Re: Inception (Christopher Nolan, Leonardo DiCaprio) Grading & Discuss

Also, your enthusiasm for Nolan's mastery of his craft is nothing to be ashamed of. Not only because I share it, but because we are living in bleak times in term of cinema. Nolan's old school style is very reminiscent of Speilberg, Kubrick, and Hitchcock, but he definitely has a modern sensibility that is essential that is appropriate to the material. When I say that I won't give a Nolan film a pass because it simply is a Nolan film, it is because I am passionate about the content and style of his directing, and love to examine why, and in doing so I want to recognize what works and what does not work, just as I did in my examination of almost everything in Spielberg's millue.
See, the problem is that you are using your cards to show me what cards you have, and if you can't see that this is viciously circular, then there is no point in continuing
