Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite modern directors. I love Memento (2000) and The Dark Knight (2008). Batman Begins (2005) was enjoyable as well, but I feel that Memento and The Dark Knight surpass it. The plots and characters of Memento and The Dark Knight intrigue me. I don't know why I haven't seen some of his other films yet because I've been wanting to, but I will see them fairly soon.
To me, Inception appears as though it will be a fantastic film. I love the casting of it, mainly because of Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy, and Marion Cotillard. Also, the story line of the film is strange and it entices me into the plot even from just watching the short trailer. I need to see this film, now! This movie is about dreams and using the mind in order to invade someone else's subconscious during their dream state. DiCaprio's character, Dom Cobb is the ultimate master of this and he has been invading others' dreams in order to steal ideas from them. This has made him a fugitive and has cost him everything. However, he is given the chance to redeem himself if he can do the impossible with his team of specialists, which would be to plant an idea into someone's subconsciousness rather than steal one away. Who or what will try to stand in the way? Will they succeed or not? I guess we'll just have to find out on July 16th.
