There's no two ways about it, Inception is a brilliant film.
It's narrative is intelligent and conceptual.
The technical film making was genius.
The casting was amazing.
This is my second time of watching Inception, and I can definitely say, I got a lot more from it this time around. The story of dreams, within dreams, within dreams.... cont..... fell into place more this time.
Great film, go watch.
Probably the best thing i have ever seen since the last i looked in a mirror.
I decided this was one of my favorite films before I ever saw it. I saw the trailer a few hundred times and knew that it was just trippy enough to make my brain hurt but still action packed and a hand picked cast of perfection. After seeing it my sisters and I argued about the ending. I was not deciding on whether or not the top falls, rather I was focused on being absolutely sure that Nolan chose the…
Rewatching this revealed that it's not the exposition that the issue here (there's way less than you remember), but Leo's delivery of it is just plain stiff and off. It's like he's really uncomfortable with it, despite being generally very good in the role. It's odd because his emotional journey through the character feels totally genuine, and he nails that dead-wife guilt he's become known for in a much more reserved, low key way than before. But yeah, stiff line…
I've seen this film so many times now that somehow it's distorted my own sense of time and it positively zips by at a breakneck pace.
Still positively one of my top three favourite films of all time and a definite desert island disc.
8 for 8.
On the eve of another Christopher Nolan picture being unleashed on the masses, the time, once again, calls for me to go back to a previous film of his that I haven't fully watched in a long while.
INCEPTION was the pick. I've lost count how many times I've seen the film but even with the exposition heavy first half of the picture (that has, I'll admit gotten at tad stale 4 years later), the mastery at…
brilliant film, every time I watch this it just gets better and better
The film Inception opens with Cobb, the protagonist, face down washed up onto a beach. Cobb is in and out of conciseness and in his state of delusion he see's the image of two children playing on the beach. This vision is interrupted when he is approached by an armed guard and brought into a penthouse and carried into a large room and presented to a very old man, it is inferred that this is the old man house because…
Great film and even though I enjoyed it more than my last viewing I still feel that Nolan fell short of capturing the look and feel of a dream. This is a heist film though that only uses the dreams as a tool to help tell the story and Nolan definitely knows how to do that. Everything else filmmaking wise is amazing and I love how the third layer in the mountains could easily be mistaken as an action set…
it made my brain hurt, in a good way.
Like most Nolan films, it really goes down on a rewatch...sadly. Of all of Nolan's work, this really feels that it's not him.
Sure, the high concept and intricate plot are up his alley - and he pulls them off well to dig into the psyche of human consciousness, and at the root of it, finds that greed supersedes often times. But really, most of the action sequences are jarring. Are they good? Yes, but it makes me really think,…
