Oh god oh god oh god oh god!



I am DROOLING over this film.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS: Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the best in the dangerous art of extraction: stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible–inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse; their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

DIRECTED BY: Christopher Nolan
WRITTEN BY: Christopher Nolan
CAST: Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Michael Caine
STUDIO: Warner Bros.



The premise of INCEPTION is that people can share dreams. However, only a select few have the ability to enter dreams, control what happens, and then steal valuable information from some unsuspecting target. These dream thieves, if you will, are known as “extractors.” And one Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is the best extractor of them all.

While Cobb is the #1 guy in his profession, he’s also on the lam. He can’t return to his home in the United States because he is wanted for a crime that he did not commit. However, his unfortunate circumstance could change when he’s offered one last job by a Japanese businessman (Ken Watanabe) who promises to pull a few strings and make all of Cobb’s “legal problems” go away. The catch? He isn’t needed to steal information this time, he’s got to plant a suggestion.

This is what is known as “Inception.”

The kicker is whether or not inception can actually be done. Cobb insists it can and he’s the one that can do it. Why is he so confident? Well, that’s one of the many mysteries that’s explored in this film.

OK, this is all I want to reveal about INCEPTION’s plot because I do want you all to experience it knowing as little as possible. I went into the screening pretty darn clueless and I’m glad that I did. There are a lot of twists and turns in this flick and it’s definitely best to experience it not knowing what’s around the corner. Trust me, there are A LOT of corners in this film — you know what I mean?

Heads up: The first half hour or so is one big “WTF?!” moment. Stick with it, because it all leads to many great epiphanies as the movie progresses. There is a method to the madness.

Mr. Nolan, yet again, has put together a nice cast. All do an excellent job in their respective roles and mesh well together as an ensemble. Two of the supporting cast members particularly shined — Joseph Gordon Levitt as “Arthur” and Tom Hardy as “Earns.” I won’t go as far as to say that the pair steal the movie, but…well…they did sort of stand out to say the least.

Marion Cotillard? Fantastic. If it’s possible to hate/like/feel sorry for someone all at once, she makes it happen. (Selina Kyle, anyone?)

As far as the top-billed Leonardo DiCaprio, if you‘ve seen any of his other films (perhaps WHAT’S EATING GILBERT GRAPE excluded), that’s what you’re getting here. I certainly wouldn’t say I dislike DiCaprio , but I‘m no big-time fan of his either. I simply don’t find him “chameleon-enough” for my liking. Regardless, he does nothing here that will change the opinion of Leo haters or fans. A petty nitpick that ultimately doesn’t affect my overall opinion of this film. But hey, the dude’s getting big-time top billing here, so I figured I should call it like I see it with him.

As far as behind the camera, I’ve got to send props out to the following folks and their respective crews: cinematographer Wally Pfister, special effects supervisor Chris Corbould, and composer Hans Zimmer.

The “look” of the film is tremendous thanks to Pfister. This guy’s one of the best in the business and his work on INCEPTION proves it. When it comes to “Team Corbould,” I’m sure that Chris asked for the impossible yet again, and as always, they deliver. And Zimmer’s score is pretty much a character in the film itself.

INCEPTION is a film that Nolan has been thinking about and developing for ten years. I’m sure greenlighting a filmmaker’s personal pet project and giving it a prime Summer release date would be considered a huge gamble for any studio. Did THE DARK KNIGHT’s success and having Nolan ultimately helm a third BATMAN play a role in such a decision? Perhaps, but it really doesn’t matter because this is one damn good movie.  (source)
