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.
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…
So epic it hurts. I'm willing to gloss over the few plot questions it leaves and just be enveloped by the killer combo of Nolan & Zimmer (whose soundtrack, incidentally, makes *everything* feel epic if you put it on loud enough).
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…

I hate Chris Nolan, in the best possible way.
Αν θεωρήσουμε ότι τα πέντε αστεράκια πρέπει να μπαίνουν σε ταινίες που βάζουν το δικό τους λιθαράκι στη ζωή σου, τότε αυτό αξίζει και τα πέντε.
Ενδόμυχα πιστεύω ότι έχει αλλάξει τα όνειρα μου.
The good thing about Inception is I don't have to write anything here because everyone's already seen it and has their own opinion on it. I can tell you that seeing it for the third time DOES kind of make it lose some of it's charm though but oh well, I didn't have a choice.
The greatest idea:
If you Think your thoughts are safe, thay'll change your mind...
Your mind is the scene of the crime...
The dream is real, but How real it is?...
Phenomenal. I have waited 3 years to watch it and I am not disappointed. The special effects are just superb, DiCaprio is a brilliant actor along with most of the cast but the story is as complex as I hoped. And yet it fits together without many (if any) holes and is just a phenomenal film. The soundtrack really makes it what it is also. One of the best films I've ever seen.
By far the most sophisticated, intelligent & achingly cinematic film of the year. Magnificent.

Film #2 of 30 Amazing Movies
Inception is a movie about ideas, quite literally-- stealing them, creating them, their power and their ability to linger. But this is a Christopher Nolan movie, so of course it's about Big Ideas, about reality and heartbreak and choosing how to best live our too-brief lives. The fact that Inception is also fun and emotional and thrilling, even with all those eggheady concepts wrapped inside it, makes the movie a true marvel. It's perfect, and it's uncommonly ambitious and courageous.
Don't worry too much about spoilers for this film, as the central concepts of Inception are too complicated and frankly ridiculous sounding to be clear from the mouth of anyone but Nolan and his…
