Inception the idea to plot an idea into a person mind and make them believe this is real by alternating there dream state. Dominick “Dom” Cobb an expert thieve and master extractor are approached by business man Saito to perform what is known as Inception to make a rival business man to break apart the company he runs by planting an idea in his head. This one last job could be Cobb’s last hope in getting his life back if he succeeds.
Inception is the story of Dominick Cobb and how he must use his skills as a thief to get his life back that he had to leave. Cobb is given the opportunity to get his life back if he can complete one job for a business man name Saito who would like for a rival to get rid of their business through the process of inception. Cobb assembles a team that he trusts his friend Arthur and a team of skilled individuals must insert an idea into a man conscious and make him believe that this is his own thinking. The team comes up with a plan that creates three levels in the mind that they must transcend in order to plant the idea and overcome the dangers of the sub conscious threats inside the mind. Throughout the movie Cobb is battling his demons and his wife Mal who is a part of Cobb’s consciousness who poses a threat to not only Cobb but the plan altogether.
The film is presented non-linearly and is meant to show how Cobb has had to overcome his demons and to show how he must battle the choice he made in the past and how he has become the person he is. The film could have been shown in a linear fashion but I think the movie would have not have had a sense of what could happen next the story telling in the nonlinear fashion gives it more depth and perception of what kind of man cobb is.
