Do you think Nolan poured all his skills and passion as a filmmaker into Inception?
It wasn't a monumental film but it was still pretty great. Essentially, the second half of the film is a 10 hour plane ride, but for poor Saito it's 60 years or something. It has an open-ended ending like some of my favourite films (Taxi Driver). Some of the dialogue is expository and clunky, but the action is great, and every part of it is a lot better than TDKR.
I don't know why they all weren't floating in zero-gravity in the snowscape…but the set pieces for each dream stage were pretty. Cobb and Fischer's characters were the most fully fleshed out, and I actually got emotionally invested and got a bit of feels when Fischer cried at the folded paper pinwheel in the safe, as well as with the Mal storyline where Cobb's inception ends up making her kill herself.
Basically, it's enjoyable as fuck. After re-watching it for the first time since it's release, I think it's my favourite Nolan film. He's not the greatest filmmaker, but you can tell he really pushed himself with Inception, put a lot of heart in it. At the very least, it's an unconventional, well made heist movie that's still a hell of a lot better than all the reboots + prequels/sequels that were and are flooding the market.
tl:dr. why no zero-g in the snowscape and limbo? shouldn't the weightlessness apply to all layers?
