So I saw Inception
. And as most of you probably don't know, because I haven't talked about it, I was really excited for this movie. Really Excited. I've been following this thing since Chris Nolan announced a project to follow The Dark Knight
. And when I found out it had Michael Caine, Cillian Murphy, Marion Cotillard, and Ken Watanabe in it (not to mention Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ellen Page) I knew I was seeing it in the theaters. Then it turns out that it was about dreams and reality and twistiness and I stopped following it. Not because I grew unexcited, for those who know me well know that I love mind-bending stories, but because I didn't want to go into the film being spoiled for anything. Long story short, I'm so glad I did. I loved it. Absolutely loved it. I think anything else I could say would be a spoiler except that Cillian Murphy is one of my favorite actors of all time and he turns on my emotional response like no one else. And that Marion Cotillard is divine and I need to see more of her films. ( Spoilers )
I thoroughly recommend this film. Don't read reviews, just go see it if you liked The Prestige
or Pan's Labyrinth
or other mind-bending magical realism flicks. Or if you like pretty people trying to pull off heists. Mmmmm....suits and pinstripes. There were very many attractive people (but mostly men) in this film. Cillian Murphy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in particular. If you think you might want to see it, then yes. Yes you do.
