I may not have liked Inception quite as much as a lot of people, but I have to admit (as I have been known to say frequently) I would rather see people try to do something great and fail (or not quite get there), than sit through yet another example of trying to do something mindlessly aimed at the lowest common denominator and succeed brilliantly.
While I think Nolan ultimately ran away with himself (see full review below), and could have used some other sounding board (brilliant things can be tricky to understand... so too nonsensical things), I also think he is nevertheless one of the most talented filmmakers working today. It may have folded over on itself too many times, but the film is still a fun adventure with amazing visuals, and thoroughly entertaining.
The release is somewhat light on bonuses, especially considering it is the film everyone was »
