It's All In Your Dreams

Or is it?

Yesterday was a hot and awful day outside so what better way to spend it than in the movies. We saw Inception. (Tomatometer: 87%; IMDB.)

By now you may know it has been at the top of the box office for two solid weeks earning $143 million and then some. By now you know it stars Leonardo De Caprio. By now you know it is about dreams and the ability to get inside other people's dreams and place new thoughts there.

That's all I will tell you. Other than it is worth the time to let the movie play its mind games with you. It is worth the intensity of following the story line(s) in different threads. It is worth the recurrence of the story later in the day as you ponder the meaning of dreams.

In many ways it is a Matrix-type movie that goes inward in much different- and much more personal ways. (Plus Leo can act!)

But that is all I can tell you. You see if I tell you too much They will wake me up.

See it.

the movie's logic was severely flawed.
and poorly acted.
i feel like christopher nolan is overrated - he's got a great angle of approaching a story, but he's not invincible like people make him out to be.

like the blog,
