Just back from the midnight showing of Christopher Nolan’s Inception. Fortunately my only pre-show hype was a singular viewing of the trailer a few months back; post-facto I’ve now sifted through what amounts to a whole schlock of fanboy commentary. Mind-blowing? Hardly. It was simply too well constructed to be mind-blowing. As another reviewer put it, I wanted it to be weirder. Blame my stoic reception on works like Persona, Inland Empire, Dogville, and (dare I say it) Memento, but I just have trouble swallowing the hype over this film (pre- and post-debut). That is, the psychological hype. It certainly held up its promise of thrills. So here’s my review, simply: Entertaining to boot. Nothing more, but definitely worth the theater experience.
