Christopher Nolan | 2010 | 148 MINS
In Nolan’s first wholly original film since 'Memento', Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is an industrial spy who, with the help of his accomplice Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), extracts information from his sleeping targets by entering their dreams.

In Detail

Entrapped by one of his marks, Japanese businessman Mr Saito (Ken Watanabe), Dom is given a new mission, involving an act of ‘inception’ — the planting of an idea in the mind of another, in this case Robert Fischer (Cillian Murphy), heir to a monopolist empire and a rival of Saito.

The idea is that Cobb will convince Fischer to dismantle this empire and, in return, Saito will have the murder charge preventing Cobb from returning to America dismissed. In the time-honoured trope of the ‘mission’ action movie, Cobb hires a team of dream specialists to assist him, played by Elliot (then Ellen) Page, Tom Hardy and Dilip Rao. Nolan, in what was perhaps his most ambitious project at that time, revels in the opportunity to create multiple levels of reality in a kind of apotheosis of the Hollywood dream factory.
