INCEPTION is the most rare of movie miracles - an art film that succeeds as blockbuster entertainment. This achievement is born from the gifts of writer/director Christopher Nolan, who displays such a love for filmmaking that audiences cannot help but be enveloped by his rapture. Leonardo DiCaprio proves once again to be America's leading man, guiding us through a mind-bending movie-within-a-movie, within-a-movie, within-a-movie - and cinematographer Wally Pfister's dazzling images create an indelible dream that demands to be relived again and again.

A red car does a 180-degree spin and a 90-degree slide, weaving through traffic. The car then does another 90-degree slide, hitting a car and knocking a bad guy down. A taxi backs up pinning the bad guy between two cars, pushing him backwards. The cab breaks free as it does a reverse 180-degree spin and drives off.
