The DVD: Trance



Do you sometimes finish watching a movie and don’t know how you feel about it? Whether it was interesting or not, if you liked it or not? If you have, then you understand what I mean when I say I am not sure about the movie Trance. First, I found it too confusing. There were too many flash backs – at some point it was hard to tell the present day scenes from the flash backs.
Trance tells a tale about an art auctioneer Simon (James McAvoy) who gets into a mix up with criminals when he tries to stop them from stealing an art piece.

They track him down, determined to get it back but unfortunately, after being beaten up so bad, he suffers amnesia and can’t recall where he kept it. The amnesia is pretense. He is taken to a hypnotherapist Elizabeth (Rosario Dawson) to help him recover it and she messes up with his mind. He remains adamant though and Elizabeth increases the pressure.  The one thing this movie succeeds in doing is confusing, it is also a drag and I must warn you that it is not a very clean one as well.
