Inception

I saw the new movie "Inception" last evening on its first day of general release. I guess you could say I saw "Inception" at its inception. This is a "Titanic" movie that many film critics are calling the best movie of the 21st century so catch it if you can. This movie is no day at the beach and is a sci-fi psychological thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, and many other fine actors who become involved in multi-layered dream worlds with spectacular special effects as the characters depart the everyday conscious world like an aviator and project themselves through different dream realities as they are hired to try to plant an idea into the head of the heir of a multi-billionaire.

Directed by Christopher Nolan, who also directed "The Dark Knight" and "Memento"; "Inception" is a fast paced roller coaster ride of a movie that is somewhat similar to "The Matrix". The dream within a dream within a dream action make you wonder at times what actions are real and what actions take place in the dream worlds right up to the end of the movie where the audience is left with a scene that can be interpreted in a couple of ways. Check this movie out and see if you agree with some of the critics who have called "Inception" the front runner for "Best Picture".
