Inception

So I went and saw Inception tonight.  wtf.

the ending was kinda lame, but it was a good movie.  did you see it?  were you able to keep track of wtf was going on?  I was able to keep track, but they kinda lost me in the last 5 seconds of the film…

    I loved this movie, and yes it seemed like the top was about to topple, but I’m guessing Nolan wanted to at least plant the doubt that Cobb really got his kids back in our minds. I kept saying under my breath during that last scene, “C’mon, just fall over.” When it cut away before it actually happened I laughed. I’m glad it at least made it seem like it was going to topple, but I’ve talked to people who don’t think it fell over at all. Other people have pointed out the top is not Cobb’s totem, but his… Read more »

    He is the only living person who knows it, meaning it does work.

    That’s a good point.

    He told Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe knew about it, and his subconscious representation of his wife who kept fucking things up for him also knew about it. I’m also going to assume Joseph Gordon-Levitt knew about it too because this is the worst kept secret ever.

    Remember, it didn’t matter if you talked about it or showed it to other people, you didn’t let them hold it or inspect it thoroughly. That way no one would truly know the weight, know about the small ding on the side etc. etc.

    I saw it last night, and was in awe that they are still able to make such original and awesome movies. Usually every movie plot is a copy of a copy of a copy.

    The end of the film was the way it was to create discussion and to fuck with your brain more. SUCCESS!!!! Best film of the year thus far. Finely an intelligent and original film that makes the audience think.

    The top wobbled.

    I was more impressed by the execution than the premise.

    With the years that go into planning something like this a logic flaw isn’t likely.

    There’s a neat trick to the music. Two different tracks used are the same song. One is just sped up and louder but its the exact same song.

    I guess he’d make a better movie if there was somebody like Darabont working with him on the script. That might give his characters the depth and personality he can’t seem to write well.

    Did anybody else notice that the “kick” music cue was “Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien,” meaning “No, I don’t regret anything,” a recurring theme throughout the movie? Incidentally, Marion Cotillard (Mal) played the woman who originally sang it (Edith Piaf) in La Vie En Rose.
    I thought that was clever. What does everyone think of Dom’s totem being his wedding band? He only wears it during certain scenes…

    The ring is only on his finger while he’s dreaming. Because, like he says “In my dream we’re still together.”

    Ye good movie, top should have fell over to not fall into the spooky handy waving endings we constantly see now, yea we get it – endings used to be true conclusions and now, your amazing ability to write a script/direct is BETTER THAN THAT! *spooky hands* *sigh* – but not too hung up on it, enjoyed it a lot.

    I say it doesn’t matter whether the top fell or not, as – at least in the dream – it’s as much a projection as anything else. If you really, deeply, subconsciously believe you’re in reality, then it will respond as such, even if it’s still a dream. The trick is, then, to fool someone into believing the dream wholeheartedly, and I think that’s what the movie was really all about — Cobb’s team performing inception on Cobb, and it happened right in front of our eyes. The team realizes that Cobb (via Mal) is a threat to their work,… Read more »

    This was the exact outcome my friend and I came to after seeing it.

    This is an interesting take on it, thanks for taking the time to lay it all out.

    That’s what I thought as well. (Just saw it – sorry if this thread is dead). I wasn’t sure I was right, up until I realized the kids never aged, which is something I picked up from Beautiful Mind.

    Wow just read the last post I’ll have to watch it again but in end I hoped the top would fall but I believe he was dreaming anyway not sure if there was a reference to how long he has been away from his kids but I’m pretty sure it must have been couple of years and in the last scene his kids never aged they looked the same as in his memory.

    This is pretty dumb, but I really enjoyed how Arthur got Ariadne to kiss him, as if that would convince Fischer’s subconscious that they were not intruders.
