Inception - Thoughts & Reflections

I guess everybody would have written about this flick by now. What can i say new about this? As like everybody, I am no exception. I was drawn by the charm which Nolan created once again.

Christopher Nolan with his own story after his debut "Following", shows the world why he is smarter than others.When James Cameroon spent 10 years in creating a technical marvel, Nolan beleived his brain. He too created a marvel, may be not in the technical side, but with his true script.

Inception is a spiritual journey where Nolan is the god and we are the disciples. One thing where Nolan scores more than any other director of our time is the way he narrates the story. We don't have enough time to think.You need a second viewing for sure, to truly appreciate the nuances he has put in the flick.

As somebody rightly said, Inception is not immune to spoilers. You can't tell the story without revelaing the story. In a nut shell, its a story about planting an idea in one's mind through his dreams. Having said, its not so easy. The design they create , the perfect execution, the haunting background score, the slick editing, amazing camera work and last but not the least the fiendishly clever script makes it a master piece.

If Matrix is the best sci fi film made in the last decade, then Inception is the one for next few decades. On a whole, Nolan's movies may seem like a movie with lot of technical finesse and some great twists which qualify for a decent thriller. However all his movies, on its bare bones have an emotional underlying story why his protagonist wants to do that. And that justification, makes him a genius. Take a bow Sir.

As an ending note, please stop reading the spoilers. Its no bad if you missed something. I watched twice still i have a book of unanswered questions. I will watch it again. If you are reading the spoilers, you are not thinking smart enough. In the era of just teen comedy, meaningless sequels and millions of dollars spent on blowing up buildings, Inception wins hands down as a summer blockbuster and a perfect movie to test your acumen. To sum up, Inception - Mind-bending Visual Spectacle.
