Film critic Peter Travers first to review and praise Christopher Nolan's Inception

To say INCEPTION is a highly anticipated film around these parts is, frankly, one hell of an understatement. Add to the fact that we're having a pretty underwhelming summer movie season, and suddenly Chris Nolan's cinematic bit of mindf*ckery - with its big budget spectacle and stellar cast - has become THE film we hope will save it all.

Well this will get your motor running. Rolling Stone film critic Peter Travers is the first to review INCEPTION, and his words are pretty much what we as movie fans have all wanted to hear. The full review is not yet online, but The New York Post quotes the first paragraph from Rolling Stone magazine. It's enough to give you a taste, and best of all, it doesn't get into any spoilers. Here's the quote:

"The mind-blowing movie event of the summer arrives just in time to hold back the flow of Hollywood sputum that's been sliming the multiplex. 'Inception'...will be called many things, starting with James Bond Meets 'The Matrix.' You can feel the vibe of Ridley Scott's 'Blade Runner' in it, and Nolan's own 'Memento' and 'The Dark Knight.' But 'Inception' glows with a blue-flame intensity all its own. Nolan creates a dream world that he wants us to fill with our own secrets. I can't think of a better goal for any filmmaker. Of course, trusting the intelligence of the audience can cost Nolan at the box office. We're so used to being treated like idiots. How to cope with a grand-scale epic, shot in six countries at a reported cost of $160 million, that turns your head around six ways from Sunday? Dive in and drive yourself crazy, that's how.''

INCEPTION f*cks minds everywhere on July 16th.
Extra Tidbit: Do you guys really think "trusting the intelligence of the audience [will] cost Nolan at the box office" as Travers suggests?
