Okay folks, I FINALLY saw Inception and it has totally fucked my brain up. I cannot stop thinking about it.
Since extremely bright people visit this blog, and I’m sure some of them have seen the movie, can anyone please answer for me (If someone hasn’t seen the movie, you can go ahead and read because the “spoilers” won’t/can’t do jackshit to “spoil” this movie for you; on the other hand, you should be rushing away RIGHT ABOUT NOW to go catch it):
1. From the fourth level of the sub-conscious (the level at which Cobb meets the aged Saito), how does Saito come back? Because he’s dead in the third level right? So, he’s supposed to go into limbo.. which is why Cobb finds him at the fourth level… that’s fine! But does the fact that he wakes up fine, mean that the sedative has worn off?
2. Now the top remaining spinning at the end has been left open for interpretation. But the speculation has largely remained around whether Cobb’s still in a dream/ reality/ limbo. Is there a case that the spinning top doesn’t matter because it’s not HIS totem in the first place? It’s his wife’s!
3. This might be damn stupid. How does Cobb know that Fischer will be found with Mal’s projection, after he dies at the third level?
Pleaaaaaaaaaase answer, someone! Before I go crazy.. or before the weekend, when I’m watching it again!
Tip: Don’t scrounge the internet and don’t beseech Google. I’ve broken my head enough. There are hundreds of theories out there, but by now, people are really making their own movie up 😀 I want to know if there’s something in the movie that explains these things, which I might have missed or which my IQ isn’t.. well.. suitable for? Thankee, in advance! 🙂
