Essay #27


Yes! I've seen the most EPIC Film of the year! a little synopsis to the movie..

Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in an original sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible—inception.

Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming - taken from film o fillia.


Of course! it by Christopher Nolan, he's known to screw his audiences' minds. always leaving a big question mark in your head at the ending. makes you seriously think and question the whole movie. as for me. i KINDA got it. also because i was watching it with my girlfriend. know lah ;-)

But overall, the acting was great. a great cast! everybody had good chemistry. but Marion Cotillard was a bit off in some scenes, not enough emotion and clarity to project her character for that specific scene. do i sound logical? Anyway, i love it that Nolan is not the type of director who CRAMPS all the action in one. he spreads it out with some cool matrix-like scenes. and overall it's pretty damn EPIC. effects were so good.
