It is by far one of my new favorite movies; I can’t stop thinking about it. I loved the characters, the plot, and everything else about it.
Good job, Christopher Nolan; you not only directed a great movie, you wrote it. High five.
I also just read an article I liked from LATIMESBlog with the title “Could Chris Nolan have convinced anyone but Warners to make ‘Inception’?” Its not bringing down the film. I really liked the following statement:
“It’s no secret that Warners has the most top filmmakers in its fold because, unlike some studio bosses, Robinov actually recognizes that the true source of creativity in a film derives from the filmmaker, not meddling studio executives.”
See Studio Exec Robinov gets it. The author also has a great quote from Robinov in the article by LA Times.
“But to make a studio successful, you always have to believe in talent and that often requires taking a certain leap of faith with filmmakers, which is easier to do if you’ve enjoyed a certain level of success together.” Coincidentally, the inception screenplay makes two references to leaps of faith. Or is it coincidental?
The article really spoke to me. Lately I’ve been saying that so many movies have been lacking any sort of creativity; that there have been no risks, no originality. Where have all the unique, different, creative and ORIGINAL movies gone? There have been so many REMAKES that it makes me want to give up on movies altogether. Take more risks, Hollywood! Its pretty obvious that you all have a stick up your ass and are so focused on yourselves that your forgetting something. You, Hollywood, are forgetting that filmmaking isn’t about doing the same project as everyone else that has succeeded; its about betting on innovation. Follow the lead of Warners, they get it. You may not get it all the time but step out of the glass box and move into the great wide world.
Again, I would like to congratulate Chris Nolan for writing a brilliant movie and convincing Warners to take a “Leap of faith.” Well done.
