Trance by Danny Boyle

August 5, 2013

Let’s face it, there is only one reason why people are talking about Trance by Danny Boyle and it has nothing to do with its cinematic or entertainment value since the reason is Rosario Dawson‘s full frontal and for once “people” are right, they are right because miss Dawson is a stunning beauty and – my main concern here – because there is nothing else noteworthy to see in this movie.

The above image from Trance looks like a mess and it reflects the overall look of the film. Boyle and screenwriter John Hodge deliver another load of extreme characters like the ones they have already presented in the past – Shallow Grave or Trainspotting – and Boyle executes his directorial duties with his usual kinetic and breathtaking style but the result is quite boring, no matter how many tricks Boyle uses to dazzle us. Hitchcock‘s Spellbound and Nolan‘s Memento are the first titles coming to my mind when I think of past films who have played in the same ballpark where Boyle has staged his latest opus, but he is out of his league here, you will not need the services of an hypnotist to forget Trance.
