I read a very good review of Inception:
A story within a story unfolds that adds to your frustration layer by layer, scene by scene, character by character, that by the time you've figured out what's happening in one story, there's a development in the sub story that makes you question yourself. Now compound this twice, add a sub-plot that is supposed to be the emotional crux of the story, lead the audience along on one idea and segue just as the audience is about to xpect some form of closure, throw in some gravity-defying stunts and fight scenes, get a busy city square to fold itself and then seal the deal with a climax that doesn't offer you any concrete answers.


  1. one that I read at so many places:

    Inception is impervious to criticism because no one short of a NASA physicist will be able to comprehend it the first time.

    it keeps you on your toes nonetheless.

  2. I had no idea people ever saw this blog of mine!

    Aah, Inception, looking back at it, I think I hardly remember anything better than the forever-fretting dicaprio!

  3. hmm. I don't remember much either except the soundtrack perhaps. Apparently The Hindu had called it 'two steps ahead of Memento'. Audacious!
