(mini) Movie Review: Inception

Am I awake?... Or am I dreaming?   

Recently saw Inception (starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt & young Canadian actress Ellen Page) and can't "wake" (I mean "wait") to see it again! 

One word: "Brilliant"!

"Astounding", even. 

With suspense, thrills and action, definitely makes you "consciously think" as you watch. 

I've read some comparing it to The Matrix and Vanilla Sky. For me it was less Matrix, more Dark City-esque! That is to say, in terms cinematographic mood and feel, not plot, as this plot was truly original.

The ending of this film, left me feeling similar to that of Shutter Island's ... with more questions than answers and wanting more.

Eye openingly Brilliant! 

Would indeed, "dream" of seeing it again! 

"Tattoo" Poem, published.

I know this is a bit after the fact (but I was preoccupied and hence did not get a chance to send it out sooner).
My poem Tattoo was published in the June, premiere edition of Dark Eye Glances. Said poem can be read here: http://tinyurl.com/DarkEyeGlances .
This is my first "official" publication (as opposed to say a contribution). I signed an author agreement and everything, giving them 1st publishing rights.

I invite you all to read the poem and give feedback on their FB page:

(As per that which is written on their website, re: "Readers are also welcome to submit recommendations for specific poets and poetry. We want to know what our readers like so we can offer them more.")

Next year, my poem, among those from others submitted throughout the year, will be considered for inclusion in the 2011 "Dark Eye Glances" anthology.


The anthology will be in print (and for sale on book shelves). More on that when the time comes.
