Inception – a challenging movie
Inception has been getting rave reviews. It’s certainly the sort of film you’d want to see a second time. In fact, this second viewing phenomenon is very widespread, as people return to work out the intricacies of the plot, not to mention looking for the many hidden visual and musical puns which have been deliberately embedded in the film. This is what the industry calls a ‘rehook’. (How can we make aspects of Christian and evangelistic ministry, offline or online, have this ‘rehook’, ‘sticky’ attraction to return?)
Damaris have just published their analysis of this thought-provoking story. Here’s a great way to use popular culture as a conversation-provoking starting point, online in blogs or Facebook, or offline in youth groups or with work colleagues. You can click on the AddThis button on the Damaris site to add this to your own Facebook page. Then encourage people to start commenting and discussing the movie.
CT has posted a helpful longer review.
Incidentally, I’m looking forward to the release of The Illusionist later this month.
