Inception ★★★★★

The second film in Christopher Nolan's "In" trilogy (Insomnia, Inception and Interstellar), Inception is a modern classic. While it imitates the mind bending process of spinning a room upside down from 2001, other visual effects have been mimicked since it came out like the folding of a city in Dr. Strange. It may seem overly literal, character names that give away character arcs, metaphors with jobs in the movie industry. However, there are other story points, treating addiction to dreams like an opioid problem or sabotaging a business competitor with therapy to come to terms with a bad relationship with a father. This month's movie of the month, I pair Inception with a dream based movie from Alfred Hitchcock, Spellbound, from 1945.

Full review.
