I am a HUGE Christopher Nolan fan. He is an amazing filmmaker. He hooked me with his thrilling “Memento” and hasn’t let up since. Every movie of his is good, from “Following” to his most recent and brilliant masterpiece “The Dark Knight.” I can go on for a whole post about how perfect his incarnation of Batman is (and I probably will soon). It stands to reason then that I am about to wet myself for his next movie, entitled “Inception.”
IMDB’s description goes as follows:
Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in an original sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved.
Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossibleinception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming. This summer, your mind is the scene of the crime.
The movie sounds amazing. The trailer even more so. I happen to have it right here.
