Today’s my birthday! We did a bunch of stuff that left me fairly exhaustified.
Last night we caught the midnight showing of Inception. I went into this movie expecting something as wonderful as Memento or The Prestige… and I was not disappointed. I love a twisted sci-fi story that establishes some strange but consistent rules… and then follows them. If you can keep up with it this is a movie that will keep you completely enthralled start to finish. If not… well… it’s going to lose you and it won’t get you back.
Dumb people are going to be complaining about the ending for years, and smart people are going to be arguing about it. Absolutely fantastic. If there’s a better director currently active in Hollywood, I don’t know of him.
