Inception: What It Has Done To Us

Inception is one of those movies that leaves you thinking. But that is a description that falls in many ways…

When we went to see inception, two of the other three people that joined us were seeing it for the second time. Reading forum topics about Inception, this is not a uncommon situation (people watching it 2-3-4 times to try to make sense of it…)

Truth is Christopher Nolan got us all talking. Even film music fans (I count myself among them) are talking about how the score plays subliminally with slowed-down versions of Edith Piaf songs!

The movie’s “true” meaning (something that Nolan may never give up… even something he may not even know himself) may never reveal itself to us. But that doesn’t matter too much, I think.

What stuck with me was the power of inception… beyond it, think what we as parents can do to our children by making them believe something as they are children: that they can realize their true potential, that they can make reach their goals… we are in a way planting those same seeds of an idea that were mentioned in the movie.

What did you think about Inception?

  1. Manny,
    I think the movie is about many things. It’s about having no regrets (as in the song, and the phrase Cobb repeats to Saito when they’re in limbo so that they can both come out), it’s about forgiving yourself because you can’t control what others do when you give them an idea, it’s about choosing what you know is right even if it’s difficult, it’s about choosing to believe a version of your past that makes your life better (because you don’t really know what your father wanted to tell you). I think this is the most uplifting adventure movie I’ve ever seen.
