Inception ★★★★

this still plays to me like nolan's most personal work; an impressive technical feat of collaborative vision and design in the name of the working professionals who construct the fake worlds we project our feelings onto. a movie about a workaholic whose craft costs him irreversible time with his loved ones but who believes wholeheartedly in the value of fabricated/simulated catharsis as a form of world-changing therapy. as someone familiar with film editing i am blown away by a new cut almost every time i watch it, frequently having to move through plot construction, literal layered logistics of action and fractured, subjective feelings and memories simultaneously.
