INCEPTION (2 of 2)
Manipulation of the mind is near impossible if the observer is aware that the manipulation is taking place.
"Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one" (quote, Warner Bros. summary of Inception). Ironically while you are watching this great 'impossible' crime taking place on screen you yourself, the viewer, are getting an idea implanted into your subconscious - Suicide is good.
Do not watch this movie without being aware that it is an attempt to do just what it claims to be exploring. Inception is a very wicked and cruel movie, especially for a young impressionable teenage generation, an R rating would have been more appropriate.
