Inception is further proof that Christopher Nolan is a narrative genius. Is it a heist movie? A tale of redemption? A state-of-the-art action movie? A spell-binding sci-fi film? A psychological thriller? Or maybe a stylish film noir? Well, in essence, it’s all of the above and then some.
With Inception, Nolan delivers a film that consists of layers upon layers. A nuanced representation that is as deep and intricate as the very subject matter he attacks: the examination of dreams, reality and the human psyche. It’s a film that exercises the mind and the eyes all at the same time, in equal measure. One that will leave your jaw on the floor and the gears in your head spinning double-time by time the end credits roll.
