This is what happens when your car breaks down on a Sunday morning and you have nothing else to do…
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…
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…
Since the day i saw this movie in the cinema and was completly flashed i had a new hobby to train lucid dreaming . Now i can controll my dreams and i can do anything i want inside them ;) I really hope there will be a second movie because this concept is new,fresh and deep
I LOVE THIS MOVIE ! <3
Beautiful, intense, and intelligent are just a few words to describe Christopher Nolens now 6 year old masterpiece named Inception. I did get to this movie a little late as last night was the very first time I had ever watched it. What I didn't know was how stellar the cast was. Leo nailed the role of cobs, and I still just can't believe that it wasn't until just a few months ago that he received his first Oscar. I didn't know Ellen Page was in the movie, so that was a plesent suprise as she had a pretty cool role. And the score by Hans Zimmer is frickin amazing. I love Hans Zimmer, and I will watch any movie…
I like to make fun of Nolan but he really is the height of blockbuster filmmaking right now.
Sure the dialogue is bogged down by a ridiculous amount of terrible, and at times completely unnecessary exposition. Sure the characters (with the exception of Cobb) are all one dimension caricatures of the arch-typical heist characters. And sure, the third dream just feels like Nolan is remaking the climax of On Her Majesty's Secret Service, but the film as a whole is such a technical marvel of action filmmaking it easy to look past some of these flaws.
Inception is original (maybe not wholly original as I'm not sure how much Nolan based off Paprika) slightly intelligent, and ridiculously entertaining. This is…

Best movie ever
It's been awhile since I've watched this which is a shame since I love it. Such an amazing film. I'm rewatching a lot of films while I'm prepping for my own film so it was great to revisit this one.
i hate imax and i saw this twice at imax so that's saying something
One of the first movies that made me want to make movies
Mind-bending, epic, wondrous, imaginative, and strange. Just a few words that could describe the Action Sci-Fi film of the decade. The film that will have you coming back again, just to have a chance to better understand it. Its visuals are unparalleled and truly awe-inspiring. The action is quick paced and smart, never feeling forced on. The score is massive and impacting. Everything about this movie is just simply, awesome.
