I don't even know where to begin!
"Inception" is Christopher Nolan's magnum opus. I loved this film from start to finish. For me, it truly turned the notion of what a summer
"blockbuster" should look and feel like on it's head. It's total lack of the use of gratuitous sex scenes, naked bodies and insipid, rancid
dialogue that permeates most summer fare was a incredibly welcome relief. After one viewing (of many, I'm sure), for me, this is already one of the
best sci-fi-noir (if I may use the term) films I've ever seen. To be sure, it draws on inspiration from The Matrix (a perennial favourite here on
ATS!) and, to some degree, themes from one of Nolan's previous films, "Memento", only on a much grander scale. Half way into "Inception", I had
the feeling that I was watching the birth of a classic. Lets' just say that I rarely (and I mean RARELY) get that feeling for a movie upon the first
viewing; especially a movie with so many layers, fast moving dialogue and plot subtleties.
For those of you into the entire numerology thing, there was even a few scenes involving repeating numbers. How many of you caught it? Personally, I
caught it by about the 3rd reference, and spent the rest of the movie (which even at 2.5 hours, flew by for me) watching for it. I wasn't
disappointed. I'm still trying to figure out the significance of 528-491, but either way, considering the content we regularly discuss here on ATS,
it was intriguing, to say the least.
Anyway, enough of my gushing! Go see it and please post your thoughts.
It's truly right up our alley!
Star and flag for you, OP. You beat me to it (shakes fist!), but as long as it's being discussed, I'm happy!
