Welcome to Flashback Fandor! Our staff of movie scientists have dug through our Library-of-Congress-sized archives to unearth our best (and still topical) videos and articles. 

We can't think of a better way to celebrate the news that Danny Boyle is working on Bond 25 than to reflect on some of the stylistic trademarks the director has employed throughout his genre-spanning career. From the haunted-house-in-space tension of Sunshine, to the zombie-infested future of 28 Days Later, and the Oscar awarded drama, Slumdog Millionaire, Boyle seamlessly slips into different modes of filmmaking and storytelling by employing a myriad of skills. High-angle, low-angle, impossible-angle. Surreal compositions and colors. Timelapses and dream sequences. Each one of these techniques have been honed by the chameleon director and used to bring his movies to life. Watch Trainspotting here on Fandor to see Boyle's array of skills in action.
