Movie #62 - Inception

Day #62

Smart, Intellectual, Emotional, Riveting, Thrilling and above all ... Genius! These are the words that best describe -- Inception,

Christopher Nolan (writer, co-producer and director) who has proved himself time and again with his brand of movies, once again presented the world with one of the most unusual movies of our time; a movie about dreams and ... thieves! He uses this movie to explore the labyrinth of the mind in an unconscious state and elaborates on its capabilities.

Then to the technical department, the guys that picked four Academy Awards for their efforts were astounding; the special effects literally invigorated the movie, coupled with the cinematography which certainly pulled us into a state where we begin to question reality.

Finally, the cast -- you've got Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine and Marion Cotillard -- who really brought this project to life with their performances; especially DiCaprio whose role as a deeply (emotionally) wounded hero was fantastic.

This 2010 blockbuster was both a critical and box office hit; But it's the final shot of the movie that shows Nolan's genius. A true intellectual Masterpiece.

FYI - Joseph Gordon-Levitt's outfits were sweet!
