Christopher Nolan is a director who has a very genius idea through his films. Call it like Memento that makes the audience play his mind because of this movie. If Memento is a film that has a very genius idea, then Inception will also say that. Back in 2010, that year was indeed filled with really cool movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Black Swan, Shutter Island, Despicable Me, and Toy Story 3. That year was filled with a lot of really cool movies, especially Inception that brought its audience with a very different experience compared to other films.
“Inception,” tells about a shrewd thief named Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) who always performs his actions in the subconscious of a dream person. Together with his partner Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), they enter a state of mind when the person is in a dream. This ability is often referred to as extraction. Because of their action, Saito (Ken Watanabe) is amazed because of Cobb’s ability and provide a more tough task that is to instill an idea in a person’s mind or so-called inception.
If by just reading the synopsis may be somewhat difficult to understand because this movie does have the essence of a very important story. In this film is also definitely Leonardo DiCaprio role in this movie let alone he plays here as a dream thief. To watch this movie also required a very high concentration level like watching other thriller films like Memento. Inception is a genius film that is strong evidence to crown Christopher Nolan as the most genius director.
In addition, Nolan is also very meticulous in choosing the actors. Call it like Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, and Tom Hardy. The actors have indeed made the audience amazed by their names. Nothing stands out and nothing is lacking when all the actors play in this movie. All presented so well balanced. Not to mention the special effects that look smooth in it with the soundtrack that makes the audience beat faster.
Overall, although I don’t write much for this movie, you better watch it yourself rather than having to find out what else is in this movie. This is a masterpiece that can be phenomenal, although this movie I also watch twice to be understood. Fans of Christopher Nolan films certainly love this movie, especially for movie fans with a very complicated story in it and the best actors in it.
