No, this post has nothing to do with Susan Boyle. It does have to do with dreams. Inception (2010) is a film all about dreams.
This is going to be a spoiler-free post, so if you haven’t seen it yet, don’t worry. Inception, in general terms is a brainy action-adventure film that deals with going into dreams with more than one person. That’s all I’m going to say.
My first impression of this film was “Wow, that was COMPLEX!” In all honesty, this might have been the most complex and biggest ‘thinker’ movie I’ve ever seen. (The Matrix series is a close second.) You need to be pretty intelligent to successfully watch this film.
The concepts are amazing. The writing and imagination is quite incredible. The characters are relate-able humans, but still are incredibly impressive. The acting was phenomenal. Leonardo DiCaprio is an extraordinarily talented actor. He gets into the role like none other. The supporting cast was solid (Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Ken Watanabe). The music was excellent. Hans Zimmer rarely disappoints.
Inception was stunning, brain exercise that really worked. This is what movies are all about. I would give it an Oscar (or a few). Christopher Nolan does it again. It runs 148 minutes and is rated PG-13. I give it what it deserves: 10 ramheads out of 10.
