2. The film leads you down roads you weren’t expecting to take. Like, you think you’re going down this dark alley then into the countryside, but Mr Boyle actually takes you underground, through a river, up a mountain and then you only really get back onto level ground once the titles start rolling.
3. Just when you’re sure you’re following what’s going on in the film, something changes your confidence. Then the pace of cuts, music and atmosphere speeds up and your heart rate matches it. I like that about films.
4. It has the usual Danny Boyle dark humour with complex, fascinating storytelling. You know it's worth it.
5. The opening sequence is perfectly intriguing and interesting; you’re thrown into the film straight away and already asking questions.
6. There have been a lot of stylish, gorgeous looking films out recently and Trance might just be the nicest one to look at.
7. It’s only 101 minutes. Compared to the majority of rubbish out today, Danny Boyle doesn’t need the duration of over two hours to tell a captivating story.
8. James McAvoy stares into your soul, has his top off in a few scenes and at one point, reveals his bum.
After thinking about it for hours, I decided I really enjoyed Trance. I haven't had my emotions toyed with this much by a film in a while.
Trance is out in UK cinemas 27th March.
