Inception by Christopher Nolan
Inception: The Movie
I just watched Inception on cable. It was written by Christopher Nolan who is also responsible fro Person of Interest. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Micheal Cain and Ellen Paige.
As a Science Fiction Movie it was fantastic but you would have to be current in Neuroscience to appreciate how much reality is in this movie. The fundamental premise of the Movie is that a corporate spy has to plant an idea in a businessman’s mind in order to be allowed to return home. But there is a catch they have to do it in very deep sedation so if they are killed in the dream they go to purgatory.
This film has some really advanced sophisticated themes. What is clear is that the person who has had an idea planted into his head is Leonardo DiCaprio’s character and it is to save himself from a miserable existence. And in the end one has to wonder if the dream world is preferable to reality if reality is the nightmare. I would submit that al the characters are actual members of DiCaprio’s character or defense mechanisms which protect him from the very painful reality and put into a deeper dream state.
This is only my take on this film and I could probably get a note tomorrow from the writer Mr. Christopher Nolan telling me my analysis is completely wrong.
I highly recommend this movie as it is well written well acted and has many seeds of Science interwoven within the fiction.
