5.0 out of 5 stars Do I really need to write anything here?
Okay, if you've seen this film, you'd have already realized by now how utterly astonishing it is. Ergo, even after seeing it at the cinema twice, the script still reads as fast and as exciting as if you were reading it for the first time. It's proof that the world's best director (in my opinion) is at the top of his game, creating truly original and inspiring work that...

3.0 out of 5 stars Watch the film with subtitles
The large portion of the book is the dialogue featured in the motion picture which you would expect from a screenplay. In addition, there are storyboard sketches in between the dialogue text, as well as written descriptions of the action sequences and concept art. Essentially, you would probably get a better experience by watching the film with the subtitles on, as...

5.0 out of 5 stars Do I really need to write anything here?, 7 Sep 2010
This review is from: Inception: The Shooting Script (Paperback)
Okay, if you've seen this film, you'd have already realized by now how utterly astonishing it is. Ergo, even after seeing it at the cinema twice, the script still reads as fast and as exciting as if you were reading it for the first time. It's proof that the world's best director (in my opinion) is at the top of his game, creating truly original and inspiring work that respects its audience.

It is, of course, a great read, allowing you to look at how Christopher Nolan pieced together the puzzle that is Inception. It's a shooting script but is more or less the same as the final film, though it does have some minor details that a true fan of the film should take interest in. Plus, the small interview between Nolan and his brother, Jonathan, is an interesting look into the mind of the director and his thought processes making the film. And the other small elements are nicely done. (Examples of storyboards show the development process a little further, and a faux instruction manuel for the dream device only helps you appreicate the hard work put into the film further.)

Otherwise, it could be improved by more! A bit like 'The Art of The Dark Knight' book that really gave you a depth to the process as a whole. Maybe one day...

Until then, thank you, Chris... I cannot wait to see what you do next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inception - Shooting Script, 11 Nov 2014
This review is from: Inception: The Shooting Script (Paperback)
Length:: 1:04 Mins

As a big fan of "Inception", I thought it would be nice to own the shooting script. I do own about a dozen scripts in book format, and this one is the best -- mainly because it includes some bonus material (which I've listed below) that adds to the reading experience.

Also included as a bonus:
- Interview/Discussion w/ Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan
- Nolan's Sketch of the Heist Timeline & Dream Structure
- Storyboard Sequences
- Concept Art - printed in color
- PASIV (dream sharing device) manual

5.0 out of 5 stars A real script..., 26 Dec 2010
This review is from: Inception: The Shooting Script (Paperback)
This is just what I was looking for. This is the proper script! It includes an interview from Christopher Nolan, original story boards, and the entire script! It is almost word for word from the movie, exept from some scenes that were changed. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dream of a script, 21 Dec 2011
Those who buy movie scripts are usually a very specialist people as many don't see the appeal in owning a script you can read as opposed to watching a movie instead and admittedly I was doubtful as this was the first movie script I bought. However I was surprised by how interesting it is to delve into the world of the movie before it was immortalized on screen. You get a clear idea of how Christopher Nolan's amazing mind works as well as the various script-writers and if anything, instead of detracting the pleasure from the dream-spanning adventure it will make you appreciate the incredible movie even more.
