It is pretty awesome that in today's hedge your bets world of filmmaking, Warner Bros. bankrolled this movie to the tune of $160 million.
When you consider the complexity of its plot and how, unlike other films, it doesn't hang its politics on its sleeve, or lead you by the hand (and claim not to), Inception is probably the best film of 2010 thus far.
I am sure there are people that will relate it to other movies in which dreams have a central theme, but I can't recall the last time I saw a movie with movie stars that didn't feel like a vehicle for those stars. Come to think of it, there weren't even any real movie moments.
Inception is about as good as movies get. If nothing else, it is pure cinema. It is an excuse to have that wonderful experience of simply losing yourself at the movies.
