I just watched Inception, and it was also amazing. We're going to watch it again sometime this coming week.
I saw it for the first time Saturday night. My best friend called me, said she'd watched it the night before and wanted to see it again, thought I would enjoy it, and her family was all going to be gone for various reasons so thought that night would be a good time to watch it. I immediately said "YES."
Throughout the first half, I kept asking lots of questions and making lots of guesses, partially because I wanted to know, partially because I enjoyed coming up with ridiculous theories, and partially because I knew she'd find it entertaining.
And the end. The end was awesome, and sparked so much discussion.
Leave your theories in the comments. I want to read them.
(SPOILER ALERT FROM HERE ON OUT)
Some things we discussed:
- Is the end intended to be a real life Inception, meaning that it's just there to make us think and wonder?
- Does it mean that it doesn't matter whether it's real or not, because he's happy?
- Was it wobbling?
- Is he still in Limbo?
- Was the entire movie in Limbo, and the real point was to get him out of it?
- Did she really die?
- "They come here to wake up." (the old guy in the basement where the chemist works)
