“You’re waiting for a train. A train that’ll take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you. But you can’t be sure. Yet it doesn’t matter.”
The originality of Nolan’s sci-fi epics are executed with, ambition, thrill, precision, a wide scope, and above all, a passionate hand that is unfound in Hollywood than that of any other filmmaker at such a consistent rate. Finally getting to see Inception on the big screen was an absolute privilege, and is only making me more excited for Tenet.
Going to see one of Nolan’s films isn’t just a regular Tuesday night activity; it’s a deeply engaging, mesmerizing event not to be shortly forgotten. Every technicality is distinguishing and perfected before our very eyes and ears. Such giant concepts require an immersive vision that goes beyond the concept itself. Hans Zimmer is an absolute genius, enhancing every second of the film with his progressing themes, and his own creation for the score is as visionary as the idea the film is based around. It’s an honest voice behind the characters in front of us, and it will always be the most intriguing and special part of the film for me. Leaving one more note for the incorporation of the Edith Piaf song.
