Inception: Chris Nolan clears up The Ending.
What’s happening in the movie: Arriving home, Cobb finally sees his children’s faces.
“The Entire Movie Is a Dream” Argument: The kids haven’t aged! And they’re in the same clothes! This is clearly all a dream.
Nolan’s Comment: “The kids are not wearing the same clothes at the end! And they do age! We were working with two sets of kids.”
What’s happening in the movie: Cobb spins the top—it’s still spinning when the movie cuts to black.
“The Entire Movie Is a Dream” Argument: The top doesn’t matter—Cobb can finally see his children’s faces.
Nolan’s Comment: “The important thing is that Cobb’s not looking at the top. He doesn’t care.”
Finally!! This is what I’ve been saying to people for 4 and a half months!!!
