Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Inception

If Nolan wasn't conforming to the modern plot heavy gymnastics of modern mainstream films, some of his intriguing, but greatly unanalyzed ideas, could have elevated him to an auteur. Instead, it confirms my belief that he's talented, but is the most overrated English-language born director of the aughts decade and beyond, perhaps only with the exception of the film-school-in-a-box technique of Paul Thomas Anderson.
