When my favourite Director and one of my favourite actors come together, wow I couldn’t wait. I was jealous when Renu put up a review before me.
Inception, blew away my mind. It was a total awesome flick. I may be saying the same thing what everyone has been saying but I have to say it again to pay tribute to Chris Nolan. I’ve followed Chris’s works except ‘The Following’ and I can confirm the fact that Chris Nolan is obsessed with Minds. Yes! In memento he took us through the mind of a man suffering from short-term-memory-loss. Then he took us through the mind of an Insomniac police officer in Insomnia. Then he showed what a mad psychopath can do to a city ” with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets” in Dark Knight.
The script, like all of his other movies is really complicated. But its not that bad like some of them say. The greatest aspect about the movie is it keeps you hooked. I found myself sitting at the edge of my seat when the movie was over. It is a new world altogether. A whole new world of dreams, mind and sub-conscious. The movie introduces us to new world very gradually and neatly. As the movie goes more rules get revealed about this world. The complexity keeps increasing. And its ultra super fast like Dark Knight. I’m still at awe how such a concept could be materialised on screen so wonderfully. Some of the sequences are so brilliant both technically and conceptually.
How much can you tell in a movie of 148 mins? A lot !! To add to the complexity of the movie, we have Hans Zimmer’s awesome music. Man. Dark Knight was just one note. But this one so intense, so exhilarating. Woah!!
You will have a lot of adrenaline rush at various occasions through the movie. And in the end you will have a lot more to take back home besides the pure awesomeness of the movie. The climax was more than I could handle. I wont say more now. Watch it. Its gonna be an experience you will take time to recover from.
The movie is calling me back. There are a lot of dimensions about the movie I need to digest.
Idea is not the greatest resilient parasite. Inception has surely infected my mind!!!
