On "Inception"

From The Dispatch:
It's a staggering technical achievement, but it holds its audience at arms' length - its labyrinthine plot keeps the mind working and the sense reeling in a way that is consistently entertaining, but never quite fully compelling. Nolan's craft is very easy to respect and in many ways be in awe of, but he is far more adept at blowing the mind than rending the heart. "Inception" is a highly effective thriller, but it's almost coldly calculated, relying on its admittedly ingenious conceit to carry it, even if that only goes so far.
