I guess that nobody will question by now that Christopher Nolan is a great director. With films like The Dark Knight, Batman Begins and Memento, he showed to be one of the best directors at the moment. The question was whether he would continue to make a movie that good.
The poster says: “Your mind is the scene of the crime.” And that is precisely what the film is about. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a master when it comes to creating dream worlds and stealing other people’s ideas from their dreams. By putting people in a deep artificial sleep he goes into their dreams with his subconscious.
At one moment he was approached to insert an idea instead of stealing an idea. Dom decides to take the almost impossible task. He puts a team of experts together for this operation. Saito, his client is also there to supervise.
Dreams never have a definite beginning. That’s why Nolan regularly started shooting in the middle of a scene. It is not always clear for the viewers whether you’re in a dream or reality. Inception in fact is not difficult to follow, as long as you keep track.
Christopher Nolan did it again. Inception is an outstanding movie. A film full of interesting ideas, surprising twists, flashy action scenes, good acting and a great story. From beginning to end the movie to stays interesting.
