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 script writer and this blog is a rebirth for me. I started it three years ago, but I could never find the time for it. Now that I am between jobs, I decided to start again. My background is unique. My father is a retired theater Professor and Actor and both my parents acted at a Summer Stock theater for close to 60 years. So it was natural that I became interested in theater. At first I wanted to be an actor and I went to Johnson State College in Vermont with that specific purpose and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Somewhere along the line, my love for writing scripts took over. I have written a few plays, two produced in Vermont and New Hampshire. I also have written a few screenplays and I am currently working on a television pilot. Here's hoping I can network and have someone buy it. Now I am writing this blog with an idea of sharing ideas with other script writers. I hope you will come visit as I plan to share a lot of content here. Remember if your a script writer, the script is the thing. View all posts by petercmurray26
