Christopher Nolan wrote and directed the 2010 science fiction action film Inception, which he also produced with his wife, Emma Thomas. Leonardo DiCaprio plays a professional thief who steals information by infiltrating his targets’ subconscious minds. He is offered the opportunity to have his criminal record erased in exchange for implanting another person’s idea into the subconscious of a target. Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Elliot Page, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, and Michael Caine are among the ensemble cast members.
Following the completion of Insomnia in 2002, Nolan presented to Warner Bros. a written 80-page treatment for a horror film based on lucid dreaming that envisioned “dream stealers.” Nolan shelved the project, deciding that he needed more experience before tackling a project of this magnitude and complexity. Instead, he worked on Batman Begins in 2005, The Prestige in 2006, and The Dark Knight in 2008. The treatment was revised over a six-month period before being purchased by Warner in February 2009. Inception was shot in six countries, beginning on June 19 in Tokyo and ending on November 22 in Canada. It had an official budget of $160 million, which was split between Warner Bros. and Legendary. Nolan’s reputation and success with The Dark Knight aided in securing the film’s $100 million in advertising spending.
Now quickly lets have a look on 12 Mind-Bending Films Just like “The inception” that will blow your mind your mind:
be It doesn’t matter. Duncan Jones and Ben Ripley, the director and writer, race ahead at the speed of their commuter train, which, like the man on the Grecian urn, never stops moving. Colter’s challenge becomes more difficult. The city is getting closer and closer to being destroyed. Christina’s tone comes more solemn. The scientists’ desperation grows. Setting aside the fancy editing involving the time travel, what we have here appears to be hard science fiction. This is a threatened subgenre. In general, plot-driven films are under threat; much modern “science fiction” involves blowing things up. The best classic science fiction began with an idea and then explored its implications. Many films squander time getting to the point. However, Duncan Jones’s directorial debut, Source Code, gets right to the point. There is no beginning—there is a middle section, and then one of the most satisfying cinematic endings I have ever witnessed. The film begins with Colter Stevens, a US military pilot who awakens on a train to Chicago only to discover that he is in the body of someone else. His plane crashing after an encounter with Afghan militants is the last thing he remembers. How did he end up here?
As he tries to make sense of everything that is going on, a bomb goes off, and everything comes to an end. To his astonishment, he finds himself in an even more perplexing situation: he is injured, immobilised, and in some kind of cockpit. Was the train genuine? Is this true? I wish I could tell you more, but doing so would ruin the whole thing for you. Watch it if you haven’t already. It’s one of those films that will make you say, “huh?”
What if everything we see is a simulated reality? What if it’s not true? How can you tell what’s real from what’s not? The Matrix confronts these issues head on. Keanu Reeves plays Neo, a computer programmer with a sideline as a hacker, who receives mysterious messages that lead him to Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), the leader of a motley crew who live aboard a rocket-style craft. It turns out that the year is about 100 years in the future, rather than 1999. To keep machines “alive,” all of humanity has been converted into a source of energy. The Matrix is a massive computer programme that tricks humans into thinking they are still living in a world that has been destroyed. Special agents led by Smith (Hugo Weaving) seek out and destroy Morpheus and his followers.
3. THE MACHINIST
Trevor Reznik (Christian Bale) has been suffering from insomnia for a year in THE MACHINIST. He goes to work in an industrial factory, looking like an emaciated skeleton, and occasionally visits a prostitute, Stevie (Jennifer Jason Leigh). He also visits an airport cafe late at night and chats with a server named Marie (Aitana Sanchez-Gijon). Marie invites Trevor to join her and her son, Nicholas, for Mother’s Day (Matthew Romero). Trouble begins when Trevor meets a mysterious new worker, Ivan (John Sharian), and is immediately involved in an accident that costs a coworker’s arm (Michael Ironside). He also notices strange Post-It notes on his refrigerator depicting an ongoing “hangman” game. Is Trevor’s insomnia causing mental havoc, or is it something more serious?
Triangle concludes with its own unique explanation, one with a Sisyphean theme. Another of the film’s strong points is the strength of some of its visuals, the most notable example being Sally crawling through something I’ll leave unspoilt. When it appears, it is a terrifying sight. This movie deserved to be seen in theatres. Aside from the fact that it’s far superior to a lot of the horror that’s getting theatre play these days, it’s just a damn fine film that deserves to be seen in theatres. The Blu-ray is stunning! Regardless, Christopher Smith has provided us with a haunting treat that will linger in your mind long after the initial viewing. This is a must-see!
