Inception is the latest movie from director Christopher Nolan. Having proven his skill at twisting narrative in Memento and creating a dark and breath taking setting for Batman in The Dark Knight, Nolan storms the cinema with this tale of dream inception. Hans Zimmer provides a resonating soundtrack that cleverly interweaves into the story and does not merely act as a backdrop. Visually stunning with some very good casting, especially Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Third Rock from the Sun) and Ellen Page (Juno) who show promise to become rapidly rising stars. To be honest the whole cast stand out and have you rooting for all of them equally. Lighter relief is provided by Tom Hardy and Dileep Rao who again put in strong performances. I'm just thankful that Pete Postlethwaite didn't have a bigger role (why does he turn up everywhere these days?).
All in all, go to the cinema with your mind open and try not to worry too much about the first 20 minutes, it may not make sense straight away but wait and you'll be rewarded. I waited until the end to listen to the soundtrack; if you do too you may notice something. If you do, go home and listen to Non, je ne regrette rien and then slow it down and listen again...I plan on watching again.
