A surreal, bizarre, action-filled and amazing ride into mind after mind.
Cobb has a very special area of expertise, he's an extractor, a person who infiltrates your dreams and steals your secrets. It's the most versatile weapon, information is power, and Cobb has the skills to get any intel in the world, no matter where it may be. Working closely with Arthur, an 'architect', a person who designs dreams, he works for different companies, mostly doing industrial espionage. Arthur makes the dreams, Cobb goes in and finds the intel. It may seem like a good, well-payed, work but Cobb is not only fighting mega-corporations, he's fighting his own emotions. All he dreams about is going back home, but he can't.
|Remember when he was just a boy?|
This movie is not people who over analyze movies, because I can guarantee you that this movie will suck for you. If you on the other hand take it for what it is, a movie, you'll love it to death. It has everything a good movie should have, great actors, good character development, an awesome story, a lot of action balanced with a lot of romance, emotion and you're somehow able to relate to people in this movie(really, how did that work out?).
Even if you don't think that this is your kind of movie, I'll still recommend you to watch it. The reason is, it's so immensely popular that if you ever find yourself in a conversation talking about this movie you kind of need a response. I think this is one of the few movies that needs to be seen, no matter your preference(kind of like The Shawshank Redemption or Schindler's list).
Next up is Waking life, as some people suggested it in comments. I'm still accepting suggestions, and I'll get to every single one that comes in before starting my Bale streak. So, suggest more people!
And as always, you can buy it right here, 17.94 for the Blu-ray one!
