In a cinematic world run by franchises like Marvel and Star Wars, Christopher Nolan's 2010 sci-fi blockbuster Inception showed how it's done by becoming the highest-grossing non-animated non-technology-carried fully original movie ever made. The question then -- how did Inception pull in over 800 million at the box office with nothing else to depend on? The short answer is that it used various dream-oriented narrative writing techniques. The longer answer is this video. So in today's Film Perfection, let's take a look at Leonardo Dicaprio and Tom Hardy and Joseph Gordon Levitt's Inception to see how use dreams in your movie.

Inception (2010)
Visionary filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Dark Knight) writes and directs this psychological sci-fi action film about a thief who possesses the power to enter into the dreams of others. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) doesn't steal things, he steals ideas. By projecting himself deep into the subconscious of his targets, he can glean information that even the best computer hackers can't get to. In the world of corporate espionage, Cobb is the ultimate weapon. But even weapons have their weakness, and when Inception Hallway Dream Fight - Art of the Scene how to introduce a villain Cobb everything wrong with inception why inception is a masterpiece (my favorite film) tenet everything wrong with tenet tenet inception sequel loses everything inception explained tenet explained time inversion hans zimmer time inception paris cafe implosion inception 2 ellen page dark knight rises bane batman christian bale chris nolan inception sequel tenet clip 4k hd watch tenet full movie online free watch inception full movie online free inception official trailer tenet the plan official trailer, he's forced to embark on one final mission in a desperate quest for how to build the perfect villain artimus fowl how to insult the audience gods of egypt a guide to making the ultimate trash studio movie charlie's angels how gender obsession can ruin movies underwater how to fail at alien redemption.

They've planned everything to perfection, and they have all the tools to get the job done. Their mission is complicated, however, by the sudden appearance of a malevolent foe that seems to know exactly what they're up to, and precisely how to stop them.

  • One Theory, I never see anybody talk about is halfway in through the movie where Leonardo DiCaprio is trying out that new sedative in that sleep bunker for the first time. And you see him wake up and go to the bathroom splashing his face with water in the sink and spinning his "totem top" to see if he's in the dream or not.. He gets interrupted. And you never see if it actually stayed or not? I think from that moment on to the end of the movie.. He's in the dream!?

    Max MatsonMax Matson6 tuntia sitten
    • No. Michael Caine has already explained that every scene that he is in is real. Also Cobb's totem is his wedding ring which you can see only when he's dreaming, the top belongs to his wife

  • Everything you said reminds me of Halo: Combat Evolved. Every mission is in a unique location for a specific reason that's introduced. And when you revisit some levels later, there a twist on them. They're infected, you playing the level backwards except flying, your infiltrating not escaping. Even the opening has the ship just escaping from some different conflict that isn't explained. As for iconic images with emotional symbolism, the halo ring itself, the halo theme that plays whenever you're doing something heroic, the flood theme and the famous green suit of armor himself.

    Alex IaurumAlex Iaurum2 päivää sitten
  • When I watched Inception for the first time I didn't get what was so special about it. Because of this video I watched it again and now I think I get it. The movie is 99% action and 1% explanation. You guys like action. I like inglorious basterds which is 99% story and 1% action. I didn't accept the reality Inception was putting forward. Dreams don't work the way they present. Manipulating your brain into having an idea is the opposite of difficult. Time slows during dreaming because you only dream the important parts not because it slows down. The protagonist should get counseling not a dream walk. Can anybody explain how the dream technology works? You take drugs and.... Does the brain get connected to a machine? How do you receive information from another persons brain? Brains are incompatible so you would have to have a super computer that takes your brain information, converts it to a 3d game level and push that back to everybody's brain. But there is no computer in the movie right? Who invented the brain technology? Why did he stop? Why did only one person invent it? Wouldn't this technology spread very fast over the world? This movie left me with a lot of questions and no story or ideas to think about.

  • Hey, Filmento, big fan here! I have a doubt. In your The Dark Knight video you said how the film's opening is so good because it is "a day in the life". In this video you praised Inception because in its opening scene things are already happening. But there's no "a day in the life" here. If you would solve my doubt, it'd be great. Thank you for the entertaining videos!

  • Fun fact about the director: "Inception" is inspired by Christopher Nolan's ability to lucid dreaming. A lucid dream is a brain status between being awake and sleeping, when the dreamer realizes that he/she is dreaming. In a lucid dream, the dreamer can decide the direction the dream "plot" is going like a film director can decide where and how the next scene is playing out. It is an amazing thing to experience because the dream looks and feels like a normal dream, but the dreamer can decide the "plot" of the dream, e.g. where the location of the next scene shall be or what person to add to the dream and what that other person shall do next.

  • I never bought into the main conceit of this film because people don't dream like this. The film bends the laws of physics, but dreams aren't just matrix bending machines. In other words, it isn't surreal (as in, for instance the film of Bunuel or Lynch, Charlie Kaufman, and so on). Inception feels too logical, and too urban, as if it were made by men in suits around a board room table in an office building ... because that's all we see in this movie. There is furthermore no symbol system. Analogies, yes. But not symbols.

  • While Inception does have a lot of exposition, I feel like the audience for the most part doesnt mind it because their level of intrigue is so high that in their head they are also asking the same questions that Ariadne is asking. Plus, the movie finds ways to mask the exposition with incredible visuals, like all of those things exploding and the city folding on itself, the paradox stairs or everything in the bar shifting to an angle when Cobb tells Fischer about his subconscious.

  • I've often wondered why people said Inception was a great movie. To me it was very forgettable and I have no desire to see it again. The things I remember from it was that it seemed to break conventions like placing a Chekovs gun (the train, bending the dream in real time) and _never_ using it or having a main story that goes entierly according to plan. Oh, and that _massively stupid_ "only using ten percent of your brain so dreams are ten times faster" thing. Then where does the hundred times faster dream-within-a-dream come from? Or the thousand times faster... GAHHH! It's soooo _STUPID_! But I think halfway though I finally got it. It's a great _action_ movie. The story is shit, but the action is cool. When I saw it I expected another Primer or Memento, something you have to think about, so my expectations were completely off.

  • Inception completely killed it's memorability by using the cheapest most forced open ending. Worse would be only DiCaprio looking into camera and winking. At the end with last shot of the infinitely spinning top and cutting away it immediately overwritten like 90% of the movie with singular idea - this is cheap.

    PixelPhoenixPixelPhoenix11 päivää sitten
    • @PixelPhoenix Words are just symbols that a society agrees to associate a certain meaning with. Because the word inception wasn't commonly used prior to the movie, people began to redefine it to refer to the infamous concept from the movie. As in, society decided on a new definition. There was some pushback at the time, but at the end of the day no one is using the word inception unless they are referring to the movie, so the new unofficial definition is "a thing within a thing" until webster's dictionary finally declares it the rule. Words don't actually have an inherent meaning, the way and frequency that people use words establish their meaning.

      PixelPhoenixPixelPhoenix11 päivää sitten
    • -ception isn't a suffix. Yes, people use the word inception to be interchangeable with "meta" or to describe something within something and that's because they redefined the word based on the main concept of the movie with the same name (inception, about dreams within dreams.) When this movie first came out and people first began using the term incorrectly, a lot of people complained. You're about 500 years too late there
