More food for thought

Inception DiCaprio NolanI told you this Inception debate would run and run. Here's a very measured and reasonable explanation from Dileep Rao, Inception's concoctor of sedatives and potions. According to Dileep, it's not all a dream...

Yeah, I like that explanation a lot and it's what I thought of when the film ended.

Devin Faraci over at CHUD has a really good, indepth analysis/theories about the film:

I read that Devin piece the other day, as well as the "Inception of Cobb" theory that's doing the rounds, and they both have their merits, but I have to say Dlleep's assessment is a sound one.

I love the fact we're still talking and thinking about the film. I hope its continues to have legs at the box office too...

J.D. said...

Well, they said it's box office tally for Monday was very strong and that it's being propelled by word-of-mouth as a must-see film. It should be interesting to see how it holds up against SALT.

But I agree with you that it's great to see people still talking about the film esp. in this day and age where so many films are forgettable. This one stays with you for sure.

It's gonna shift a lot of units come DVD and BR, that's for sure.

...and all of this despite sticking two fingers up at 3D!

Mark Salisbury said...

Indeed.

J.D. said...

hah! Yeah, sticking it to 3D and breaking it off. I love it.

Hey, I dunno if you've come across this, but Salon.com has a pretty exhaustive piece on INCEPTION and what it all means. Definitely worth a read:
