[A watcher’s take]~Inception!! :)

Update<19th July’10>: I watched this movie too this evening…amazing…now will have dreams like never before! 😉 A must watch! 🙂

Inception means two things according to the English dictionary:
1. Taking in or Reception
2. A first part or stage of subsequent events

Inception, the movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Dom Cobb uses both these meanings to present a visual treat which challenges the viewer to differentiate between dreams and the real world. It explores the concept of sharing a dream, wherein you allow another person to access your subconscious mind. But, what if, another person accesses your subconscious without your knowledge or permission, wreaking havoc in your mind and life? That is exactly Dom’s job – to extract sensitive information from unsuspecting people such as the combination of their safe, their secrets etc.

Only problem being Dom himself is in trouble, being chased by various agencies who are out to get him for a failed mission and his own personal demons where his subconscious is filled with his projection of his dead wife Mal (played by Marion Cotillard) and the guilt of having to stay away from his 2 young children.

The only way he can get out of his troubles and return to his children is by completing one last mission. The heir to a top multinational conglomerate must be persuaded to break down the empire built by his dying father and if successful, all charges against Dom will be dropped. Dom accepts the task and assembles a team of 6 to perform an inception on the heir. The result is a tumultous rollercoaster of dreams, dreams within those dreams and frequent alteration of the subconscious minds of all those involved such that all are stuck in worlds that they forget to distinguish reality from.

A must watch, do not miss – Inception. 🙂
