I won't give anything away, but it's another good one. Christopher Nolan has a hell of a winning streak going. I don't know if it's my favorite of his films, but I could easily see plenty of people saying it's theirs.

1. I'm planning on seeing Inception again in a couple days, and I'm also showing The Prestige this week to friends. For now I'm ranking The latter as Nolan's best work (as well as Wally Pfister's), but we'll see how I feel after those viewings.

2. Cox >>>> Hopkins. I'm not a fan of the mannered hamminess of Hopkins and I find Cox scarier. But I find Ledger's perf as joker to be more like Cox than Hopkins; it's a pretty naturalistic, albeit showy inhabitation of the character IMO, and I feel that Ledger was operating on a near-Brando level in TDK. With all due respect to DeVito and Pfeiffer, both possibly the best they e ever been, they're not even in the same ballpark as what Ledger pulled off.

3. Cut a hole in the box.

Careful . . . that can either be tremendous praise or a harsh putdown.

when someone dies on a regular dream level, they run the risk off falling into Limbo. Once you're in Limbo, dying will wake you up. So Watanabe reaching for the gun was likely to shoot DiCaprio and then himself

Comparing someone with the greatest actor who ever lived, and who was a chameleon believable as every character he played, was definitely meant as a compliment to Ledger.

...probably not more than 100%. Fuck's sake, you're amateur.

And he knows that, too, but he has a bit of a screw loose and that compels him to reply like that. You'll get used to it.

Wasn't it the case that dying generally wakes you up in any level, but the extreme sedatives were what made dying leading to limbo possible? Weren't Cobb and Mal using those sorts of sedatives when they spent all that time in limbo? At least that's what I got from it.

It seems to me like you're the EGGSPERT, Mark.

Oh, okay! I totally missed that plot point in the movie. Thanks!

Huh. Good question.

 
Did they just stay asleep that long because no one was there to give them a "kick"? Did they ever say how long they were asleep, while decades had passed in the dream? I don't remember them saying anything about sedatives. But it must not have been very long - they had a life and kids in the real world, so it's not like they could just check out for that long.

Although they probably did mention the sedatives in relation to them, and I just forgot or missed it.
