sticky » an inception a/e rec list.

I think it's safe to say that Nolan's latest masterpiece, Inception, has pretty much devoured my brain. It has also, apparently, devoured the brain of everyone else because the fandom is growing at such an incredible rate, it's damn near impossible to keep up with. The same can be said for the Arthur/Eames side of it as well. So, in an effort to keep up with said fandom, I've compiled the following rec list.
