Product description

"Inception," writer-director Christopher Nolan's seventh feature film, joins the epic scope of "The Dark Knight" with the narrative sophistication of "Memento." The story of a group of thieves who specialize in invading the mind through one's dreams, "Inception" explores the Nolan's signature psychological themes of memory, paranoia, and self-doubt as the protagonist, Dom Cobb, is pitted against a hostile subconscious spurred on by personal demons and regrets from the past. In a conversational preface, Nolan discusses with brother and frequent collaborator, Jonah, the genesis of the idea for the film and the decade-long process it took to write it. Detailing the results of Nolan's efforts, "Inception: The Shooting Script" includes key storyboard sequences, full-color concept art, and an appendix on the workings of the mysterious Pasiv Device that Cobb and his fellow extractors use to initiate the dream-share. An exclusive exploration of a highly original concept, "Inception: The Shooting Script" is the record of a writer-director at the height of his craft.

Review quote

""Inception" gets the art movie treatment, with a really nice paperback edition of the screenplay. There are eight pages of color concept art, and a ton of storyboards -- plus a few of Nolan's own handwritten notes and diagrams. And there's an ultra-revealing introduction, in which Nolan gets interviewed by his brother Jonathan. For anybody interested in the creative process behind this film, this book is pretty much a must-have." - Charlie Jane Anders, Gawker Media,
