Inception In Theaters
"Inception" - With "Inception," Christopher Nolan ("Batman," "Batman Begins") directs an international cast in an original scifi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming. This summer, your mind is the scene of the crime.

Sixty Second Movie Review
By Josh Lippman
Ever wonder what it would be like to plant an idea into a person’s mind while they were asleep? If so, the movie Inception staring Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will transport you to a dream world of breathtaking scenery and awesome special effects not seen since the likes of The Matrix. Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, this clever mind-twisting film that truly blends the lines between real life and reality. Average viewers beware, the audience will need to pay very close attention from start to finish or you just might find yourself lost and confused in this sci-fi thriller. DiCaprio plays Cobb, a freelance eradicator for hire that attempts to pull off one more big job in an attempt to get his life back only this time instead of eradicating information
from someone’s mind he needs to perform inception, the planting of an idea in a person's mind without them knowing. DiCaprio’s acting in the film was riveting and the multi-layered storyline should keep you on the edge of your seat for the film’s entirety. Try not to blink or you might just miss an integral part that will leave you with more questions than answers by films end. This movie is not for everyone, but if I’ve been able to accomplish anything with this review it’s that I’ve used inception to convince you that seeing this movie will mentally stimulate and challenge your mind.
