Dreams or rather Dream analysis appear very simple to begin with. Wake up in the morning, remember your dream and find a book which will tell you the interpretation of what you saw. Simple. Is it? Anyone who has read a little bit about dream interpretation will know how difficult it is to interpret a dream. No one but the one who has dreamt it can interpret it for him/herself. Inception is like that dream. There is no point telling you what the story is because it will not make any sense. You have to go out experience it and interpret it for yourself. It felt like I was in some hypnotherapy session and Nolan the hypnotist is taking me from one level to another alpha, beta, theta,delta... Dont know how many more. Ive always believed that the last shot is the most important shot of a film and with this film Nolan just reinforces that belief. Just like the top that keeps spinning throughout the film he spins your mind and traps you in a maze that does not allow you to get out. After the movie ends you will be in a state of limbo, like they say in the film. At the end of it all it is a love story. Throughout the film one feels like he is watching a magic trick. I have seen 6 out of his 7 feature length films but this one just tops everything he has ever made. Ya, it tops dark knight too. It took him almost 8 years to write this, it will take a lifetime for us to forget it. Tonight in my dreams I hope to find my answers.
Final few words: Take yours and your neighbors brains; still youll require more brains to make sense of this film. Nolan is the Freud and Jung of our times. God created the world in 6 days. Nolan has created his dream world in 2.28 hours.
**** (awesome, mindblowing, fantastic)
