About the Film: Inception refers to the difficult task of planting an idea in the mind of a subject by entering his or her dreams. Depicting a world where media technologies can be used to fill one's dreams with surreal architectures, impossible perspectives, and unreal cities, the film takes the viewer on a multi-level journey to the unconscious where memory blurs into desire. A science fiction suspense thriller with a famously elusive ending-- Inception asks questions about the roots of personal identity when it's no longer possible to distinguish between truth and fiction, reality and fantasy, or waking and dreaming.
