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.
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…
"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.
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…
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…
Part Three Of Preparing (As Much as Humanly Possible) For Interstellar
The true mastery of Inception lies in its ability of combining pop entertainment with a stylish and artful execution. For every explosion and wonderfully loud gunfight, there's another moment of passionate drama and dreamy pathos. Truly, Inception is a film for everyone. Action, drama, humor, suspense, story, emotion; It's got everything. Plus, if you're like me and you're looking for some deeper subtext, you could write an entire thesis on Nolan's film and how he discusses dreams, layers, guilt, and the subconscious emptiness of the mind.
Basically, Inception is another Nolan masterpiece.
Christopher Nolan's direction is just as fluid and classy as ever, highlighting the instabilities of the dream…
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…
A cinematic masterpiece of Christopher Nolan's.
A watched this film quite a while after it became a very talked-about film. It had been talked about so much I already pretty much envisioned what the film was, and anticipated watching it would be somewhat akin to the intellectual equivalent of bashing my head against a wall. But it wasn't. It was actually pretty simple. There was nothing at all confusing about this movie, unless you found yourself asking why everyone's dreams were so normal. That was really confusing. I really loved the movie.
Saw this one a couple of times and the beauty is that you can and not be bored. There are things you miss about the twisty turny story line and it is definitely one that makes you think and talk about later. I enjoyed this film immensely and would recommend it.
MOVIE A DAY FOR A YEAR - DAY 206
Inception never ceases to amaze me, and I seem to know more about it after every viewing.
Officially my all time favourite. Clever, suspenseful, original, intriguing.
Mind = fuck
That's the only two words (plus a symbol) I can think of describe
Third time I've watched it and probably the most ive gotten from it as the first two viewings involved drink and company,
Watching it again has brought to the though of 'what one man will do to prove his innocence'
I love what Christopher Nolan did with the direction including a amazing scene involving the Paris only Mr Sharp can dream of.
Really enjoyed the film - some great special effects including building and rotating (vertically) a whole Hotel room + corridor
Was it reality at the end for Cobb? Who knows?
But that's part of the fun
(Quick note) seems like Nolan brought in / used a few actors in this and the batman trilogy
Cillian Murphy etc
Interesting film with some good effects.
I've seen this film so many times that I was bored and easily distracted whilst watching it.
Watching it again has forced me revise its rating. Only a 3.5 in my opinion.
Released nationwide on July 16, 2010, this sci-fi action triller from critically acclaimed director Christopher Nolan grossed over $800 million dollars, and quickly became one of the highest rated films of all time. The involved plot follows Leonardo DiCaprio as Dominic Cobb, a man who is tasked to sneak into someone's dream, and plant an original idea in the furthest depths of their mind - a practice known by the film's title. Cobb recruits a team, and uses a dream-within-a-dream approach to navigate the subconscious world of their target, and plant an idea that'll benefit Cobb's employer.
While the plot is very well woven, and complicated, it isn't actually hard to understand, just as long as you pay attention. Following…
I am very impressed by Christopher Nolan and very much enjoy this movie.
This time I was ironing all the way through but kept rapt enough in attention that I almost burnt my hand a couple of times.
Interesting ideas, even when not necessarily fully coherent. There were numerous bits I looked forward to as they came up.