5. THE THIRTEENTH FLOOR-
Hannon Fuller, a computer scientist, has made a significant discovery. He’s about to tell his colleague, Douglas Hall, about his discovery, but knowing that someone is looking for him, the old man leaves a letter in the computer-generated parallel world his company has created (which looks like the 1930s and has seemingly real people with real emotions). The same night, Fuller is murdered in our world, and his colleague is suspected. Douglas discovers a bloody shirt in his bathroom and finds himself unable to recall what he was doing the night Fuller was murdered. He logs into the system in order to locate the letter, but he is met with the unexpected. The truth is more harsh than he could have imagined. A brilliant programmer has set a simulation in 1937. However, he is assassinated soon after creating it, and all of his secrets are buried with him. All that remains is a message that will determine the fate of everyone else in that world. Douglas Hall, the protagonist, is the genius programmer’s close friend and the prime suspect in his murder. The evidence against him is overwhelming. He eventually begins to doubt his own innocence. Is he the one who assassinated his own friend? Why was his friend assassinated? What is the point?
6. THE PRESTIGE
In the late 1800s, in London, Robert Angier, his beloved wife Julia McCullough, and Alfred Borden are friends and assistants to a magician. When Julia dies by accident during a performance, Robert blames Alfred and the two become enemies. Both become famous and rival magicians, sabotaging the other’s stage performance. When Alfred pulls off a successful trick, Robert becomes obsessed with revealing his competitor’s secret, which has tragic consequences.
7. THE TENET
Anyone who claims to have understood Tenet after only watching it once should be regarded with suspicion. Even if they say they’ve seen it three times, you should be sceptical. Christopher Nolan’s latest sci-fi spectacle is enigmatic to a fault and exhaustingly dense, leaving you with the uneasy feeling that you arrived 15 minutes late. Tenet, like the director’s previous smash hits — Inception and, to a lesser extent, Interstellar — demands, but does not encourage, repeat viewings. The prospect of having to sit down and be lectured to — Nolan’s preferred method of exposition — does not appeal to me right now. I can’t imagine not giving it another shot when the world settles down.
8. TIMECRIMES –
The name is self-explanatory. A man inadvertently travels back in time about an hour. To his horror, he discovers his past self on the verge of a series of disastrous events with unforeseeable consequences. Granted, the first few minutes of Timecrimes are tedious, but don’t let that deter you from seeing one of the strangest time-travel films ever. It’s quite amazing to see how they pull off such a subtle storey in such a resourceful and clever manner. In Nacho Vigalondo’s time-travel thriller, Hector observes a beautiful woman undressing in the woods near his property. While investigating, he discovers that she has been assaulted, and he is then attacked by a man whose head is wrapped in bandages. As he flees, Hector comes across a scientific facility where a scientist convinces him to hide in a time machine. He observes himself after travelling back in time for only a few hours.
Following Liam Neeson’s successful action thriller ‘Taken’ (2008), he became famous as an action star in Hollywood and redefined his picture among his fans. Dr. Martin Harris followed ‘Unknown,’ who after a road crash is struggling to demonstrate to the public his identity and recapture the events of the last day. ‘Unknown’ is also a fascinating psychological-action movie with Diane Kruger and January Jones from the start that takes the audience toward an unforeseen end through the unfolding of a well-constructed plot. Collet-Serra has put the script very cleverly on the screen to avoid unnecessary extent and to keep the film on track. Neeson makes ‘Unknown’ an aesthetic watch with his expert performance and his ability to hold the film alone. Although a mixed reply was received, Collet-Serra in future worked on several projects with Neeson.
10. SLEEEP DEALER –
Sleep Dealer portrays the United States as a cruel, unjust, and exploitative terrorist nation; it also examines soldier’s remorse, YouTube, and Janet Malcolm-esque ethical quandaries regarding the reporter-subject relationship through ancillary characters and subplots. With a lot on its mind, a small budget, and a first-time director to work with, the film has its fair share of issues: a convoluted plot, overt themes, cheesy special effects, and the whirr-and-buzz pacing of a 24 episode. However, it compensates for these flaws in some ways with a coherent allegory that emerges from a fully realized alternate reality. The dam, for example, works well as a metaphor for a border wall because it restricts access to resources. Most immigration films these days come across as feel-bad lessons in the hardships that Latino immigrants face; Sleep Dealer also demonstrates the difficulties that result from leaving home to find work, but it also has a lot of fun with it: the film’s Mexico is not only impoverished and overrun with armed rebels—also it’s infested with arachnid squeegeemen.
Bradley Cooper fits well into both versions of Eddie Morra, and director Neil Burger uses inventive visual effects to show how time telescopes for Eddie and solutions to problems appear before his eyes. A subplot about a murder, on the other hand, raises questions that aren’t answered, and all of the quasi-criminal stuff feels a little rushed. The film isn’t particularly good, but the premise is intriguing; it doesn’t really set out to investigate what such a pill might do to a person. “Limitless” only employs 15 to 20% of its brain. Still, that’s more than most movies manage. A classic case of a man believing he has found his genie in a bottle, only to have everything spiral out of control even though he believes he has everything he desired. The film has some incredible, even trippy visuals, which, combined with the relentless pacing and Bradley Cooper’s performance, keep you reasonably invested in this fun ride until the credits roll.
