"Inception" star Joseph Gordon-Levitt was involved in a glass-shattering, arm-shredding bicycle wreck while filming a movie this weekend ... but despite the blood pouring out of his body, dude still thought it was "f**king cool."

on Sunday ... shot moments after he slammed his bike into the back of a taxi cab while filming a movie called "Premium Rush" in New York.

Levitt also wrote about the crash on his website, saying, "Busted through the rear window of a cab.  Luckily got my elbows up.  Coulda been way worse.  No, but it was my fault, I was going too fast."
