Inception is the story of a thief named Dom Cobb (DiCaprio), who has a special set of skills that allow him to steal information and ideas from people’s minds while they sleep. Cobb’s line of work has cost him his family and everything in life he ever loved. He is offered a final job that can guarantee him his life and family back, but instead of stealing an idea, he must plant one. As Cobb plans for this task, nothing can prepare him for the dangers that lie not only the subject’s mind, but his own mind as well.
Recommendation: Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Elen Page, Marion Cotillard and Tom Hardy are all apart of this great cast. This was instantly one of my favorite movies, and by far DiCaprio’s best of his career (yes, including Titanic). Christopher Nolan (creator of Dark Knight Trilogy) creates a spectacular and completely original script. I think I saw this at least 5 times in theaters. Best IMAX film I’ve ever seen. Amazing.
