inceptionWhen you fall asleep and dream that you get hurt, the pain feels "real" while you are dreaming. However, when you die in your dreams, you simply wake up.

But is the world of your own subconsciousness really that safe?

Dom Cobb specializes in “Extraction”; stealing secrets from a target’s mind while they are asleep by using an Architect and a Point Man to design and fill a dream world that will make their target reveal real-world secrets. When Saito proposes an offer Cobb could not refuse, he embarks a team to perform an “Inception”; that is, to create new thoughts in the target, which he later accepts as his own idea. He then hires a Chemist and a Forger, but how will he avoid being trapped by the Shade?

There are mostly questions in this review, but that is the only way I can write about this film without revealing too much about the plot. Writer, producer, and director Christopher Nolan did an excellent job with this film that left the audience literally gasping and clapping at the end of the movie. I think this is one of Leonardo DiCaprio’s best work that compares to the Titanic, but of course, that’s just me.

This is a must watch in theaters, but before you do, you might want to read this webcomic which occurs right before the movie. It will give you a better understanding of what’s going on…

Once you have watched the film, however, I want to know: Was the ending real?
