An inventive, intelligent, exciting thriller with plenty to see and lots to think about, writer/director Chris Nolan’s Inception bent reality beyond breaking point. Leonardo took the lead as the boss of a squad of mind robbers who steal secrets from people’s dreams. Though typically in a feature this big, it’s the film itself that’s the star, Leo’s character and his journey gave the movie the heart it would not have succeeded without.

Said Leo of Nolan, “It didn’t make much sense to us when we were doing it, and we had to do a ton of detective work to try to figure out what the movie was and what we were doing from day to day, but, thank God, we had somebody who knew what he was doing.”
