Definition: Inception is an event that is a beginning; a first part or stage of subsequent events.

I came ..... to the summer fare American science fiction film "Inception," written, produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page with others including Michael Caine appearances.

The movie's plot centers on a man who is able to enter others dreams to obtain otherwise inaccessible information. His skill has resulted in him losing his family and his nationality. An opportunity to redeem himself, including with family, occurs when he and his special team are engaged to seed an idea in a target's subconscious.

I saw ..... virtual non-stop action, visual special effects showcasing massive architectural creations, spectacular outdoor scenery, car chases, explosions, crashing wrecks, killing, mayhem, romantic moments, dreamers .....

I heard ..... noise, soft human vocal tones, explanatory scientific conversations, cajoling language, frantic yelling voices, rapid-fire weapons, more noise - louder, racing vehicle engines, daunting mood-creating music, over-whelming noise, humans voices expressing anger, rage, guilt, remorse from well-intentioned love.....

Then, I went home ..... to further decipher my movie experience. I concluded dream concepts continue to be intriguing. Complexity reins supreme on multiple relationship levels with significant others. Ideas can be unintentionally, deliberately or even falsely formulated in our minds by ourselves and others. I thought about why on two brief occasions toward the film's end tears came to my eyes and wondered if I was the only one with this reaction. This story is hardly a classic tear-jerker nor is it presented in a traditional way to be so.

Coincidentally, I discovered an early-in-his-career 1962 album titled "Inception" by jazz pianist McCoy Tyner accompanied by Art Davis and Elvin Jones. Perhaps I'll think more about the movie as I listen to this unrelated tune.


  1. LOVE that piano!!

    Misperceptions abound! (blogger doesn't think that's spelled correctly - sorry)

  2. Congratulations on the most descriptive movie review I have ever read.

    You are right when you said I would not care to see this movie - All that noise, all that action, all that rage and guilt - sure enough - I'm not going to see this one!

  3. I shall see what I think as well. Thanks for commenting on my in limbo blog.
