thx for sharing :D

What can you tell us about Inception?
CM: This film has the structure of a heist movie, although not quite that conventional, of course. It’s an existential heist. Chris plays with shifting narratives, like he did in Memento. This one’s equally complex. I don’t know how it was for you, Ken, but when I first got the script, it was a hard read because it’s so visual. I’d never read anything like it in my life.
KW: It was so confusing. I couldn’t understand it the first time.

Now that you’ve seen the film—
CM: We’re supposed to keep it a secret! The anticipation is refreshing. People are so impatient. But Chris is very old-fashioned in a lot of ways: in the way he makes films, his take on promotion and technology.
KW: There wasn’t even a green screen when we were shooting so we were always surprised on set. Every day, we were like, wow. He wants to make the experience as realistic as possible for his actors. He built a regular set and then requested a rotating one to simulate zero gravity.

With whom did you two work most closely?
CM: Ken and I got to do a lot of cool stuff together.
KW: I shot one scene on top of a mountain. It was freezing cold!
CM: We did some crazy stunts. I was so proud of mine.

What did you get to do?
CM: You’ll see.

brilliant :clap:

It's crazy that no one understood the script the first time. Also, Ken and Cillian did a lot of scenes together? I thought one was mostly supposed to be in the dreamworld... :think:
