Christopher Nolan, "Inception"
Pro: How can it not? The blockbuster is a complex and philosophical accomplishment mostly due to Nolan's meticulously fashioned screenplay and direction. People are still trying to questioning the ending months after its release.
Con: Some viewers found the twist, turns and dream layers a bit too confusing. We assume most members of the writer's committee are smart enough to follow such plot devices, but that's the picture's most glaring concern at making the original five cut at this point.
