I did not like Trance. I almost fell asleep during Trance. Despite this it would be absolutely foolish to overlook the wonderful work McAvoy does in the Danny Boyle film. While not quite the actors showcase some might’ve hoped upon first watching the trailer, it was at the very least a character that McAvoy could sink his teeth into and obviously did so with unfiltered glee. Delivering a performance that centers itself on the tricky notion of duality, as he’s forced to play someone who is both completely out of control while also pulling all of the strings, McAvoy makes it so that we’re never quite sure where his character is coming from, what his motives are and if he’s ultimately as trustworthy and blindsided as he’s letting on until the very last moments.
