1986 - Inception
It would appear that I'm on a Christopher Nolan kick at the current moment. This is another film that plays with a lot of slight of hand - which is something that Nolan does in a lot of his films. The imagination inside of this film is super exciting - dreamscapes are a fun playground to be within, and this one is done on a epic proportion. It's got a super strong cast that are having fun playing within this playground. Few films have set pieces on this scale, but the best part is that they aren't just mindless action, but they all contribute to a really complex and unique narrative. This is easily one of the more heady thrillers ever made and just another in a line of proof that Christopher Nolan is one of our most exciting filmmakers - whether he's dealing with an original concept of his own or adapting someone elses - he knows how to keep an audience excited. If you haven't seen this, dig in!
