We recently received the newly released DVD Inception. This movie is full of drama and intrigue, as well as spectacular visuals (including a fauborg in Paris folding in on itself). Fantastic performances by an all-star cast featuring Leonardo di Caprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, Marion Cotillard, and Michael Caine. Major parts of the story take place in the subconscious and are subject to manipulation-the “ planting” of an idea as a method of International espionage. This is a film not to be missed.
