Maintaining a shroud of convolution while transporting through a multi-dimensioned story that tackles mind control and the decadent balance between dream and death. Voluptuous scenes of action that suspend disbelief cascade in beautifully structured shots. Dreams emphatically come alive as the soundtrack holds steady at the helm, with ever-growing crescendos of captivation. Self indulgent? Very much so. Nolan’s exploration into the human psyche isn’t complex as first impressions tantalize. Walking with a swagger that is so blissfully unaware that the deliberate over-complication of the plot is easily recognizable, not constrained by the realms of Batman or physics. Mind over matter. 8
