans. Inside, however, he strives to earn a promotion to Detective Inspector and to reach that end, he takes a case investigating the death of a Japanese student.

Somewhere along the way, Bruce falls into a deep hallucination leading the officer into madness. What follows is an epic battle both in his head and with his doctor (Jim Broadbent), friend Amanda (Imogen Poots), and those responsible for the murder. Meanwhile, deep down, Bruce also wishes to reunite with his wife and child, all difficult tasks, especially in his state of mind, or lack there of.

"Filth" hits theaters already buzzing with other great films such as "A Million Ways to Die in the West," "Maleficent," "Night Moves," "Blended," "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "The Immigrant," "The Love Punch, "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, "Million Dollar Arm," "Godzilla," "Palo Alto," "Chef," "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return Movie Quotes," "Neighbors," "Moms' Night Out," "Devil's Knot," "Belle," "Walk of Shame," and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."

    Bruce Robertson: "What does that make me then?"
    Bunty: "You're a policeman."
