    I watched the Director's Edition. I last watched this in 2000 when the special edition DVD was released. I think I was far too young to appreciate how much of a masterclass this motion picture truly is ... how it captures the grandeur and wonder of space while also providing philosophical, theological, and metaphysical challenges to its audience. I literally stood up and clapped after this viewing.

    I reluctantly watched this after years of avoiding Christopher Nolan, who I do not care for at all. I thought, ok ... Best Picture nominee, great cast, interesting imagery ... maybe I should finally give it a shot.

    And yeah, it sucks. As usual, Nolan has no sense of spatial awareness so any scene of action is confusing and non-sensical. And I really wish Cronenberg or David Lynch did this film because the MYSTERY of dreams is missing here. Everything…
