Inception: The Shooting Script Book Review
About the Book: Inception, writer-director Christopher Nolan’s seventh feature film, joins the epic scope of The Dark Knight with the narrative sophistication of Memento. The story of a group of thieves who specialize in invading the mind through one’s dreams, Inception explores the Nolan’s signature psychological themes of memory, paranoia, and self-doubt as the protagonist, Dom Cobb, is pitted against a hostile subconscious spurred on by personal demons and regrets from the past. In a conversational preface, Nolan discusses with brother and frequent collaborator, Jonah, the genesis of the idea for the film and the decade-long process it took to write it. Detailing the results of Nolan’s efforts, Inception: The Shooting Script includes key storyboard sequences, full-color concept art, and an appendix on the workings of the mysterious Pasiv Device that Cobb and his fellow extractors use to initiate the dream-share. An exclusive exploration of a highly original concept, Inception: The Shooting Script is the record of a writer-director at the height of his craft.
Our Take: Inception was a film that was recieved in a very mixed way. You either loved it or hated it. We loved it. This is the second shooting script we're checking out from Insight Editions. This one is also softcover and features a cityscape on the cover with the inception logo built in. This script book is a bit more stripped down than the Red Riding Hood title, with more traditional white pages and script with storyboards built-in. The book does feature some select full-color images in this 208 page collector's item. One of the coolest features of the book is something any fan of the film is sure to enjoy! It includes an appendix with a great look at the operating instructions for the PASIV device! We definately recommend this one.
