I’m really pleased that Inception has been nominated for the Best Picture Oscar, along with 7 other nominations.
I remember seeing the trailer for the first time. I was at another film and was glued to the trailer. As soon as it finished I turned to my friends and said “We’re going to see that”.
We did, and we all loved it. We came out discussing it intently, which I always find is the sign of a good film.
The idea is so original and so well-executed, and the cast are excellent, so what’s not to love? This film doesn’t talk down to the viewer; the story is dense and multi-layered so you have to concentrate to keep up, but it rewards you if you do.
