I just can't see any noir along with Inception. It is a movie that is spoon-feeding information to the audience, 88 questions with Ariadne and all. And with that, the movie lost its REAL "puzzle to solve" in comparison to Memento, for me anyway. Sure, Inception is still being discussed but so far its only about the ending, and very little about its movie making process. Why is it so important for the audience to have total absolution with a real or dreamy ending, when the protagonist himself does NOT care?

Yes, yes it is. I wish and hope Ridley someday makes a successor to it, just using the same universe as he is doing with Prometheus versa Alien.

Now that would really, really be something. I won't get rid of this notion. Thanks =)

If Nolan makes a Film Noir, it should be a something like a cross between Chinatown and Blade Runner.
