I just saw Inception today at SM City Lipa. I haven’t seen any trailer or read any previews/reviews about it before watching it. I just read from some Facebook status that it’s a good movie, so I decided to watch it totally clueless on what it’s all about. Seriously.
Spoiler alert! Stop reading now if you don’t want spoilers. Ok? Ok.
So, what’s my experience? Well, since I was really clueless, I can’t understand the movie on its first few minutes. What’s happening? Nakakalito. Why is he on this place and later on the other place? Why are they sleeping, waking up from a dream, and then waking up again? So, they are dreaming that they are dreaming?
I just began understanding the movie when that girl from Juno entered the scene. Well, since she’s a new recruit, they have to explain everything to her, about the dreams, the totem, the kick, everything. Oh, the imagination of humans are really endless. Imagine, they imagine that in the future, we can enter into someone’s dream and learn about his secrets. Or in this movie’s case, plant some idea into his subconscious by entering into his dreams. And you can dream that you are dreaming that you are dreaming and dreaming? Or you are dreaming that you are on someone else’s dream and on that dream, you are also on someone else’s dream and so on…
I’m not sure if I fully understand the movie after watching it. The ending even gives us a puzzle. Did the top stop spinning or not? If it did not stop, it implies that the whole movie is just another dream and Mal actually wakes up when she jumped off the building.
Anyway, I think, I better buy its DVD so that I can read the subtitle to completely understand it. Googling about the movie, you’ll see people debating about it too.
My recommendation, watch it! It’s like the Matrix movie of this generation. But better on many levels.
