It is spoiler free...

So if anyone has now looked at Dave Poland's 'review' even though he doesn't think the film is great I appreciate his sensitivity and admiration towards Nolan and what he was trying to accomplish.
I don’t really want to write this review.

You see, Christopher Nolan is a profoundly talented artist and he is trying really hard to make a deeply profound movie here. He hired excellent actors who give excellent performances. And not just the much-promoted 3 leads. The supporting cast and many of the somewhat surprising small roles are terrific. Much of the film is strikingly beautiful. And there is a lot of really good stuff in the film.

5 Fresh, 4 Rotten. Jeez.... And yet it still has a 7/10 score.

Seems like it's super love/hate.

Would that change if Spielberg directed it? Hmmm... Anyway, nothing gives me more hope than reviewists saying it's heavy on the melancholy and sentiment - means I'll probably like it.
