Inception

Michael the Moviegoer – @@@@

Doing away with the common trailer voice-over opener cliche “in a world,” this trailer opens with Leonardo DiCaprio’s voice-over asking “what’s the most resilient parasite?” The answer is “an idea.” The trailer for “Inception” suggests a film that’s filled with ideas. Finally here’s a film that might give your brain cells a real work-out instead of killing them off. This whole trailer is in ‘teaser’ mode. It doesn’t give much away about the story or plot. But it’s visually arresting and loaded with intrigue. I would stand in line on opening night to see this one. It looks like it will be Christopher Nolan’s best work since “Memento.”

I’m right there with you, Michael. Maybe not in the same line, because of your foul body odor. But I am just as excited about this movie. “Memento” was my favorite movie of the 00’s decade. This promises to be as mind-bending as that, but with the mind-blowing scale of those comic book movies Nolan’s been giving us ever since. Not that scale matters. The shot of the water glass is such an easy practical effect, but like DiCaprio says, it’s the idea that draws me in. Why is gravity defied like that in this world Nolan has created? I trust the answer, from a guy who can tell a compelling story backwards, will be thrilling to find out. And it won’t have anything to do with a caped crusader this time around.

Opens July 16, 2010.
