Preview: Trance (2013)


To prove it can be done, a psychologist hypnotizes an unsuspecting man who carries out a major art heist only to forget he ever did, leading him on an escape from the ruthless art smuggler who wants it back.

  • Poster: C


It carries forward the glitching theme of the trailer, but not in such a way that will make enough sense to the audience.

  • Trailer: B+


The construction of the trailer paint a picture of a fascinating heist film with appealing actors and stylish design elements. This is the Danny Boyle a lot of us grew to love after Trainspotting, not the cheap Oscar-baity sell-out of Slumdog Millionaire. I also love the brief appearance of the title of another of his films: 28 Days Later.

Oscar Prospects:

The Oscars never really cared much for Boyle before Slumdog, so it's possible they will give this film the time of day; however, being a thriller, the Academy may once again turn a blind eye to him.
