Inception is a well-thought out, well-written and well-acted film, which has a clear idea and it is not high-concept nonsense. Christopher Nolan is one of the most intelligent and ground-breaking directors currently working in cinema today. This film was not made to get money out of people who would walk out the cinema and say "woah, what just happened, that's amazing, everyone I know has to see it!
". It was made because Nolan is an artist, and not a cog in the big-budget Hollywood machine. Box office=$825,532,764
