Inception ★★★★

I can't believe this is the fourth time I've tried this film and only now have I actually finished it. Though I have to say that I'm still very confused with some aspects of the film.

It goes without saying that the visual effects, the editing, and the cinematography are all impeccable. The script and the direction are also amazing and the film wouldn't be much without any of these attributes. I feel like the performances are drastically overlooked in this film; they are really moving and feel genuine throughout. The conflict and tension adds an interesting, compelling element to this and the drama that arises from this is particularly thrilling in itself. Some moments were a bit slow, sure, and some scenes felt quite dull next to others but overall this is a great film and definitely worth a watch (though you do have to invest quite a lot into it!)

Score: 80/100
