Dom Cobb is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming. –IMDb

It really is a story about how a man deceives himself, how a man tricks himself into thinking reality is not reality and further buries himself inside his own fantasies, staying safe from the harsh nature of the outside world inside his own mind. I don't think it's a coincidence that Nolan began working on this when he was working on Memento. It's also a great allegory of filmmaking.
Some kind of weird hybrid of Mulholland Drive and Dreamscape put through a Michael Mann filter. Some next level shit. Nolan's best and probably the best film of 2010.
A propulsive survey of scores focusing on the thriller: procedurals, bank heists, neo-noirs, spy films, giallos, and sci-fi mind-games.
