Inception, and other film notes

Watched Inception again last night, and enjoyed it, but... here are some good articles about it:
17 criticisms of Inception
A Q&A with Nolan
A comparison with Tarkovsky's Solaris

This month I've also watched:
Batman Begins and The Dark Knight back to back - just because I could :)
Alpha Dog - a banal film about the banality of evil, 3/5
The Illusionist - well put together 3/5
Laurel Canyon - a little bit of 'so what?' 3/5
The Way of the Dragon - more Bruce Lee nostalgia 3/5
Hot-tub Time Machine - funny 4/5
Primer - too intellectual for my tastes 3/5
Dog Soldiers - Brilliant! 5/5
The Killer Inside Me - misogynistic twaddle 3/5
True Grit (original) - John Wayne nostalgia! 4/5
From Paris with Love - excellent chemistry between two leads; plot was meretricious twaddle 3/5
Jonah Hex - garbage 2.5/5
The Switch - amusing, twee, could have been a much more adventurous and spiky film 3/5
No Impact Man - see this which prompted me to watch it 3/5 (as a film)
The Ghost - very good, although, having read the book, I knew what was coming 4/5

  1. Hey, have you seen Dogville? (It didn't turn up in a blog search, so I don't think you've posted on it). I saw it last night and think you'd love it. Very theologically thought-provoking.
