Unraveling the Onion of Inception

Inception is an awesome film, combination tragi-thriller-scifi-heist. Having just watched it for the second time, I had an odd compulsion, not to write a review, but to explore the events of the film in a visual manner for all to see. Well not so much events as the layers of dreams within dreams of the onion of a film that is Inception. 
I'm not sure this will make any sense to anyone that hasn't seen Inception, but nevertheless would like to declare a *SPOILER ALERT,* don't read on if you haven't seen the film unless you have an irrational non fear of spoilers.

Oh The Shame!

Directed by Steve McQueen
Full production details on imdb


a subtle and understated tale of modern isolation and need. beautifully atmospheric tragedy with perfect, sorrowful score.

McQueen's second feature as writer director is an intense and atmospheric tale of isolation. An adult tale in more than one sense it is a window into a rare intersection of the lives of estranged brother and sister Brandon (Michael Fassbender) and Sissy (Carey Mulligan). Both lost and alone, their lives teeter on the edge of sanity, both with needs and cravings, struggling to maintain normal human relations.
