In 2008, there was outrage that Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight didn’t win any major Oscars. The film had some excellent acting, an original, brain-teasing plot and some fantastic action sequences. People overlooked the fact that it was recycled characters and how long it was because it kick started Nolan’s career as a well-known writer, producer and director. And while it didn’t win any Academy Awards (except Best Supporting Actor for Heath Ledger), it was critically acclaimed as a brilliant film. Because of this, Warner Bros. gave Nolan full reign to do whatever he wanted. Which brings us to Inception.
