Re: Inception (Christopher Nolan, Leonardo DiCaprio) Grading & Discuss
I'm not sure how I would rate it. Yes, the movie navigates its own internal logic with a deft and expertise that is quite rare today. It's just that its own internal logic is so unbelievably stupid. If you give it points for its dexterous filmmaking, you also have to take away points for the ludicrous conceit behind it all. There is just way too much suspension of disbelief required to remain engaged in the story, which consistently hovers between ridiculous and absurd.
