Special Inception screening for our monthly Teen Film Club (age 15 – 18) on
July 28th, 13.00. Tickets €5.

Although now best known for redefining the summer blockbuster, director Christopher Nolan was once most lauded for his skill at manipulating narrative chronology to remarkable effect in Memento. With his spectacular new film Inception, which has the writer-director’s first solo original screenplay since his stylish debut with Following, Nolan seems intent on combining elements from his Batman pictures with the mind-bending qualities of his earlier work. In what Nolan has described as ‘an existential heist movie’, Leonardo DiCaprio plays Cobb, a thief preparing for one last job. While this may sound like the stuff of cliche, Nolan’s approach here is to play with levels of reality rather than of time. Cobb is an industrial spy who steals knowledge from his targets’ dreams; on this assignment however, the brief is to plant an idea. Armed with a remarkable cast and a budget to achieve truly stunning visual effects, with Inception Nolan may have created that rarest of beasts – an art-house blockbuster. (Notes by Kevin Coyne.)
