The Inception of Inception; Student Movie Review

KIRSTEN GUTE ’11, BRITTANY VOLCY ’11

———————————-
Inception is a contemporary science- fiction, action packed film set within the architecture of the mind.

Your mind becomes the scene of the crime in a world where technology is used against the mind to then invade the dream. Inception leaves you guessing until the very last second of the film.

As you walk out of the movie you can’t tell if you, yourself have been a victim of inception, that’s just how convincing it is.

Dom Cobb, played by Leonardo Dicaprio, is a skilled thief in the art of stealing important secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state. He is prepared to complete his last assignment which will hopefully free him from the “murder” of his wife he was wrongfully accused for committing.

Cobb’s only way out of this job that has come to haunt him is to successfully pull off a seemingly impossible mission. He must enter a series of dreams, complete them successfully, with the help of his team.

Dreams have different levels the subconscious travels into and each level down his team goes, the more dangerous it becomes. The question everyone asks as they leave is did Cobb complete his mission successfully and get his life back?

The end of the films begs the question of what is an illusion and what is a reality. This a movie that leaves you thinking about the answer hours, days, and weeks after seeing it and even then you want to see it again. It starts conversations and theories are all over the Internet.

The amazing cast includes Leonardo Dicaprio, Joesph Gordon Levitt, Ellen Page, and Marion Cotillard. The film is directed by Christopher Nolan and is a definite must-see!
