Inception Reaction

I saw Christopher Nolan's Inception this morning at 10:40am (with about four other people in the Cinemark 14 in Valparaiso, Indiana) and with apologies to IndieWire's Anne Thompson and CHUD's Devin Faraci, it's not a "Kubrickian masterwork" but rather one of the most satisfying, engaging and densely-crafted action films of recent memory.

What I love about it is its inspired melding of genres and influences that results in something that's part science-fiction geekery and part crime/heist formula. It's a new vision, a new experience and yet it's completely and wholly a Nolan film.
