“Trance” – Danny Boyle’s Follow-Up to the Opening Ceremony

If you were a movie director who just spent the last four years creating the opening ceremony for the Summer Olympics, what would you make your next project after the Games? Danny Boyle decided to change directions away from the large scales and bombast of the Olympics opening ceremony and take a trip back to his roots with “Trance”. Boyle’s first film was crime thriller “Shallow Grave”, and it seems he is looking to come full circle with his upcoming release focusing on an art thief who has lost his memory. The cast, including James McAvoy and Rosario Dawson among others, is talented and should make the film’s story keep you on the edge of your seat. Boyle’s directing talent is immense and many of his usual techniques should fit nicely with the genre. I just hope “Trance” doesn’t fall into the territory of some of his recent work, such as “Slumdog Millionaire” and “127 Hours” (while Boyle’s directing is great, the films were not that interesting to me). Can “Trance” recapture Danny Boyle’s earlier magic?
