Inception (2010):

The majority of movies just come and go. We watch many of them and we’ve forgotten about them less than thirty minutes after the end credits have rolled.
Others, like Inception, are a true cinematic experience. Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, Inception is a brilliant, action-packed head-trip sci-fi adventure. The special effects, performances and soundtrack all come together seamlessly to give a feast for the eyes and ears.
The best way to watch any movie for the first time is not to know anything about it. That way you are as open to the mystery the story offers as the characters within. This is particularly true of past movies like: Shutter Island (2010), Moon (2009), Silent Hill (2006), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), Vanilla Sky (2001), Memento (2000) and Jacob’s Ladder (1990).
On a trivia note, the song that is repeated in the story is Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien (No, I Regret Nothing), written and composed in 1956 by Charles Dumont and Michel Vaucaire. It was sang most famously by Édith Piaf. Marion Cotillard played Édith Piaf in the 2007 biopic La Vie en Rose (Life in Pink).
When reviewing movies I have often given some details of the plot, but this time all I’m going to say is watch it. The same goes with many of the best movies that make going to a cinema such a special event. Pay your money at the box office … sit down in front of the big screen … take a leap of faith … dare to dream … and then go a step further … dare to dream within a dream. It's one of the main reasons cinema was invented.
