Inception by Christopher Nolan( visu )

Dom Cobb 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

Segunda Guerra Mundial (1939-1945). Rodada íntegramente en japonés, la película ofrece la versión nipona de la batalla de Iwo Jima, el episodio más cruento de la guerra del Pacífico, en el que murieron más de 20.000 japoneses y 7.000 estadounidenses. El objetivo de la batalla para los japoneses era conservar un islote insignificante, pero de gran valor estratégico, pues desde allí defendían la integridad de su territorio. El mismo año, Eastwood dirigió también ''Banderas de nuestros padres'', que narra la misma batalla desde el punto de vista norteamericano. La versión japonesa muestra cómo el general Tadamichi Kuribayashi (Ken Watanabe) organizó la resistencia a través de un sistema de túneles. (FILMAFFINITY)
