"Am I a man dreaming I'm a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming I'm a man?" Chuang Tzu asked 2,300 years ago. In Christopher Nolan's stylish sleep thriller "Inception" he answers we're both -- butterfly and man.
Yet the science behind Inception is more surreal than the film, whose lovingly layered plot still underplays the wonderfully weird wildness of dreams. So, dream thief Mr. Cobb, what about your job is science fiction and what's science?

I don't care about the facts, they don't change my opinion that this is the greatest movie in many years. I confess that I "suffer" from cinephilia, but this movie is amazing on so many levels. No pun intended. Its 10 out of 10. Two thumbs up. "Avatar" sucked, yet it'll still end up make more in the box office than "Inception". People have crap taste in movies, music and the arts in general.
