Family-Faith Film Review: Inception
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Inception—Ingenious sci-fi brainteaser in which, at the behest of a powerful CEO (Ken Watanabe), a corporate spy (Leonardo DiCaprio) who uses “shared dreaming” to extract secrets from the minds of sleeping executives leads a team of skilled collaborators (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy and Dileep Rao) on a raid into the subconscious of the heir (Cillian Murphy) to a rival business. Writer-director Christopher Nolan achieves a tour de force of spectacle and suspense that eventually involves four adventures unfolding simultaneously at different levels of consciousness, though his crafty action tale is rife with explosions and gunplay and engages the imagination more than the heart. Much violence, some of it bloody, several uses of profanity, a few crude and crass terms. A-III — adults. (PG-13) 2010
Local Oregon foresters and craftsmen offer Woodturning Blanks for woodworking projects. Display your skills with a lathe by starting from pen blanks or bowl blanks and creating beautiful artwork. Your options expand even more when you consider the options with burl wood and wood slabs.
Finally, if you live in California, be sure to discuss your options at a Sacramento probate lawyer related to your estate and trust. Legal planning is critical, and having an attorney who comprehends probate administration and law will be invaluable!
