Intelligent. Original. Blockbuster. Those are three adjectives NOT usually used to describe one movie. Chris Nolan has created an anomaly–an entertaining, action-packed, smart, character driven success–that became the topic of much discussion and debate.
I experienced one of my favorite cinematic moments. We were lucky to get into a sneak preview and it was a packed. It was obvious that we were all in the Inception zone and as Hans Zimmer’s score soared during the last scene, you could feel the tension in the air. When the last shot cuts to black , as if on cue, everyone GASPED! At the same time! Wow. Immediately, there was murmurings and a few choice words. 🙂 As we exited the theater all you could hear were theories and announcements that it had to be watched again.
I watched it 5 times and each time I saw something new and solidified my set of theories. All I will say is that, “It falls!” 🙂
All the elements work. The cast–incredible. The story–compelling. The score–haunting. The action–unique. There is nothing out-of-place. A true modern classic and the world seems to agree. Isn’t that nice for a change?
