I just sent my first Staff Pick for my shelver job at The BP Library.

I hope to do some more Staff Picks in the future, and I hope to start sharing more things like this in the future here on my blog.

Normally I would like to do a longer write-up, but you have to keep these shorter; which is probably a good thing because it will save me time and help me get to the point. 😀

What Is It?

What Is It About?

The film Inception is about a man named Dom Cobb (played by the actor Leonardo DiCaprio) who forms a team to complete a job that he was hired for.

They have to enter several layers of dreams using a device that allows dream sharing; so that they can plant an idea in their target’s subconscious that will affect the target’s life once the target wakes up in the real world.

This is how Warner Bros. describes this movie:

Nominated for eight Academy Awards, including “Best Picture,” and winner of four, Inception—directed by acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan—features an international cast in an original sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams.

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious, during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable.

Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved.

Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption.

One last job could give him his life back, but only if he can accomplish the impossible: inception.

Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb, and his team of specialists, have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea, but to plant one.

If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime.

But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move.

An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.
