Inception



Leo DiCaprio[On making Inception and director Chris Nolan]

I don't know what I'm supposed to say about it, but it's Chris Nolan delving into dream psychoanalysis and also making a high octane, action-filled, surreal film that is all spawned from his mind. He wrote the entire thing, and it all made sense to him. It didn't make much sense to us when we were doing it, and we had to do a ton of detective work to try to figure out what the movie was and what we were doing from day to day, but, thank God, we had somebody who knew what he was doing

Inception Movie Review

by Charles Robertson

'We are such stuff as dreams are made on' - Shakespeare

Hollwood is the ultimate dream machine, and Leo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, Tom Hardy, Ken Watanabe and Dileep Rao lead a strong crew of actors into the deeper recesses of the mind, dea sea diving into the subconscious. Dreams within dreams. Industrial espionage is the root of an elaborate layered dream world where one is inside a dream inside a dream inside a dream inside a dream. This give Director; Christopher Nolan a good opportunity to use all sorts of special effects. The Matrix is probably the gold standard for a dream within a dream and for special effects as well, but this film is pretty engrossing. An interesting twist is that the dreamer has to die to wake up from a dream and when you have a number of dreams on top of other dreams, it requires a carefully orchestrated cascade of deaths for those involved in the dream to wake up. Unlike The Matrix which commented on society, this film has less scope. Purely adventure for its own sake with some neat morality plays wrapped up inside. Leo Dicaprio is a mercenary spy called Cobb, and his mission to plant false info inside a corporate dreamers mind is threatened by his own subconscious. As in the 1990 film; 'Flatliners'; unresolved guilt leads to nasty consequences. Neat on a personal level, but inconsequential when it comes to anything more substantial.

Leo Dicaprio talks about his early life



I lived in Hollywood and, ironically, I didn't know you could just go out and get an agent and go on auditions and try and become an actor, I thought it was like a Masonic thing, like a blood line you had to belong to - until I was 13. Then I realised what you had to do. It is the one thing I know I want to do for the rest of my life.

My mom and I lived at Hollywood and Western, a drug-dealer and prostitute corner. It was pretty terrifying. I got beat up a lot. I saw people have sex in the alleys. I remember I was 5 years old, and this guy with a trench coat, needles and crack cornered me. Early on, seeing the devastation on my block, seeing heroin addicts, made me think twice about ever getting involved in drugs. It's evil. Once you take that step and experiment, drugs can take over your life. You are not yourself anymore. That's something I never wanted. I didn't have a lot of friends growing up. It was kind of just me and my parents. But because of them, the neighborhood did not have a bad effect on me. My dad introduced me to artists, and every few months we'd go to some hippie doo-dah parade as Mudmen in our underwear, carrying sticks and covered in mud. My mother did everything to get me into the best schools she could find.

The earliest memories I have are jumping up onstage before concerts in downtown L. A. and trying to get on the mic and break-dance, or do imitations of my mother's friends or my father's friends, or be a comic in class. I was the most insane child you can imagine, pretty intolerable to be around. High-octane energy all the time, never wanting to focus on schoolwork.
