Voir Un Film: Inception
Directed by Christopher Nolan
"Your mind is the scene of the crime."
Why has no one ever thought to make a movie about dreams before? It seems such an obvious choice for an intriguing, yet also action-packed, story that everyone can relate to.
Inception has set precedent for a new type of film-- something that offers the audience a more intellectual selection in place of the common, vulgar film.
Dom Cobb (DiCaprio) is a thief... who steals people's secrets in their subconscious. He is the best at what he does, until an experience with his wife, Mal (Marion Cotillard), interferes with his work. Cobb has worked out a deal with corporate executive, Saito (Ken Watanabe), to grant him entry back into the United States to go back to his children. However, Cobb must complete a mission to eliminate Saito's business competition involving the idea of "inception."
"Inception" is supposedly an impossible concept-- planting an idea in someone's mind in three levels: a dream, within a dream, within a dream. The process takes 10 hours and if killed during any of these dreams, will be condemned to wander in limbo.
At the end of this exciting journey inside the mind, you realize that boundary between what is real and what is fiction is not so clear as you may have thought before.
