Correct! That's a picture of James McAvoy in an MRI machine.
Danny Boyle's film noir that premiered in March 2013 and was released in July on DVD and Blu-ray. The film opened to mixed reviews although generally positive. It failed to generate much money at the box office but the production budget was only around $20 million. I think Boyle is used to not making much money with his films and picks projects that he is interested in. In this particular case he wanted to make a movie with a female lead.
It's a psychological thriller with several twists and turns that can't be discussed without spoilers. At times as I watched this movie I thought of Inception
although the story has more to do with hypnosis (trances), memories and paranoia than layered dreams. The film also stars Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson. Boyle is attempting to return nudity to films and the full frontal shot of Dawson was much appreciated.
