inception is a phenomenal movie.
i highly recommend it -- as a film, it is very well put together with no visible cracks in its own schema.
in my opinion, it is one the few movies that captures the essence of a philip k. dick novel -- i.e. the physical feeling you get when your mind is led onto a path of recursion and left to push thought after thought onto the stack, building up a mental map of its structure in the process.
nolan, the director, credits the stories of jorge luis borges with basic ideas for the film.
in any case, this movie is a resounding success.
