Inception ★★★★★

Everyone has one of those films that you see when you're younger and you can't quite appreciate it, but you know that you've seen something remarkable. I was young and I was starting to get into film, and I knew Nolan from The Dark Knight at the time, but nothing prepared my little mind for the brilliance that hit me like a freight train running at full speed while simultaneously falling off of a massive cliff. I was thunderously exhilarated and entranced by the whole thing, with every bullet and "kick" hitting my mind and my imagination with furious potency and startling vision. I sat in a packed auditorium with a goofy grin on my face for the entire duration of the film, reveling in the operatic scope of the whole tapestry in a state of childish glee. When I was young, It wasn't Transformers that got me excited, it was these types of stories; ones about sacrifice, memories, and fate.

I already knew that cinema was my calling, and that I wanted to be involved in it. However, it was with Inception that I came to the realization that I wanted to study the movies. Christopher Nolan's Inception reaches heights of almost unparalleled majesty and entertainment, and with a film this towering and fiercely emotional, all I could do was sit back with an audience and dream with them. Join me.
