London Kills Me is a 1991 film written and directed by Hanif Kureshi and starred Justin Chadwick and Steven Mackintosh. Set in West London, it's a darkly comic tale of a group of homeless drug-takers and general outsiders; the portrayal of life on London's streets was sympathetic, if bleak. The movie, critically panned on release and a failure at the box office, is now considered a meaningful indie snapshot of early 1990s London; it addresses themes similar to those in Trainspotting, which was released five years later.
