The first time I heard MIA's Bucky Done Gun was in a dream, seeping in from the radio that was on as I slept. It was so good it woke me up

Very thorough article about Inception.

The plot summary stuff can be skipped, but the Q & A at the end is quite interesting.

Needless to say, don't read it if you haven't watched the film.

It's also very thorough - I stopped reading after a few paragraphs. Not for reading after excel sheets. smile.gif

And for the motion thing - well, that wasn't clear. And it still isn't quite right. We will just have to agree to disagree, mate.

Here's a dedicated thread for discussion of Christopher Nolan's Inception by anyone who has seen it so that we don't clog up Cinemexperience too much with blocks of black spoiler tags. As such, you don't need to use spoiler tags, but anyone who wanders in who hasn't seen it should be wary of having it ruined.

I haven't read the article, I don't have time just yet, but I did see the headline and have heard of people being confused by it. I find it surprising as I didn't have any problem what so ever following it. Everything is explained almost to the point of becoming annoying, the plot is fairly straightforward within the context of the film and it's not like things happen that are so out of left field that you wouldn't know what was going on. Is this "confusion" just a media thing or are people really having difficulties with it?

I certainly wasn't confused, but there were details that escaped me on the first viewing - such as the specific reason why people could get stuck in limbo if they died in dreams - but the big picture was clear, even if the finer points required a second viewing to come into focus. I could understand people being confused by the ending, or at least frustrated by it, though.

I thought the ending was a bit of a cop out, but I thought it was the only way they would end it. I was a bit disappointed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt wasn't really used to his full potential but on the whole I enjoyed it.

I didn't dislike anything about it. I thought it was pretty, fun, exciting and entertaining. And really rather neat and straightforward, I don't get all these 'mind-bending' and 'confusing' tags in the media hype.


Blimey, people love to analyse, don't they... linky

I'd still like to think that it begins and ends in reality.

Yeah but the fact that there was a blue sky on Mars at the end makes you think eh?

...Sorry wrong film.

I'm definitely on that side of the argument, but I admire how Nolan creates enough of a sense of doubt about it to get people talking.

I was thinking about this after reading that the children are wearing different clothes at the end than at any other time during the film. The important thing isn't whether we see if the totem stops spinning but that Leo no longer bothers to check.

In other news,

Looking back over this thread, I realised that no one's really discussed the ending of the film in box major detail, which seems a bit odd given the nature of the ending, which is meant to generate discussion.

I'll go first. I don't think the ending of the film is a dream, or that Cobb is still stuck in limbo or anything like that. Obviously, I can see that is a possibility, but my gut reaction when watching the film was that it wasn't all a dream. Part of it was, of course, but not the part with the spinning top at the end.

I also agree with the argument that whether or not it is a dream is less important than the fact the Cobb walks away from the table without checking the top, since it means that he has reache a point where reality no longer matters to him.

I think this. I had exactly the same gut reaction.

I thinking it was the building and then unpeeling of the layers of each level that led me to this conclusion as well.
