Okay, I know it took me seven years to get to this movie, but I did it. Here’s what I thought. Wow! Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” is a wild ride into your dreams, literally. This is the most intense movie I have seen in a long time. It’s the story of Cobb(Leonardo Di Caprio and Arthur(Joseph Gordon Leavitt), who steal corporate secrets for a living through dream technology. Saito(Ken Wantabe) hires them to inverse the task of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO. The movie is intense and has a brilliant cast, with Ellen Page who plays a young woman named Ariadne, the architect of the dream, Cillian Murphy as Robert Fischer the CEO whose subconscious the team enters to plant the idea and British Actor Tom Hardy as the forger. I think one of the wildest concepts is the dream within a dream sequence. This could have been confusing but Nolan figured out a way of crafting this beautifully and it was very easy to follow. The one minor flaw and maybe it really isn’t a flaw, was that he utilized that very technique in the beginning of the movie and you were unaware whether Cobb was dreaming, or he was in reality. That may have been Nolan’s intent though, because the big question is what’s reality and what’s a dream? If you have a chance and like science fiction watch this movie. It definitely makes you think.

Hi, my name is Peter Murray. I am a scriptwriter and I started this blog as a way of promoting my own writing, which is mostly plays, screenplays and television scripts. bMy background is unique. My father is a retired theater Professor and both my parents acted at The Barnstormers Summer Stock Theatre in Tamworth New Hampshire, which was founded by my Godfather, Francis G. Cleveland, who was the son of President Grover Cleveland. Having all that history within my family and a Godfather who started a theatre, it was natural that I became interested in theater. I attended Johnson State College in Vermont with the specific purpose of becoming an actor. However, scriptwriting took over. I have been writing plays since I was about twelve. I would see a Barnstormer production and say, I can do that. Yes I could do that, but in those early years, not so well. As time went on I became much more proficient with a good ear for dialogue, plot and character development. I have written a few plays. Two were produced in Vermont, a one act for First Night in Burlington called "KIng Stud," and another titled Crossing The Bridge. The latter was also taken to the Barnstormers and done at the professional level with my Dad directing. My other writing includes a few movie scripts. One is a trilogy I am working on called Derby Double. It's an action adventure sports series dealing with Soccer. Another script is called the Third Eye about a metaphysical detective(Currently trying to work that into a television series.) And currently I am working on a television series about my childhood, both here in New Hampshire and England, where I lived for five years. I call this series, "Letters from England." I have five episodes in the can and you can read them here. View all posts by petercmurray26
