Thoughts: What excites me most about director Danny Boyle is his willingness to take on different genres of films and putting his own spin on it. From sci-fi (Sunshine) to family drama (Millions), zombie mayhem (28 Days Later) to inspiring stories of survival (127 Hours) this is a director that won’t be put in a box. His newest effort harkens back to the film that put him on the map, 1997’s Shallow Grave (it’s no coincidence that Trance and Shallow Grave share the same screenwriter). That wickedly clever UK import was stylish without sacrificing substance and Trance looks like a similar outing. Assembling an appealing cast doesn’t hurt either and I’ve a feeling this will be a nice way to warm up the cold weather we’ve been shoveling through in the Midwest.
