Inception is the closest thing i’ve ever seen to a perfect film. It maps out an intricate web of big ideas, character dynamics and bold questions, throughout which there is threaded one beautiful story. Never before has such a complex concept been conveyed so simply and felt so powerful.
It’s one of those films where you can go back and watch it a 10th time and still pick up on something you’d never realised before- there’s so much going on: the ethics of the big job, understanding dream mechanics in this world, ‘did the token topple?’- ‘does it matter?’. All things you’ll understand after watching it.
The performances are fantastic, the score is era defining and Christopher Nolan has truly outdone himself.
