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…
Everyone has one of those films that you see when you're younger and you can't quite appreciate it, but you know that you've seen something remarkable. I was young and I was starting to get into film, and I knew Nolan from The Dark Knight at the time, but nothing prepared my little mind for the brilliance that hit me like a freight train running at full speed while simultaneously falling off of a massive cliff. I was thunderously exhilarated and entranced by the whole thing, with every bullet and "kick" hitting my mind and my imagination with furious potency and startling vision. I sat in a packed auditorium with a goofy grin on my face for the entire duration…
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 still love this film tbh I know the rest of the world is over it but like rip me
Nolan has a huge fan base out there and possibly none of them who belong to it can even bear the idea of bad-mouthing the director. I'm a fan as well but I know Nolan isn't a perfect human being. I know how his recent outings are flawed and contain over-exposition to explain the plot. But, miraculously, Nolan has succeeded in capturing my awe, my fascination despite such fallacies and I find slipping head-over-heels when I watch them. Of all his films, Inception comes the closest to give me a head-ache, make me go breathless like I've run a hundred miles and even make me hit the pause button frequently as I just can't take it.
And it's not because…
Seen as an allegory to Nolan's endeavors in filmmaking, his dream worlds being constructed for us on screen (especially being that his wife is executive producer on each of his pictures), the film carries more weight. Works for me each and every time. Mainly for Wally Pfister's remarkable work behind the lens.
Inception is quite simply one of the greatest films I've ever seen. One that has even had an impact on my imagination. I believe it's Christopher Nolan's finest film (The Dark Knight and Interstellar are also two of my all time favorite films, I'm a Nolan Knight for life.) Inception has one of the most clever an thought provoking plots to any film I've ever seen in my life. It's anchored by one of Hollywood's all time best screenplays. It gives all the characters different quirks and develops the relationships quite brilliantly while able to explain the highly complicated world building the master Nolan himself built. I'm astonished how well this held up. I watched it for the first time…
Qué es la realidad? Un sueño, un recuerdo o una ilusión. Inception es alucinante, atemporal, intensa, compleja. Tiene el tinte de Nolan, la constante búsqueda de si mismo, el deseo de descubrir aquello que se es, el sentido de la existencia, incluso en el inconsciente, en el contenido cifrado de los sueños. Es una película sobre elinconsciente, escudriñar en la vida psiquica del otro, donde nos encontramos las resistencias en forma de tren, el superyo con nombre de mel, el propósito de instaurar una idea nueva, etc. Lo interesante es que le losnsueosncomonficcion se convierte en un espacio en el que se intenta huir de la realidad aunque la fantasía sea mas angustiante que la misma realidad, por la culpa y el dolor que se construyen en esta. Por momentos se excede en la parte del sueño dentro del sueño.
Lmao what......I love that qoute about that train tho
Even more brilliant on a re-watch!
One of my all time personal favorite films of all time. Or that what I use to say because funny enough on this revist I have happened to run into a few problems while watching the film.
What what I caught this time around was the film was really clunky in areas and actually had maybe too many things going on at once. I feel like the film needed some breathing room and to actually try to develop these characters a little more rather than just keep on going to the action. There are moments where the film also happens to get a little boring with it action scenes too like the whole snow mountain scene to me has akways…
Ive personally had dreams and this isnt very realistic.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
