First time rewatching since it came out. Still an enjoyable thrill ride, but it does feel like Nolan sacrifices the really big ideas in order to make us puzzle over the small ones. In the end, Inception is more about figuring out where the characters are at any one moment and whether they can escape, rather than about the philosophical underpinnings of dream states and the nature of reality.
Extremely disappointing. How on Earth can you make a heist film this boring? The whole movie looks and sounds like it was made for a procedural on some third rate cable channel. (The scene transitions look like something out of a high school PowerPoint presentation.)
