Inception (2010)


Leonardo DiCaprio
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Marion Cotillard

Directed by Christopher Nolan

Inception is like a chess game and with two players, the dream thieves and the dream owner. Inception is just one of a kind, and the way the movie plays out reminds why Christopher Nolan (Memento (2000) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012)) will be remembered as one of the best movie makers out there.
Inception’s cinematography and special effects will definitely wow you, the way the story plays out will also make you sit up and never wish to blink as you fear you will miss something.

Classic as it is, funny enough it didn’t win the Best Picture in the 83rd Academy Award losing out to The Kings Speech, that year. I have to give kudos to the directing and the writing (which were done by Christopher Nolan himself) when I was watching this film I knew we were looking at an advance world.
I knew “Dream Extraction” was being done and the excitement didn’t make me care about any loose ends all I cared about is how this film is going to play out.

The movie starts with the introduction of our key players in the business of dream extraction and they are led by Leonardo DiCaprio, with him in this movie is Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, and Michael Caine. DiCaprio plays Dom Cobb, a thief who commits corporate espionage by infiltrating the subconscious of his targets. 

Cobb has been unable to go home to his family, so when he is offered a chance to regain his old life as payment for a task called "inception", where he and his crew will plant an idea into someone subconscious, the task was deemed impossible but Cobb said it could be done so he and his crew took it on.

As far as acting goes, no one will say Leonardo DiCaprio is not up to the task as his acting and the professionalism he brought to the movie just stands out, that takes nothing away from his co actors as this well ensemble crowd around him held their own.

Nolan choose to end the movie in a way that the viewer will be left to wonder, if all he saw was real or just another dream.

So if you are like me, and you know that Nolan is just too good a movie maker for you not to take a shot at this, then what are you waiting for? If you have not seen Inception in this century then you have not seen one of the best thrillers to hit the silver screen.
