The general public and critics alike like to speculate what made Inception such a buzzword this past summer. Could it be that the film offers so many pop-psychology discussions and what-if debates in Hollywood moviegoers that hadn't been seen since The Matrix? Or is it the fact often stated that it came at a time when big budget action movies emphasize spectacle over story, and audiences at large were hungry for something a smidge brainier? But the same was said of Nolan’s own The Dark Knight just two years prior, and the still-sky-high box office returns of the braindead entertainment it’s supposedly replacing certainly knocks a few pegs off that theory.
Or maybe the answer is much simpler. Maybe the film just hits a universal chord. And I'm not talking about that Bwooomp sound Hans Zimmer kept making.
My initial impression of the film can be read here. »
