I am trying to make sure with that title that everyone knows that my review of Inception will be using some harsh language, as well as some adult themes and comparisons. I am saying all of this ahead of time so that nobody is surprised or offended when they begin to read such vulgarities in this review. And in case you couldn't tell, I am running this on for the same purposes; so that such things are not read for a while, thus making it very clear that when you do read them., you are willing and able. Are ya ready? Good. Cuz Inception mind-fucked me for 2 1/2 hours.
There is really no other way to put it. My mind was grabbed by Christopher Nolan, and he repeatedly thrusted his movie in and out of my head for two hours and twenty-eight minutes. And I enjoyed every minute of it. I think. I have not felt this way about a movie since the first Matrix. By movie's end, I'm pretty sure I understood everything that they were telling me, but I am completely in awe at it's concept and presentation. I found this movie to be amazing.
Inception is the story of some guys (DiCaprio and Gordan-Levitt and others) who enter one's Dream-Scape and steal information. They are then hired by Ken Wantanabe to try and plant a memory, a concept coincidentally called inception. The next two hours is this team of "dream rovers" coming up with the elaborate task of how to plant a memory into someone's head while making them think it was their idea the whole time (which if you can't do, they know that somebody else told them to think it. Example: Don't look down. What do you now do? You look down. But you know the idea of looking down wasn't yours). In order to do this, they come up with the mind-fucking idea of opening up a dream within a dream within a dream. Which is about when Nolan starts taking his pants down to start thrusting.
I cannot wait to watch this movie again if for nothing else than to just make sure I did understand it. But my initial reaction is to say that I was blown away by this movie. For me, this movie once again proves why (not counting The Prestige) Nolan is a master story-teller. Go see this movie. But bring some kind of protection in just in case Nolan doesn't pull out fast enough for ya.
