Inception : Nolan Does It Again
Woaah.......watta movie..... Another masterpiece from Christopher Nolan , who is churning out masterpieces one after the other, makes one really look upto him in awe. With nearly 100% track record in terms of creativity and box office response he is surely going to become the most sought after director of this decade.
Coming to the movie its a beautiful mindbender. A true successor to the "The Matrix" genre of movies ( for which I required 3 complete viewings to understand the concept:P). Story begins with Cobb(Dicaprio) , a high profile robber of dreams/thoughts, able to extract any details from a given persons head. But his latest assignment is a actually to implant a dream into a energy heir's head so that he liquidizes all his fathers multi-billion dollar industries. Now this is just the beginning. With the story developing superbly along the way and little twists and surprises enroute. The special effects are mindblowing not just with their quality but for the creativity and visualization of such sequences entirely unseen in cinema's before. My favourite is the gravity defying combat scene involving Gordon-Lewitt and some other goons.... simply beautiful :)
Even though I mentioned this to be a mindbender , it is one of those movies which you have complete hopes to understand atleast after a couple of viewings. Not like complete abstract movies like Mullohand Drive or Lost Highway where we cant make out where the head and the tail of the movie is. My rating is a solid 5/5. A movie not to be missed.
In terms of his other movies this can be said to be his best work.
2. The Prestige
4. The Dark Knight
5. Batman Begins
If the multiplex guys had given some offer like buy one and get 50% off for the next show , there surely would have been takers including me. Surely this requires a second viewing to understand and appreciate it completely.
Waiting for the next Batman masterpiece from "Nolan the Great".
