Overview

Visionary filmmaker Christopher Nolan Memento, The Dark Knight writes and directs this psychological sci-fi action film about a thief who possesses the power to enter into the dreams of others. Dom Cobb Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't steal things, he steals ideas. By projecting himself deep into the subconscious of his targets, he can glean information that even the best computer hackers can't get to. In the world of corporate espionage, Cobb is the ultimate weapon. But even weapons have their weakness, and when Cobb loses everything, he's forced to embark on one final mission in a desperate quest for redemption. This time, Cobb won't be harvesting an idea, but sowing one. Should he and his team of specialists succeed, they will have discovered a new frontier in the art of psychic espionage. They've planned everything to perfection, and they have all the tools to get the job done. Their mission is complicated, however, by the sudden appearance of a malevolent foe that seems to know exactly what they're up to, and precisely how to stop them.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Directors have been trying to replicate the world of dreams since the beginning of cinema, and acknowledged masters like Buñuel and David Lynch became renowned for their ability to visually articulate the subconscious mind. With his ingeniously inventive psychological thriller Inception, Christopher Nolan stakes his claim on this ambitious cinematic territory. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Dom Cobb, a thief who, with the help of his partner Arthur Joseph Gordon-Levitt, steals information from victims' dreams while they sleep. After a rare failure on his most recent corporate espionage job, their intended mark, Saito Ken Watanabe, makes Dom an offer he can't refuse. Turns out our main character has legal problems stemming from his wife's death that prevent Dom from returning to the United States to see his children. The rich and powerful Saito offers to wipe away those troubles if Dom will, instead of stealing an idea from a particular business competitor, put an idea into the man's mind. Most believe this task, known as "inception," isn't possible, but Dom knows from personal history that he can do it. Aside from putting together the right team to get the job done, Dom's biggest obstacle is his deceased wife, Mal Marion Cotillard. More precisely, it's his memories of her, because when he goes into people's dreams he brings his own subconscious with him, and Dom's projections of Mal constantly undermine his efforts. One of the most striking aspects of Inception is that it looks like a big-budget special-effects spectacle, but it sounds like a talky art film -- it's an ambitious combination of something like Dreamscape and Last Year at Marienbad, but with a somber tone. Revealing much more about the plot would be unkind because learning Nolan's rules for traveling through other people's subconscious is most of the fun. For a movie so dependent on exposition -- traditionally the most boring element of any story -- Inception skillfully though not always gracefully makes it work. Nolan keeps us off-balance with both the visuals and the storytelling so that we will listen closely when the characters explain various intricacies -- like how to force themselves awake out of a dream within a dream within a dream. Half the reason a director casts a powerful figure like DiCaprio is to help the viewer through all the information. Sure, DiCaprio has the chops to play a haunted man with magnetic vulnerability -- much as he did in Shutter Island -- and Inception is another chance to appreciate why he's on the short list of genuine movie stars. But his engaging presence also helps sell the movie's insanely intricate plot developments; since Cobb always seems like he knows exactly what's going on, we trust that it all makes sense. And what exactly makes sense is an unavoidable question throughout Inception. Nowhere do we suspend disbelief as readily, willingly, and automatically as when we dream, but Inception comes uncannily close to grabbing us just as authoritatively. Because of that, it makes complete and total sense while it's playing, but upon reflection the gaping logical holes are too numerous to list here. Logic isn't what matters most in Inception, though. For all the detailed talk about mazes and architecture and chemistry and neuroscience, the movie is most concerned not with the brain but with the heart. Like The Prestige, Nolan gives viewers an ending that is open-ended enough that you could read the film in various ways, and how you react to the movie will tell you more about yourself than it will about Nolan. But that's true of dreams as well, because interpretations of dreams mean far more than experiencing them. Nolan has given us a dream we can share -- a puzzle to dissect, debate, and ponder -- and odds are strong that the conversations Inception inspires will end up being just as interesting as the movie itself.

    Best movie i have ever seen!

    This movie approaches perfection! I loved every moment of it, all it takes is a little attention. The Movie is complex but that makes it so much better. Inception is packed with one of the most enjoyable movie experiences i have ever had. The number one movie of the decade, hands down. Check it out for yourself.

    One of the Best Movies of the Year

    Inception takes you on a roller coaster of the senses. Everything about this movie is incredible. The plot always stays two steps ahead of you, but that is part of the beauty of the story: you are just along for the ride.
    After seeing it in theaters, Inception quickly became one of my favorite movies. I am anxiously awaiting the release of the DVD.

    Another Christopher Nolan Masterpiece

    You have to see it to understand it--there's no way to describe it. I'll just say this: it is a MUST SEE film. One of the best films ever made.

    Had to have it.

    This is a movie with such a complex plot that you'll never tire after seeing it several times. New nuances surface and you can delve deeper into the storyline and characters. DiCaprio is serious and well cast. A good one to own and have in your library.

    Thought Provoking

    The movie is everything I expected it to be: complicated and filled with action. This is not a movie where you can space out in the middle of it. It deserves your total attention.

    A Mind-Bending Classic!

    When I first watched this film, it kept me constantly guessing what was real and what was a dream. It kept me at the edge of my seat when they were executing the operation in their victim's mind. Leonardo DiCaprio was just as good and actor in this film as he was in The Departed. In many ways this movie reminded me of the Matrix because they left reality and entered a world that exists in the mind. I would highly recommend this item to anyone who enjoys a good psychological thriller.

    Surprising

    Having heard everyone's ravings abut this movie, I expected to be disappointed. I most definitely was not! The setting was great, the action fascinating, and the plot, riveting. It is that great treasure: a movie that makes you think while entertaining. I would highly recommend that you give this movie a shot. I love it!

    One of the best movies I've seen in a long time.

    Cobb and his team have one last job to do that involves planting an idea in someone else's head, through their dreams. The music was great as the performances by all the characters. Especially Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and of course Joseph Gordon Levitt. That fight scene at the hotel was awesome. Even the directing and editing was done really well. First time I watched the movie, I got what was going on. Then after watching it again, I understood it more. You know? It's one of those movies that you got to see again. But it's worth it. Lately there been movies that are either a remake, a sequel, or based on a book. With Inception it's neither but a great movie and a new favorite for me.
