Could You Run That By Me One More Time?

At Slate, Jonah Weiner's write-up on 'Inception' is filled with sentences like:

Added up, Inception is something of a love letter to some of Nolan's favorite films, and his extracting, forging, architecting heroes are not simply culture-bludgeoned victims, but emblems of that liberated Postmodern figure, the remixer, who bends and subverts mass culture to his will.


There is a certain claustrophobia to this vision, too—a sense that there's nothing new under the sun, even in dreams, and that mass culture has co-opted our inner projectors.

So, if you're into that kind of thing head on over.
