smndvdcl's rating of the film Inception

Towing the line between his mainstream and experimental affectations, Nolan pays homage to 'La Jetee' in this meta-narrative, hall-of-mirrors, Escher-esque, dream-within-a-dream-within-a-dream premise. Whilst 'Memento' remains his greatest cinematic achievement, there is much of merit in a film where an ensemble cast shine alongside the intricacies of this carefully conceived Rubic's cube narrative.
