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…
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…
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).
One of my all time favorites. Unique plot and good characters. Watched over and over again.
Nolan's clever blockbuster requires just enough brain from the viewers to make them feel satisfied while the on-screen spectacle is both eye-pleasing and incredibly smart.
What a film! Inception has one of the most intelligent screenplays, amazing story, great cast and is possibly the peak of Nolan's career so far. The many twists, the superb special effects, the interesting main subject of the film are only part of the film's greatness. The best part of the film is that somehow, within its chaotic genius, it makes sense; and that is solely because of the directing accuracy of Christopher Nolan, which establishes him as one of the most important directors of all time.
I don't mean to sound like a hater because I'm not and because I don't hate this movie either, but I need to say it: I think Inception is an extremely overhyped and overrated movie. While the idea of getting into people's dreams in order to manipulate them or whatever this film is about is a really interesting one, that's pretty much all there is concerning the movie's plot.
Albeit it had a good start, eventually the storyline became messy and decidedly uneven, and not only did Christopher Nolan over-explain things but he also mixed up the rules of the world he himself created while he was making them up along the way. Long story short, Inception betrayed itself and…
As the mercurial street poets S Club 7 once said "I've never had a dream come true"
Τι παίχτηκε; Έπεσε η σβούρα ή όχι;
Τρελή ταινία.. Αγαπώ το soundtrack!
Endlessly re-watchable, ambitious, one of the best of decade.
The movie begins to collapse under its own weight in the second act--Leo is serviceable but is by this point in his career (2010) heavily typecasted which renders his performances rather boring.
