Inception - 2010

Director: Christopher Nolan
Writers: Christopher Nolan
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Ken Watanabe, Cilian Murphy
"What's the most resilient parasite? An idea. A single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can transform the world and rewrite all the rules." Christopher Nolan's latest psychological thriller follows Cobb (DiCaprio), a man who has spent his life honing his ability to steal information from dreams of others, given the seemingly impossible task of inserting an idea into the subconscious, rather than withdrawing one.
With seven feature films to his name so far, Christopher Nolan has proven himself to be one of a small handful of writer/directors who is incapable of making not only a supbar film, but anything less than mindblowing. The cast aside (who are all great, aside from Watanabe's sometimes hard to understand lines), this film's true strength lies in Nolan's multilayered script. While not for the faint of mind (I personally plan to see it again to 100% understand it), this is definitely not a film to be missed, and will hopefully get some legitimate Oscar nominations.
