Inception: Revisiting the dream after two years

Inception is a masterpiece, that much is and always be certain. Carefully crafted by the guiding hand that brought us Memento, The Prestige, and the Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan brought a unique film that explored the concept of dream and reality while injecting it with a tale that makes it one of the most memorable movie experiences of all time. With the director's latest offering "The Dark Knight Rises" just around the corner this week, it's literally been two years since his previous film's release on just about the same time frame.

I look back at the significance of Inception because it still carries a following to this day. Exploring the corners and recesses of the film in a wonderfully woven tale of heist and espionage, the film showcases a tremendous amount of talent and casting lead by Leonardo DiCaprio. The acting is top notch, and there's plenty of excitement along with compelling narrative that's not hard to grasp at all despite the sci-fi concept. Nolan makes it simple enough to understand, and it works to his strengths and the audience's pleasure. 

It's also because of Inception that we're going to be seeing stars like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, and Marion Cotillard back and taking on other significant roles in The Dark Knight Rises. I cannot stress how much you need to revisit this film if you're a fan, or if you haven't seen it yet... You Should.
