So someone's gonna bring it up...

And then everyone is going to be debating it....

So I might as well just jump start it now...
What’s happening in the movie: Saito says he’ll clear Cobb’s name if he takes the job. He asks Cobb to take “a leap of faith.”

“The Entire Movie Is a Dream” Argument: The phrase “leap of faith” occurs over and over. It’s an artifact of Cobb’s subconscious.

Nolan’s Comment: “I don’t think I’m going to tell you about this.”

This part was hilarious, I love his answer.
What’s happening in the movie: Cobb washes up on the beach (full circle with beginning).

“Just the Ending Is a Dream” Argument: Saito honors his agreement. They build limbo to be their reality together.

Nolan’s Comment: “Uh…that’s not how I would have read the movie.”

The “I don’t think I’m going to tell you about this” and "Oh no, I've got an answer" responses from Nolan are equally intriguing and frustrating :think:

Did we expect anything less, he was just as cryptic about Memento when it came out.

Nolan’s Comment: “This gives Cobb a base-line reality. But he’s an untrustworthy narrator.”
LOL! What Iv been saying all the time! The fact that the top tobbles is no evidence that its not a dream, since he is not a reliable narrator.


you need to see that Cobb’s world and the dream world are very similar. And you need to doubt Cobb.”
“The important thing is that Cobb’s not looking at the top. He doesn’t care.”
Thank you Chris, Thank you!
