For the last week, since my first viewing of Inception, my conversations with friends and co-workers have invariably included the following interchange:

“Have you seen Inception yet?”

If the answer the that question was yes, much discussion, admiration and speculation ensued. If the answer to that question was no, they got the following response:

“Okay, then I’m not talking to you about it. Get to a theater. See it. And avoid anyone who wants to tell you anything about it.”

My friends/co-workers nodded, stirring their coffee, and chuckled. I solemnly stared them down and asked, “Seriously, what are you still doing here? Go. To a theater. Now.”

This created a few awkward situations, but I made my point.

I can’t write what I would like to about this film. Not yet, anyway. I can’t because I’m not going to put spoiler alert warnings all over this post and I refuse to try to tell you about it without telling you about it. I’ll only say three things about Inception at this time:

1. I loved it.

2. It is easily the most original film since the Matrix, which was pretty damn original.

3. It was more fun to see the second time than it was the first.

I highly recommend it.
