I made the mistake of reading some reviews about this film by prominent Canadian bloggers before seeing the movie. They didn’t like the film. I, on the other hand, loved the film. It was a new concept, and an interesting story. The bloggers in question had me thinking that it was simply an overblown heist caper, but it wasn’t. The ‘heist’ was secondary to the main question of the film, which was a question about the very nature of DiCaprio’s character. I won’t say any more, lest I ruin the fun.
Also: The ending was very frustrating, because I always crave answers. But I understand the artistic choice of that ending, however much it frustrated me.
PS: One particular blogger was right about one thing – dreams aren’t linear, as portrayed in the film. Oh well; the film was still entertaining as hell, even if you have to suspend your disbelief on the way we actually dream.
