Leo, Marion, Joseph and Ellen (and Company) Plant Their Pretty in My Subconscious

Because I have NO WORDS to describe how mind-fucked in a good way, I feel about Inception (and I'm too lazy to do my Comic-Con pretty post & am still reeling from Mad Men), I thought I'd do what I do best, show my appreciation for the BRILLIANCE that is Christopher Nolan's masterpiece by focusing on the pretty cast.

Yes, the movie was so freaking amazing from the script to the music to the design to the EVERYTHING that I can't form coherent thoughts. Let's let Leo's pretty mug (along with other pretty members of the cast) do the talking instead. I finally can return to Tumblr.


In terms of sheer originality, ambition and achievement, Inception is the movie of the summer, the movie of the year and the movie of our dreams. -- Box Office Magazine

If Inception is a metaphysical puzzle, it's also a metaphorical one: It's hard not to draw connections between Cobb's dream-weaving and Nolan's filmmaking -- an activity devoted to constructing a simulacrum of reality, intended to seduce us, mess with our heads and leave a lasting impression. Mission accomplished. -- Variety

With physics-defying, thunderous action, heart-wringing emotion and an astonishing performance from DiCaprio, Nolan delivers another true original: welcome to an undiscovered country. -- Empire

Nolan blurs the distinction between dreams and reality so artfully that Inception may well be a masterpiece masquerading as a summer blockbuster. -- New York Post

Inception does a difficult thing. It is wholly original, cut from new cloth, and yet structured with action movie basics so it feels like it makes more sense than (quite possibly) it does. -- Chicago Sun-Times

The visuals are stunning, perhaps the most fully realized of any film. -- Arizona Republic


Inception is precisely the kind of brainy, ambitious, grand-scale adventure Hollywood should be making more of. -- Time

When was the last time you had your mind blown by a movie? Because when Inception ends and the lights come up, you'll be sitting in your seat, staring at the screen, wondering what the hell just happened. -- New York Daily News

A tremendously exciting science-fiction thriller that's as disturbing as it sounds. This is a popular entertainment with a knockout punch so intense and unnerving it'll have you worrying if it's safe to close your eyes at night. -- Los Angeles Times

This is spellbinding, transporting, damn near indescribable and the latest indication that Christopher Nolan might be the slyest narrative tactician making movies today. -- San Francisco Chronicle

Los Angeles

This is a deeply felt work of art in the form of a big, brassy movie-movie. -- Portland Oregonian

The film is an imposing, prismatic achievement, and strongly resistant to an insta-reaction; when it’s over, Nolan still seems a few steps ahead of us. -- The Onion

In a summer of remakes, reboots and sequels comes Inception, easily the most original movie idea in ages. -- The Hollywood Reporter

The film is easier to admire than to fully grasp or be moved by it. Still, it's worth surrendering to the dream. -- USA Today


In this wildly ingen ious chess game, grandmaster Nolan plants ideas in our heads that disturb and dazzle. The result is a knockout. But be warned: Inception dreams big. How cool is that? -- Rolling Stone
