INCEPTION - (2010) - Episode 37
What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? AN IDEA. On this Throwback episode, Gali invites Patrick, Devlin and Matt on a journey through subconscious layers to revisit INCEPTION a decade after its monumentally successful debut.
Dream thief Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) finds himself in hot water: exiled from his homeland and separated from his children by a mysterious incident, and on the run from some very angry industrialists, he has no choice but to take a job from the powerful Mr Saito (Ken Watanabe) to mount his most ambitious heist to date - implant an idea in to another person’s unconscious mind. Assembling a team, they will face dangers not just from the mind of their mark Robert Fischer (Cillian Murphy), but the darkness lurking in Cobb’s own.
Will this dazzling critical darling still wow our panel? Did this dream reveal deep truths that our waking minds could devour? Or, looking back, was it all a bit of a sleight of hand trick? We discuss the remarkable rise of Christopher Nolan, his position at the upper echelon of the auteur tree, and the legacy of a film whose success was a real game changer for the filmmaker-as-brand.
Outro Song - 'Together in Electric Dreams' Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder (1985)
