Each week, we're giving Marquee readers and iReporters the floor to tell us what they think about the latest buzzed-about movie.
This weekend we're setting our sights on "Inception," Christopher Nolan's movie that, as one of our producers put it, has real ideas in it, unlike some of Hollywood's other fare.
The L.A. Times called the film "popular entertainment with a knockout punch so intense and unnerving it'll have you worrying if it's safe to close your eyes at night," and Roger Ebert believes that "Inception" "does a difficult thing," as he wrote in his review. "It is wholly original, cut from new cloth, and yet structured with action movie basics so it feels like it makes more sense than (quite possibly) it does."
New York Magazine critic David Edelstein isn't as impressed. "With its dreams, dreams within dreams, and dreams within dreams within dreams, Christopher Nolan’s Inception manages to be clunky and confusing on four separate levels of reality," Edelstein starts his review. "For the record, I wanted to surrender to this dream," he went on. "I didn’t want to be out in the cold, alone. But I truly have no idea what so many people are raving about."
So who do you agree with? Did Nolan craft something that's unlike anything you've seen in the theater lately, or was it a bit like being in a bad dream? Let us know with an iReport, and we'll round up the verdict on Monday.
