Michael's Review of Trance
After a string of mainstream hits (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours), "Trance" is Danny Boyle's return to the more eccentric genre fare he was known for, and he really directs the hell out of what is one of the best entertainments of the year. In Boyle tradition, It's a fantastic piece of visual filmmaking... but the cast is great, the soundtrack is kinetic, and the energy of the film is absolutely infectious as well. In the end I STILL can't grasp all of the plot's intricacies and I'm left a bit dizzy, but that's just par for the course in a movie aptly named "Trance." Trying to put it all together is so much fun that it hardly even matters.
