Listen to a Taste of Rick Smith’s Score for Danny Boyle’s ‘Trance’ and See a New Batch of Stills
Danny Boyle’s upcoming art heist thriller, Trance, might just be his most visceral film yet. Between Rick Smith’s pulsating soundtrack, Anthony Dod Mantle’s arresting and optically stimulating cinematography, the editing of the film, and Boyle’s hypnotic direction, we’re left in a trance of our own wondering just what happened to our mind. And now, you can get a deeper look into the brain of the film with a new interactive official website for Trance, as well as another site that mainly highlights Smith’s massive soundtrack. Having worked with Boyle for over a decade, the Underworld frontman knows how to enhance Boyle’s creative vision by not only engaging our emotions but our senses and our heartbeat.
In case you’ve forgotten, Trance tells the story of a young auctioneer (played by James McAvoy) who gets roped into the theft of a high-priced paiting by a group of theives, led by Vincent Cassel. But after a series of violent events, he awakes in a state of amnesia. From there, the gang he was working with enlists the help of a hypnotherapist (Rosario Dawson) to help him try and tap into his subconscious memories to unlock what he could have done with the painting.
