cast: Leonardo DiCaprio
The premise of entering another person's dreams is intriguing enough, as are scenes where Leonardo DiCaprio explains, often visually with applied mind-trip tours, how the whole thing works. But a confusing plot (or plots) and overlong action scenes distract from the essential element of dreams and inception, as do detours about Leo's dead wife which, after a while, becomes the entire film: leaving the other characters... fellow dream-teamers, clients and villains... in the dust. Director Christopher Nolan loves his dialog, but (like always) uses way too much of it. Perhaps a YOU ARE HERE red dot would help what becomes information overload after a while.
