I like what's "forced" about Trance too, that the characters and situations never felt too real. In a way, it reminded me of films from the "film noir" era, when there was supposed to be a suspension of disbelief regarding the characters' motivations and actions. To add to that atmosphere there's the surreal, dreamlike (or more like nightmarish) touches by Boyle. And using the Goya painting as a motif was pivotal, because this is how Trance should be preceived, I think, more as an allegory than reality. I think it's a fascinating film.
James was brilliant, as was Rosario. Vincent had a less complex character, but he's a compelling actor to watch. All in all, loved the acting in it; how the characters had different facets to them, and how the actors should portray them. It was so good.
