The dream is real…probably. I don’t know. Call it the Matrix gone analog. Arguably the best movie in the last 10 years.

Cobb is an extractor. A person who steals information in your mind while you are dreaming. He’s the best out there. But he has some baggage himself.

How is the beautiful Marion Cotillard the villain? She is Mal, wife of Cobb. She’s the baggage Cobb can not let go of. Trapped in section of his mind.

Like in this scene, where Mal enters the dream of Saito to interfere with Cobb’s work.

Miles is Cobb’s father-in-law, Mal’s father. A professor at the university. One of the few characters in the real world. He understands what Cobb does for a living as he was once an architect of dreams himself. Cobb asks his help to find a new architect.

Ariadne is the young new architect in Cobb’s team. Quick learner but emotional. She tries to help Cobb with his issues about Mal.

Cobb then enlists the help of a forger named Eames for their special dream project, Inception.

Cobb tries on a sedative concocted by a chemist named Yusuf (not in picture) to create induced dreaming. A sedative so powerful that if you die in the dream while on it, you go into limbo. Which is not good. You might be wandering why Saito is in this picture? He’s the one who hired them to do an inception.

Arthur is the point man. He’s usually in charge of everything while in the dream.

The Mark, Robert Fischer, Jr. This is were inception begins. The team will insert an idea into his mind to alter the future. Four levels of dream. Insane!

The Dream Team assembles in the first level of Fischer’s dream.

Review:

148 minutes of thinking, awesome visuals and what’s happening next. Keep your eyes open, ears clear and mind everywhere. Christopher Nolan is fast becoming my favorite director, next to the great Martin Scorsese.

Verdict:

Watch it at least thrice and own a DVD when it’s out.
