I saw Inception again recently and it was even better as leftovers. Inception stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Dominic Cobb a dream thief who enters the mind of businessman Robert Fischer, in order to plant the idea that he should break up his empire. Cobb and his team take Fischer down through four levels of dreaming, where hours turn into years and those who don’t pay attention (are lucid) end up in limbo.
Upon the partaking of some sleep juice, the dream team and Fischer enter the “Big mind” of shared dream, after tying themselves off with safety rope of timers and alarms (kicks) to the wake world. After, being spotted by Fischer’s security, tipped off by Cobb’s demons of his deceased wife, kept alive in a prison of memory, plans quickly change. On the run, the dream team keep their sanity amidst real bumps that become bombs and chills that become a frozen tundra. Eventually reaching the inner sanctum of Fischer’s mind they change it for the better.
In Zen the dream is in the mind and the real is in the mind. There is nothing outside of your mind, so you should not be surprised. Character is character, no matter where you are at, or what power presents itself. Mash on your eyeball and the walls will bend. Cobb’s dreaming or waking is of little importance, in the end he reaches the other shore. Forgiving himself, he sees his sweet children’s faces. In the words of lord Dhamu, “who cares about gray hairs”.
Inception is kind of like a psychological Matrix, with a great cast and story. I highly recommend this movie, giving it five stars.
