Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a thief. But not any thief – he steals ideas out of people’s heads by invading their dreams. One day, he gets drafted by the business man Saito (Ken Watanabe), but not to steal an idea; he’s supposed to plant one in the head of Robert Fischer (Cillian Murphy).
Since there’s no such thing as flawless, one of these days Christopher Nolan is bound to make a godawful movie and then it’s probably going to kill me. But until then I can enjoy the masterpieces Nolan continuously produces – and Inception is definitely the best of his films yet.
As can be expected from a cast of this caliber, they were absolutely stunning. Everybody was great and they worked well as a team, but I was especially impressed by Leonardo DiCaprio and Cillian Murphy.
The plot, the whole world building was mind-blowing. I haven’t felt this astonished since… I don’t know… probably since I saw the first Matrix movie for the first time. [Dear Christopher Nolan, a word of advise: Never make a sequel to Inception. Just like Matrix has no sequels. Kthxbai.]
And the whole execution… people, we don’t need to talk about the special effects because everybody can see from the trailer that they are terrific. But the soundtrack by Hans Zimmer is probably the best thing he’s ever written. And the costum design was absofuckinglutely wonderful.
Of course the movie is not perfect – but then again, which movie is? Inception, at least, comes pretty damn close. And it’s so worth to see and see again and again and again.
Summarising: I don’t think it’s too early to call this film Movie of the Year.
Bonus picture! So many pretty people…
