Well so far the summer of 2010 has been a giant snooze-fest. Filled with remake after remake Inception was the breath of fresh air I was waiting for. I have not been impacted buy a movie this way in a very long time. I know people keep using the Matrix as an example, but realistically its the only movie that has ever hit me in such a way that Inception did on the first viewing.
Inception does what many other movies wish they could do. It engages it audience not only on by making them think but also is a visual beauty. All the acting was top-notch(Joseph Gordan Levitt just looking like he had a blast). Christopher Nolan just seems to mature with each movie he makes and this is definitely his masterpiece.
I can not recommend this movie enough. I have always said you know you have seen a great movie when a week after you are still discussing it and obsessing over it. This is a movie that will be brought up for years to come and sets the bar extremely high for creativity in the future of film making. Hopefully other directors will follow suite and decide to challenge people rather than spoon feeding everyone.
