Top 10 Human Traffic scenes

Time to revisit one of the best weekends clubland has ever seen

In terms of films about clubbing and off-their-face ravers, there really isn't anything like Human Traffic. A baby-faced John Simm and pre-Football Factory Danny Dyer shine as part of a Cardiff-based crew dedicated to class As, booze, dancefloors and chatting shit. Matthew Herbert contributed towards the soundtrack, on which Pete Tong supervised, and Carl Cox even makes a cameo as a shit-scary club owner. What more could a raver want from a movie?

17 years on from its release, news surfaced yesterday that director Justin Kerrigan is working on a sequel, with Mr Dyer hinting on Twitter that he'd be returning as the hilarious, Star Wars-obsessed Moff. It's only right we round up the best scenes from the film in celebration of the follow-up.

The opener

Film introductions don't get much better than the narrator, in this case John Simm's Jip, telling the watcher that he's struggling to get it up. Once he's done sounding bitter about his friend Mr Floppy, we get to know the "craftsman" Koop, Nina the "absolute mistress", "full-on club minx" Lulu and the nutty Moff, "the biggest pill monster" Jip knows. Once the character intros are out of the way, we're treated to loads of archive rave footage, the perfect warm-up for one of the best clubland films ever made.
