I mean, it all seemed kinda straight forward to me. Too much so actually. A heist movie playing out across a few different stages of consciousness featuring some seriously wooden dialogue and fairly one dimensional characters. I guess there's that nod towards ambiguity in the very last shot, but I had a hard time buying it since I never saw anything anywhere else in the move that called the reality of all this into question.
Like in The Dark Knight (Yeah, I was a dissenter on that one too. Liked Batman Begins and Memento though) I think Nolan has an incredible ability to cast this veneer of weighty seriousness over his movies that I don't know is actually backed up by anything that happens in the movies themselves. Important and meaningful things always seem to be going on, people talk like they are, but when I stop and think about it seems like a lot of talk, grimly serious acting and gorgeous visuals.
So please, dear blogging friends, help me justify the $12.50 plus $11 dollars for popcorn and soda I paid for this movie. Set me straight. Is there something I missed? Is there a deeper level here that I'm not seeing?
Oh by the way. I just saw that I have 50 followers now! Hurrah! Thanks for following everybody! It's great to have you all here!
