Your mind is the scene of the crime.
Cobb, a skilled thief who commits corporate espionage by infiltrating the subconscious of his targets is offered a chance to regain his old life as payment for a task considered to be impossible: "inception", the implantation of another person's idea into a target's subconscious.
"Inception," at its most basic, is two things. It is a heist film dressed in science fiction conventions; and it is a study of a man trying to free himself from a near-suffocating past. "Inception," at its more complex, is a cerebral pop-masterpiece. It is an enthralling combination of thought-provoking, layered story-telling and sumptuous aesthetics enhanced by near-flawless editing, sound design, effects, and musical score. Driven by a pitch-perfect cast and the confident directorial hand of Christopher Nolan, "Inception" is a brilliant and unrivaled piece of filmmaking.
The Wolf of Wall Street stars in Christopher Nolan's smart dreamy dream so much more than just a popcorn muchin' Hollywood blockbuster. Ocean waves. Sand castles. Mush. Godzilla's pal. JGL's natural born screen charisma. Falling house. Triple dream? Fast train. Top spin. Poor Lukas. Betting on a chance. Sir Michael Caine is the motherfucker. Ellen after Juno. Maze test. Complicated as fuck architectural work. You can share dreams? Grumpy strangers. Moving mirrors. Dreamin' like you're Biggie Smalls. Intense baby mama drama. The totem. The moment you realize Tom Hardy is the real deal. Why doesn't Dileep Rao act more? Cold water. Sgt. Barnes. Verbal Kint's best mate. Scarecrow. The crazy as fuck hunch that Christopher Nolan likes to use the…
With big films like this I tend to weigh different aspects of filmmaking and rate them separately. The final rating is then an average of all scores. I don't know why, but I feel I need to structure this review that way and try to give an accurate analysis. Whenever one of Nolan's films is criticized it tends to veer towards a right wrong discussion. Nolan has a huge fanbase and they are welcome to defend his films, but as a self proclaimed 'Nolan indifferent' I honestly have to say that I haven't enjoyed his latest efforts and often for the same reasons. I will try to write up how the final rating is compiled. My apologies in advance for…
Taking ideas from many sci-fi classics & seamlessly blending it with the ambience of James Bond thrillers, Inception is an original, inventive & ambitious sci-fi wonder from Christopher Nolan that manages to live up to its monumental hype & expectations amazingly well, and even today continues to be the subject of discussion amongst many movie-buffs, thanks to its multi-layered narration, surreal structure & ambiguous ending.
A contemporary sci-fi thriller set within the architecture of the mind, the story of Inception presents a future where technology exists to enter people's dreams & share them. The plot concerns Cobb; a highly skilled extractor notable for stealing ideas & confidential information from his target's subconscious, who assembles a team to carry out a near-impossible task for a wealthy businessman…
A week ago I wrote a particularly hateful piece on Christopher Nolan's latest abomination, The Dark Knight Rises. Since then I've been thinking hard, perhaps too hard, about why it is that I can't for the life of it enjoy the critically acclaimed “masterpiece” Inception. At the time it came out it was THE thing to talk about, nothing even came close to being as hot as the apparently intellectually stimulating blockbuster that is this movie. I had seen The Prestige, which I just loved, and the two Batman movies when I first saw it, so I was reasonably excited about it, especially because I'm a big fan of the Sci-Fi genre. The problems, however, are many-fold and it is…
I must have seen Inception a dozen times now, and on every single viewing it feels like the first time around. That surely testifies to the genuine brilliance pouring from Christopher Nolan's epic, which I first reviewed on release back in July 2010; that review, for the most part, stands below as I feel the same way about this movie as I did the first time I experienced it. Simply, this is exactly what a modern blockbuster should truly be - innovative, exciting, emotional and with something to say. The success of Nolan's film, and its subsequently populist seeping into pop culture, proves that with the right talent in front of and behind the camera you can create a truly…
We've been watching this in English class for unknown reasons, because my teacher is lazy and probably fits the "nolanite" stereotype more than anyone I've ever met. But whatever, I like Inception, and at least I don't have to do work.
This isn't as much of a review as it is a rant. You've been warned.
Now I love Inception, not because it is "mind-bending", but because it creates an enjoyable and unique world that is full of tension and suspense. I remember when I saw it in the cinema, quite the experience.
As much as I love Inception, I can't help but think people blow it out of proportion. People act like it is hard to understand, but it…
Interpretation of dreams by Sigmund Freud made into an action movie
Probably one of my favorite movies. Inception is a masterpiece unlike most. From the start to the finish you're on the edge of your seat trying to follow along, trying to figure out what is real and what's not and keeping up with the banter between Eames and Arthur. Loved it.
Amazing heist movie on the surface, gets way better once you add in all the intellectual crap. Love it.
Well written and produced movie. Really makes you think, which I love movies like that.
This movie is overwhelmingly underwhelming. There's so much going on, or at least the perception there is, that I become disinterested and bored. I do like the fact that the technology in the movie isn't explained, it's just accepted.
Also, in all the explosion of subplots, plot twists, and conspiracy theories, Ken Wantabe's character stood out and was my favorite. You gotta tip your hat off to any CEO capitalist that gets his hands dirty to better his company. He ended up doing a lot of grunt work and was a boss about it.
The rest of the cast was excellent as well but by the time the movie is over, I felt like I know how Kent Wantabe's character feels in the end when he's stuck in limbo. In any event, it should be watched for posterity.
So. Frickin'. Cool.
