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

I still don't understand why some people insist that Inception would have been a better movie if it had looked a little more like What Dreams May Come.
So long as you're making a movie about dreams, why not cut loose and explore the limits of what you can do visually if you're not constrained by any expectations of reality? Why does a movie set entirely in dreams insist on being so literal minded and so damn logical? While it's better than most heist movies out there, it feels like it could have been so much more. Why are the dreams of Inception less vivid & imaginative than the realities of Avatar or Star Wars? While Nolan's gritty realism was a refreshing new take when he did Batman Begins, I'm starting to think that gray urban landscapes are all he can do.
