Inception

Let’s just face it, 2010 has had some great movies: Shutter Island, Toy Story 3, and even some surprises –Karate Kid. No one expected that movie to be good. But, Christopher Nolan’s Inception took the first page in my book.

Imagine, just for a brief of the second, some futuristic world where people can transmit themselves into peoples’ dreams to extract information from those dreams and plant an idea. Leonardo DiCaprio is a thief with uncommon ability to enter someone’s dream and steal their secrets. This movie has everything: the acting is excellent, screenplay, sound production, visual effects, Christopher Nolan spent almost ten years writing this story and it’s perfect.

Okay, let’s get started with the story, and don’t worry – no spoiler alert, because the movie is basically immune to spoilers. If you knew how it ended it’s meaningless unless you know how the story got there. So, Leonardo DiCaprio has his business team (Joseph Gordon – Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy) and their job is to fight through the cover of reality and dream, reality within a dream. For the movie viewer, it’s a “time struggle”, because we are never quite sure what the correlation between real-time and dream time is. One of the main stars in the movie explains that you can never remember the begging of a dream and how it got at the moment your consciousness realizes some action is happening, and that dreams that seem to last for hours may actually last for a few minutes. Also, when you’re dreaming you’re never quite sure if it’s a dream because it feels like reality.

Leonardo DiCaprio is hired by the powerful billionaire (Ken Watanabe) to plant an idea into his rival’s mind (Cillian Murphy), and he needs do to it so well that Murphy believes it is his own. And it’s impossible, it has never been done before. So, DiCaprio gathers his team of skilled and talented people who are going to try to plant an idea. So, let’s talk a little bit about this team of skilled and talented people, and their roles. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Arthur) is DiCaprio’s longtime associate, his “right hand” in missions and also his friend. Tom Hardy (Eames) is a master at deception. And last to join the team was Ellen Page (Ariadne), a smart young architect who is a prodigy at creating space. The mission is to create a dream within a dream within a dream and plant an idea in Murphy’s mind, entirely different and far more dangerous procedure that can leave them trapped in their victim mind. And because the movie being an action thriller, it’s not really hard to say that things don’t go exactly according to plan. Now, many people complained that the movie is confusing, but this movie requires paying attention, because it’s not predictable.

“Inception is truly a one of a kind experience and amazing accomplishments of Christopher Nolan. Even if the movie is complex he never fails to entertain us, telling an exciting story with great characters we care about, even if they are the bad guys.”
