‘Inception’ is the new psychological thriller movie written and directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy and Marion Cotillard.
While the mystery and secrecy surrounding the movie had many wondering if it could live up to the hype, the box office and viewers have spoken and spoken loudly. The movie was number 1 at the box office this weekend with over $60 Million and after 39,850 votes on IMDB, the movie has an average rating of 9.3/10.
‘Inception’ is a brilliant movie that will have you thinking and talking long after the movie is done. Amicable and lengthy discussions of the movie will follow all who see it, and not just those who are movie students as people will want to discuss what they saw and what the ending of the movie means. Yes, because ‘Inception,’ like so many other effective psychological thrillers has you wondering what you just saw and what the meaning of it all was.
To tell the story of ‘Inception’ is to tell too much. Suffice it to say that the movie is about dreams and the mind and some people’s ability to share your dreams. Not only is the screenplay brilliant, thought-provoking and deep but the visuals are stunningly unique and innovative. Christopher Nolan is once again showing Hollywood that you can make an aesthetically pleasing movie without using 3-D.
Another neat part of the movie was the homage to Edith Piaf and her music that was used through-out the movie; surely that was done in reverence to Marion Cotillard who played the little sparrow in ‘Le Vie en Rose’? It also made me wonder if that was some sort of clue in this wonderful and complicated movie.
‘Inception’ is a movie with a great cast with Leonardo DiCaprio once again showing why he is a King of Hollywood and I would recommend everyone to go and see this movie, but make sure it’s on a day when you have a clear mind.
