That's just what I was saying before.

Ever since 28 Days Later Cillian Murphy has been among my top favorite actors. He's since given stellar performances in (among others) Intermission, The Wind That Shakes the Barley & Sunshine and gave my all time favorite Batman villain performance. And yes, he bright his emotional A-game to Inception.

And it is performances like Sunshine that should remind people that Chris Evans is also a talented actor, and should prove an excellent Captain America.

I know a few people who didn't like the film, but his crowning achievement acting-wise is still Breakfast on Pluto.

Those people should be beaten.

If we're going to talk about Batman villain performances, then Murphy's Scarecrow has to take a backseat to DeVito's Penguin, Pfieffer's Catwoman and Ledger's Joker. Those three are the gold standard, as far as I'm concerned.

In terms of pure silly entertainment I agree with the pair from Batman Returns, in terms of chilling reality Murphy wins, followed by Ledger. Nothing against Heath, I just find the slightly more grounded villain to be more unnerving and engaging to watch, its the same reason why I prefer Brian Cox' take on Hannibal Lector to Hopkins' admittedly more entertaining take.

I sincerely doubt that I'll ever enjoy a villain's portrayal in this genre more than Ledger's. I still find his scenes mesmerizing.

Agreed on the Cox > Hopkins comment.

Well at least there's someone out there that agree wih me on that one. Typically I get people acting all pissy when I say that, and then find out they've never even seen Manhunter.

I really enjoyed the hell out of that thing. A few questions of confusion, and I'll use spoiler tags just in case:

 
In the final scene, I was watching the totem intently, and while I was hoping they weren't setting it up to be the "duuuude, it's a dream", it sure came across like that. But I saw the wobble as well, so I'm going to take it as that it was real. Reading the other tidbits in this thread was great.

Although I do question the ending bit with Limbo Ken and Limbo Leo - when Ken reached for the gun, what was he supposed to be doing? I thought that was a key that it was going to shoot Leo, to put him into "real" Limbo (because he wasn't really in limbo, was he? Since he didn't "die" while under sedation?) rather than ...

Aw fuck, now I'm confusing myself trying to ask my question. How did Leo get them both out of Limbo? Did he have to come up with another kick somehow to get them back? Who was still round in the other levels to bring Leo back?

And while I'm asking questions - what was supposed to have happened to someone in Limbo? In the real world, would they just have been carted off to the loony bin in a straightjacket or something? They kept saying how your mind is lost in Limbo, but ... hmm.

I was completely delighted by the varying levels of the scenes, and oh man, there were a lot of visuals that just had me grinning. Loved, loved, LOVED the scene where Page's character realizes she can play with physics. Also loved the music at the end.

Ha! I had the exact same thought. "You know, I'm finally able to look at Leo and be annoyed by how babyish he looks." Watching this and Shutter Island so close together sealed the deal.
