This film is quite inspiring, not because of the film's subject matter, but instead how its development came out of the vision of architect Joseph Kosinski. The story is he was brought in to do the concept art for Disney, but after seeing the depth of his vision Disney decided to appoint him to direct the film. The film's plot line is a bit uninspiring, but the cinematography, costumes, graphics and music are all top notch.

Speaking of the soundtrack, which is a fantastic synthesis of electronic and orchestral textures into one piece, Daft Punk knocked that out of the park in one hit. Only a few artists have ever achieved that synthesis of mediums; The Bourne Trilogy scores are high on the list, as well as some other Hans Zimmer works.
