There is something else going on with Inception, though. A quality that many movies lack in this century’s “sequelitis” affliction (yes, Nolan’s Batman films are technically sequels…but they just have a distinct originality that seems to seperate them). Inception is amazing because it is not only designed to entertain audiences, but to also affect their minds – just like magic. Nolan is a master at leaving the audience with a lasting impression; a methodically layered series of thoughts that seem to stay with us long after the final credits roll.
Because Christopher Nolan is a "magician."
