    Yeah,… just yeah! This movie is the shit in so many ways! Great cast, bonkers premise (not so much the dream espionage, but the dream levels and their rules), another shatteringly epic score from Zimmer, most notably, “Time” from the films denouement in the airport through Cobb’s reunion with his children, a ton of heart (the scene at the end with Fischer and his father is crushingly beautiful), and an ambiguous conclusion that is hotly debated to this very day.…

    ★★★

    Good movie, but completely exhausting and deflating to watch. Fassbender and Reilly kill it as always (no pun intended), but by the end you feel like you’ve suffered their fate just by having watched it.

    ★★★★

    Rachel Sennott drops a house on the audience with a tour de force performance that demands all to stop and take notice. Her character, Danielle, isn’t all that likable, but there’s something familiar about her youthful, rudderless, naivety mixed with a healthy dose of ambition and self delusion. It is this familiarity, and the empathy we feel from witnessing her tortured by insufferable friends, family, and fate, all in one hellish afternoon, that ultimately wins the audience back to her side,… we were all Danielle once.
