    Possibly the most original blockbuster ever, Inception is as multilayered as the dreams themselves, making for many theories and separate ideas.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Nolan is always knocked for his visual storytelling and action direction and understandably so, but regardless his films are always visually interesting in that the combination of production value and creative and inventive thoughts are explored on screen in ways that few filmmakers are approaching. The cinematography usually seems cold and unemotional, but that helps set and/or reflect the dark tone that resonates with Nolan’s fans. Maybe that is hyperbolic, but I can’t think of many filmmakers that approach a…

    For a film about dreams, set in dreams, etc., never really feels like a dream, does it? I mean, this could be me stretching five years after seeing it for the first time but I genuinely feel a huge disconnect between content and form here. Everything feels constructed where it should feel free-form and loose. Everything feels free-form and loose where it should feel constructed. It never really lines up and delivers on being about dreams. But, despite that, one…

    Stunning imagery, solid performances and a fantastic plot. A little let down by the weak character development and supporting characters.

    Incredible visual impact and detailed storyline. The film is so well organized that the audience might at first feel confused about where the first theme comes from, but then the story itself explains how reality and dreams merge in some people and how people dive into the deepest level in a dream. Fantastic concept and soundtrack.

    Rewatching this for the umpteenth time, I realize my love of this is very similar to my love of Mad Max: Fury Road, in the sense that the filmmakers have a very distinct theme they want to explore, while also infusing it with next-level visuals. The perfect balance of thought and entertainment, at least for me.

    Yes, none of it's subtle, but I love the way Nolan & Miller both took a couple hundred million dollars and released amazingly entertaining (yet still personal) statements.

    Late 5 year Anniversary Retrospective review.

    ''Where you mind is the scene of a crime...''

    I was fortunate enough to find out about this film around I'd say six months before release, I looked up to see what the latest film by no other then Nolan was. It was Inception, I looked the poster, read the synopsis, and was quite excited. The marketing for Nolan's films are always really smart , just a big…

    La podría ver mil veces sin cansarme. De hecho, la HE visto mil veces, y me encanta que cada vez que la veo descubro un detallito nuevo. Mi película favorita, no hay más.

    ‘Don’t you want to take a leap of faith? Or become an old man, filled with regret, waiting to die alone’

    I remember going to see Inception in the cinema having no idea what it was about, aside from the fact that dreams were instrumental somehow. And I remember coming out after watching it thinking ‘this is the best film I have ever seen and will likely ever see’. Five years on (shit, time has flown by, I feel like…

    The fascinating thing about this movie beyond the impeccable performances, imaginative story lines, and fervent sound design is its ability to engage meaningful exposition with continual high stakes action.

    This is an impeccable film that has the unique quality of becoming better each and every time you watch it. Nolan truly put together a master class with incredible directorial decisions along with a very interesting story. This film weaves together interesting scenes and worlds that would normally all feel disjointed but completely work in the context of this movie. This film has powerful visual effects and wonderful acting performances, notably as usual by one of my favorite actors Leonardo…
