Inception (2010)

Glorious poppycock! Christopher Nolan’s most satisfying film to date and a thrilling rollercoaster ride. Nolan’s loopily clever conceit about a team that infiltrates dreams in order to extract secrets and information defies all logic but Nolan is smart enough to keep the action going at a breathtaking (literally) pace that you don’t have the time to dissect it nor do you want to. It lacks the pretentiousness of MEMENTO and the pomposity of BATMAN BEGINS and is crammed with a kinetic pop a minute rat-tat-tat technique that keeps you riveted as each twist and turn shakes you up. In all the razzle dazzle, there’s even time for Leonardo DiCaprio to give yet another solid performance. The huge cast includes Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Ellen Page, Michael Caine, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger and Pete Postlethwaite and I’ll be damned if even the dreaded Hans Zimmer doesn’t rise to the occasion. Let‘s just hope the fanboys don‘t get a hold of it and start analyzing it to death and turn it into another MATRIX!
