Movie Reviews for the people, by the people...
Christopher Nolan (Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Prestige) reportedly spent ten years writing his screenplay for Inception. Watching the film, I appreciated, not for the first time, not only Nolan’s craftsmanship as a filmmaker, but the level of thought that goes into a plot like this. Some will no doubt call Inception confusing. It definitely is not a movie where you can take a trip to the restroom, and requires a commitment of close and careful attention and concentration, but I don’t see that as a bad thing. Generic shoot-em-up action thrillers where you can check your brain at the door are a dime a dozen, but Nolan has never been content with generic. He makes movies that give himself a challenge, and challenge the audience to pay attention, but the pay-off is worth the effort.|
