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…
"You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger darling" - This is the one line I always remembered from Inception by the perfect Tom Hardy.
Inception is about a man named Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio), an ex-architect of dreams, who has to do the impossible task of planting an idea in a dead CEO son's mind Robert Fischer (Cillian Murphy). The movie follows the obstacles that Cobb & his team face achieving Inception.
First, I am going to be a girl because I have to talk about hot the eye candy is in here. Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy & Jordan Gordon-Levitt were all so good-looking so that added to the great storyline.
I watched this movie today for the second time ever…
wtf who thought of this
Una de mis películas favoritas. Es original, imaginativa y está muy bien estructurada. El argumento es complicado pero entendible. El desarrollo de los personajes es bueno al igual que el reparto. El desarrollo de la película es realmente asombroso. Una de mis películas favoritas.
you remind me of someone...a man i met in a half-remembered dream. he was possessed of some radical notions.
this, paired with the social network, was what got me into movies. they launched me into the world of film beyond comedy and animation, beyond chick flicks. they were my gateway drugs.
inception doesn't hold up as well as the social network does. it isn't as exciting or incredible as it was when i was thirteen. i've seen more now. i'm not as easily impressed. but it represents such a change in who i am that i'm not sure it's possible for me to evaluate it remotely critically. and anyway, other people who are far talented with words than i am…
Seen this four times, and I still can't figure it out.
This is one of those perfect movies. The effects are something I've never seen used in a movie. And that's exactly what this entire experience is; you've never had something like it. Often times, we sit down to watch a film to enjoy ourselves-to become engrossed. But this film was the epitome of an experience. I want to go ahead and rebuke the common claim that this movie is hard to follow, because it is not at all. Mind fucky, sure, but not hard to follow. Nolan is an artist of his craft, and this has to be his masterpiece.
The use of music, creative, never before used effects, and captivating stories is what makes Inception pretty great. The ending…
Nolan makes the best movies ever when you see them for that first time in theatres. After I got out of Inception I thought it was a genius masterpiece.
Then I saw it again. Like most of his movies (Memento still rules) once the tricks are known, once you aren't completely swept up by the moment, the whole thing comes crumbling down. Weak infrastructure.
But then, I'm also just bitter that it takes place in dreams and it isn't super wacky and hints at some repressed homosexuality like all dreams do.
I mean, wait, not that I--
don't take it personally
i actually really like and even love some of these, but their fans are awful
Oh, you've seen Citizen Kane but not Touch of Evil? You must not be a serious film nerd like me.…
