We just got this in our Netflix finally, and I found it fascinating! Little elements of The Matrix here and there yes? I think the cast was excellent, and Leo is really underrated. It was good to see Ellen Page as... quietly normal. I found spiritual elements there as well. I think the art/cinematography was beautiful too. What did you all think?
I know I'm totally late to the game... Inception?
i still havent seen that movie but am dying to.
one of my friends whose opinions on movies match mine recommended it.
so i cant wait to watch it. i am not a big science fiction person, but cant wait to watch it.
in many places i have seen it get really high stars for review by the general public.
My husband wanted to see it, so we went and saw it in the theater when he had a day off. Then we talked about it at length, but I had a disconnect with it in that the way dreams worked in that world were different enough than how dreams work for me. But now, oddly enough, I can't remember specifically what it was.
I just finally watched it a few nights ago and am so glad to see this thread. I LOVED it. So much that I watched it again the next night just to see things I had missed. My husband and son, not so much.
I also saw parts of the Matrix in it and brought it up to DH but he didn't really catch it.
I guess I've wondered so many times if this life is really a dream, or if parts of my life were really dreams or whatever that the movies really resonated with me. I also am big into lucid dreaming and have trained myself to be able to do certain things in my dreams so I thought it was pretty cool.
I thought the plot, acting, cinematography were all pretty darn good too. Really wish I had seen it on the big screen. Actually, that was my FB post after I watched it!
