INCEPTION by Christopher Nolan

inception - embitterment level - disappointment level
Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is an expert in the art of extraction – he steals information from the mind of his victims while they are dreaming. His latest customer is Mr. Saito (Ken Watanabe), who claims he is able to clear Cobb of the murder charges for his wife’s (Marion Cotillard) death, so he can re-enter the United States and meet his children again after years on the run. But Mr. Saito doesn’t want Cobb to simply steal information. He shall plant an idea into the mind of his business competitor’s son (Cillian Murphy). This procedure is known as inception, and is supposed to be not only much more difficult than extraction, but almost impossible to perform.

Dreams within dreams within dreams. A cleverly constructed, convoluted script, fantastic pictures and a stellar cast with Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Ken Wanatabe, Cillian Murphy, Pete Postlethwaite, Michael Caine and others, mixed with some philosophical thoughts about reality, spiced with top-notch action sequences make Inception one of the movies of 2010 you shouldn’t miss.
**** SPOILER ALERT ****
One star short of five because it is too perfect, too constructed and missing real emotional depth. And then there is the ending. I am not against open ends in general, but with Inception, i felt slightly cheated. It seems a bit lazy to leave the audience guessing. Or is it Nolan wanting to create his very own Blade Runner-style riddle? Thirty years after the original release audiences are still discussing if Deckard was a replicant or not. Time will tell if after thirty years moviegoers will still ask “was it all a dream within a dream and was Leo in limbo all the time?”.
