If you watched this movie then you could agree on me that Inception is a type of movie that tries to spin your head while trying to explain how it's spinning in your head.

Inception is mind-blowing in a way that the film is focusing on dream and its dimensions. The plot of Inception is that DiCarpio assembled a team so they can go inside the mind of a businessman through his dream so he can go home.
