Trance by Danny Boyle, 2013 (R)

with James McAvoy (The Conspirator, X-Men: First Class), Vincent Cassel (Adrift (À Deriva), A Dangerous Method), Rosario Dawson (Unstoppable, Men In Black 2, Love in the Time of Money), Matt Cross, Wahab Sheikh, Danny Sapani, Mark Poltimore, Tuppence Middleton, Simon Kunz, Michael Shaeffer, Tony Jayawardena, Vincent Montuel, Michael Fassbender (Prometheus, Haywire, A Dangerous Method, Shame, X-Men: First Class)

Danny Boyle directs this psychological thriller about an art heist gone wrong and the hypnotist who's hired to ferret out the missing masterpiece. Everything is a jumble after an auctioneer gets hit in the head while double-crossing some art thieves.

Inception with amphetamines, right? Well, everything Boyle is always a bit too much. This one doesn't miss. Regarding the initial idea, the search of memory where the brain tried to erase, or perhaps something more, very interesting. The one hour revealing aka eternal ending is absolutely annoying, to say the least. The switch in roles, layers after layers after layers, jumping from reality to hypnoses, ping pong between violence and hysteria and more gets you lost, and found with a barely interesting conclusion.
