Leonardo DiCaprio’s latest film is getting rave reviews already and is being touted as the film of the summer.
Inception which stars Leo, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ellen Page, tells the story of Dom Cobb an ‘extractor’ who invades rich and powerful people in their sleep and takes their deepest secrets from their subconscious.
Information about the sci-fi film, which is directed by The Dark Knight’s Christopher Nolan, has been kept hushed up so far. However, Leo has recently talked about his role in the mind-bender:
“It’s a very ambitious film. I think Chris Nolan tried to pull off a multi-dimensional narrative set within the subconscious of the human mind, and also provide an extremely entertaining thriller on a grand Hollywood scale,” he said.
“You’re dealing with surreal worlds and almost an existential film…. I looked at it like a giant therapy session for my character, this whole journey.”
Judging by the reviews so far, it looks like Nolan has pulled it off .
Speaking about the film the website HitFix said: “Inception is an exhilarating cinematic experience that suggests there is still room, even in the blockbuster world, for big ideas and dangerous emotions, and that may be the single most thrilling thing about it.”
While The Hollywood Reporter talking about Nolan said: “Inception puts him not only at the top of the heap of sci-fi all-stars, but it also should put this Warner Bros release near or at the top of the summer movies.”
Inception, whose cast also includes Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard and Tom Hardy, will be in UK cinemas on July 16.
