I know, I find it interesting that the previews say "your mind is the scene of a crime" and that inception plants an idea in your head, and it's a virus and grows.

Nolan did just that. I'm seeing it a 4th in a couple of hours.

Also, check this out about the music, this just makes the film even more creepy -

Finally saw it and pretty much loved it! What beautiful film-making.

The only character/actor I didn't care too much about was Ariadne/Ellen Page. I should preface this by saying that for the entirety of Juno I wanted to punch her in the face so it's possible I came in with negative feelings. But I think she was not on par with the others and also Cotillard is so stunning and gorgeous and luminescent that she outshone her literally visibly in every scene they had together.

My mind tells me that the totem falls over. My heart thinks it keeps spinning. I'll have to see this again.

Mostly I loved the Paris streetscape and am super pumped that I'll be there before this week ends.

WOW, that's pretty brillant it if was intentional!


BTW: I can't believe I'm saying this, but it was even better the second time around. I wasn't as mentally exhausted trying to keep up, I was nice and relaxed, enabling me to catch things I missed the first time around. Glad it's #1 for a 2nd week in a row

 
I now believe that Cobb probs wasn't dreaming, his wedding ring was is totem not Mal's top. He wasn't wearing it in the final scene, which means he wasn't in a dream

Are you sure? Nolan does a clever job hiding the left hand from view in that last scene. I haven't been able to get a clear look as to whether the ring is there or not.


Going a 5th time tomorrow and 6th time Wednesday. Best film I've ever seen. Hands down.

 
This is a theory from Nolanfans.com forums: There's are three scenes out of the entire film that kept me wondering the most. One is the opening scene, the 2nd is returning back to the opening scene later close to the end of the film, and the scene finale.

At first glance, the limbo scenes appear to be a continuation between the two. How I found odd is that the dialogue is slightly different. After watching this film 3 times with an intent on paying close attention to the two scene of them in limbo, I came to the conclusion that they ARE indeed two different scenes altogether making it appear as if they're one continuous scene. In other words, it's a REOCCURRING DREAM between the two. Evidence of this is directly from its dialogue. Saito begins off the 1st scene as saying "you come here to kill me?". However, on the later scene he begins off saying it differently "you here to come kill me?" Same words, but different arrangement. Then Saito in the 1st scene starts of remembering a man from a "half remembered dream". However, in the later the movie the conversation is different with Saito starting of saying he remembers a man, but only this time Cobb finishes his sentence by saying "from a half remembered dream" as if Cobb remembers this conversation before, and then continues on finishing Saito's sentences from here on out until realizing that they're indeed in limbo.

I believe those two scenes are an allegory to purgatory. Cobb and Saito are awaiting for their ultimate fate, and each time the same dreams of them in limbo reoccur. I believe the final scene is Cobb's mind being brain dead due to his inability to escape from limbo and his final dream is him approaching heaven or an allegory to heaven. If anybody knows the story about Jacob's ladder, it tells you that Jacob fell asleep and had a DREAM that he climbed a ladder that reaches to heaven. I believe that's exactly what happened to Cobb.

Not sure if that's exactly who you want to share your tastes with.

And what's your favorite film, GAF?

Nice to see some support of the undervalued African film industry.

Toy Story 3's in the Top 10, too? Jesus Christ. I know it's all about mathematics and numbers of votes and stuff and isn't reflective of the films against each other, but that's still ridiculous. Shawshank being #1, while I do like it, doesn't surprise me in the least though.

Shawshank gets slapped around a bit here, and though it sure aint the best film of all time....but I'd be lying if I said that I didn't enjoy it.
