Inception [2010]

”Inception” is a movie that requires a lot of attention. And like most of Christopher Nolan’s movies (“Memento”, “The prestige”…), it will take your brain on a rollercoaster ride. The story is so beautifully crafted, that it’s almost impossible to find a plot hole. So far this year, I haven’t seen a movie as perfect as “Inception”. Even “Shutter Island” had its moments of weakness. Not the case in Nolan’s world; his movie is simply brilliant. Leonardo Dicaprio is perfectly cast as Dom Cobb, a skilled thief with the power to extract valuable information from deep within the subconscious during the dream state. In his final job, he is asked to plant an idea rather than steal it. And this is where the fun begins. With perfectly designed dreams, we are taken into a world beyond our imagination. I don’t think anyone could have pulled this off better than Nolan. His vision has no limits. And it’s easy to see why; “Inception” is definitely the best movie of the year so far, and possibly one of the all time greats aswell. Well done Mr. Nolan.

  1. Nolan never seizes to amaze me with his immersive movies!! and DiCaprio is always up there starring in my fav movies (the departed, Gangs of NY, blood diamond, Body of lies, Shutter island and much more). one word: MASTERPIECE!! this movie risks to become the new dark knight to me. Watchable several times and you u’ll always discover new things. Definetly a must buy Blu ray soon!
