Trance

Director: Danny Boyle
 
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1924429

Review: Has some interesting visuals and music but is rife with logical fallacies and empty profundity.

Watch it if: You really feel the need to. I think it will only get less interesting once its outside of a cinema setting.
