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.

      Hi viking305,

      Lenoardo is great in this film by so is the rest of the cast. I just have to mention that Nolan is a master. If you haven't seen Inception you can still catch Person of Interest tonight on CBS at 9pm.

      I love movies with this kind of science fiction idea. Have not seen this yet but it sounds great. Leonardo is a great actor too so that is a bonus. Thanks for the review

      Hi Jivis,

      I agree Inception is a great movie. I also eagerly await The Dark Knight Rises but in the interim I am going to watch Person of Interest which is also written by Christopher Nolan.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and taking the time to provide feedback. Your contribution is valued.
