Edison - The Current War (The Current War)
USA, 2017 | Dauer: 105min | FSK: 6 | Regie: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon Darsteller: Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Tom Holland

Three brilliant visionaries set off in a charged battle for the future in this fascinating period drama that tells the epic story of the cutthroat competition that literally lit up the modern world. Cumberbatch ("The Imitation Game", "Doctor Strange") is Thomas Edison, the celebrity inventor on the verge of bringing electricity to New York City with his radical new technology. On the eve of triumph, his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse (Shannon; "The Shape of Water"), who believes he and his partner, the upstart genius Nikolai Tesla (Hoult; "X-Men"), have a far better idea for how to rapidly electrify America. As Edison and Westinghouse grapple for who will power the nation, they spark one of the first and greatest corporate feuds in American history, establishing for future Titans of Industry the need to break all the rules. A solid, engrossing, and beautifully designed film powered by an outstanding cast and an intriguing, history-inspired story.

Inception (10th Anniversary) (Inception)
USA, 2010 | Dauer: 148min | FSK: 12 | Regie: Christopher Nolan Darsteller: Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard

In 2010, visionary mastermind Christopher Nolan (»The Dark Knight«, »Interstellar«, »Dunkirk«), one of the most alluring and enigmatic film makers of contemporary cinema, crafted this psychological sci-fi action film about a professional thief who possesses the power to steal information by entering into the dreams of others. In the world of corporate espionage, Dom Cobb (DiCaprio; »Titanic«) is thereby the ultimate weapon. But even weapons have their weakness, and when Cobb loses everything, he's forced to embark on one final mission in a desperate quest for redemption. This time, Cobb won't be harvesting an idea, but sowing one. Smart, innovative, and thrilling, this wildly ingenious chess game is a conceptual tour de force that is awesomely original, hugely intelligent and, above all, enormously enjoyable. A hugely successful knockout of a film that was awarded with four Academy Awards!
