Multi-Layered Dreams: Inception

I know that this has been a long overdue review, but as the creme de la creme of all 2010 movies, it is only fitting to put my two cents worth here.

Dom Cobb (Leonardo di Caprio) is a special agent that specializes in the extraction of dreams. As skilled as he was, a last job to take him home to his children is his most complicated of all as he should reverse what he is used to doing. Enter Inception, to plant an idea to the subconcious of their mark.

As Saito (Ken Watanabe), a businessman whose fiercest competition has a son who will take over a business empire, hires and prepares them for the job to enter Robert Fischer, Jr.'s (Cillian Murphy) dream. The Plan: Enter Fischer's mind to plant a way for him to destroy his father's company and make Saito rise above them. Cobb assembles his team by hiring talented people. Ariadne (Ellen Page) worked as the Architect, Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) - the Point Man, Eames (Tom Hardy) working as the Forger and Yusuf (Dileep Rao), the chemist who will provide the sedative to put a multi-layered dream into life.

As their plan progresses, the team went into three layers of dream. But as the last plan was getting foolproof, Cobb's past continued to haunt him, thus, creating a distraction to what they had all built --- someone who Cobb needs to let go so he could live his normal life with his kids and lead his future -- his wife, Mal (Marion Cotillard).

Christopher Nolan made the viewers feel that they are also in the world of Inception. He made everyone keep on guessing if it is still Cobb's dream, or everything about the film is a huge dream scene. Leonardo di Caprio is still in his best. I loved how he was able to make me believe in the scenes on how he loved his wife and kids, and he would do everything just to go back and make everything perfect again. Ariadne was my most favorite character. Not just because she shapes the dreams but she has the closest connection to Cobb. And to Arthur, whom I got so hyped up when they kissed. :P

The visuals were the best part of the movie, especially when Cobb was introducing Inception to Ariadne. I hope I'd be able to watch this in 3D if time permits.

Gave five stars to this movie because it kept me thinking, threw debates with my boyfriend if the scenes are still real or a dream. And next to Titanic, this is the second Leonardo di Caprio's movie that I enjoyed and loved.

Well, this is my subconscious and reality talking. :D
