An Idea. A single idea from the human mind can do anything. That's what Christopher Nolan (Director) wants to resuscitate us. I'm amazed by Nolan who could always tell such a complicated story so smooth. He has already proved his capability on his previous works, such as: "Batman Begins" (2005), "The Dark Knight" (2008), and sophisticated magician's tale in "The Prestige" (2006). But I prefer to compare thiz one with his earlier masterpiece "Memento" (2000). What he was good at, not just a great story-teller (I think he's the best in our generation) but he always made a brilliant twist and turn in every ending of his stories. "Inception" contains multi layer story-telling which tremendously executed well, precise what we saw on "Memento". "Inception" is simply a bigger scale of "Memento". The story tells how Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his team could invade to people's minds through their dream, and Cobb's job is to steal it, or plant a new one. The supporting Casts were amazing, fills with the heavy-caliber Actors such as: Michael Caine, Joseph-Gordon Levitt, Ken Watanabe and others. In my notes, Dicaprio wasn't better than his performance on "Shutter Island" (2010, early thiz year), but definitely also not a bad one either. Once again, he's success with his script selections and delivers some constant performances. Ellen Page and Cillian Murphy, both of them had just showed their extraordinary performances on "Peacock" (2010). I have to say Murphy brings one of the best performances for overall. But the best appearance is belongs to Marion Cottilard as Cobb's vulnerable wife. The side-story about the dark past of Cobb and his wife draws my attention. The chemistry and that background story were one of the interesting parts from thiz movie. I could easily say, 'The Folding City' and 'Revolving Room' scenes will be one of the memorable moments in cinematic history. Thiz time, Nolan takes us to his dream, where an idea becomes seed of possibility. A great opening, a nice built concept for the main plot and deceitful twist of ending, it's all we needed for new level of ingenious movie. Simply, experience your life through Dream.
