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…
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'm bias for sentimental reasons. Inception is what got me into watching "more" movies. I still consider Raiders of the Lost Ark the film that got me into watching movies at a young age, but I've finally found the one that got me interested in film makers and branching out in terms of what I watch. Inception is the first film I watched in Christopher Nolan's wonderful filmography and finding a consistency of excellence in his filmography, I started looking at other director's works and finding more films through them (Tarantino, Fincher, etc.). So on and so forth I slowly began to branch out into watching all kinds of movies. This film also marks the first major time I had…

"Once an idea has taken hold in the brain it is almost impossible to eradicate," says Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio).
He should know. After all, he is an 'eradicator' – an industrial spy whose work involves infiltrating people's brains when they are in a vulnerable dream state and stealing their innermost secrets. His latest assignment is even more challenging – an 'inception', which involves not taking an old idea away, but implanting an entirely new one, without the subject, in this case corporate heir Robert Fischer (Cillian Murphy), ever suspecting that the idea was anyone's but his own in the first place.
Cobb's right-hand man Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) suggests that inception is impossible, but Cobb himself…
I believe the top stopped spinning.
The weakest Nolan movie I've seen but it's still great.
The sleek and breath-taking special effects are jaw-dropping sheer scope and provide additional effective in bringing cerebral imagination to life. unusual. To make it all more valid, Christopher Nolan is more concerned with his maze/puzzle of a plot and he dispenses formation of characters with careful precision.
Inception is fully realized and smart approaching a level of intelligence seldom found in mainstream action/adventure context. Hans Zimmer's musical score must be noted as playing a powerful role in creating a masterful and Rubik's Cube sort of logic to the cinematic experience. This movie comes close to brilliance and begs repeated viewings.
Is it good?
Is it anything beyond just "good"?
It's well written for sure, it's boasts fantastic performances, it's visually gratifying, and it's original. But, this film, like many of Christopher Nolan's recent efforts, is bloated, occasionally self-indulgent, and tries far too hard to be intelligent.
That's not to say it's not a smart film, it most definitely is, but it's not an ingenious masterpiece. I'm glad that it makes you think and question, it's already doing more for mainstream audiences than any of Michael Bay's efforts over the past 15 years, but, it's just trying far too hard to be genius.
Fuck yes, but don't put it on this overly high pedestal.
what a great film. many wild turns but thats what i loved about it. the suspense, the action, the beautiful combination of amazing actors coming together, what more can you ask for?! seriously though, great film, watch it when you want to lose yourself in thought.
One of Nolans best. Great shots and great acting. A better script and it's a perfect film.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
