Christopher Nolan’s Inception was one of the biggest hits of the summer. Prior to its release we didn’t know what it was and after its release we didn’t know what to make of it. Even though many were left confused one thing is for sure, we liked it, we liked it a lot! If you’ve seen the film, you’re aware that it was left open ended…or was it? Co-star Michael Caine recently opened up about that controversial finale and revealed what really happened when it cut to black.
If you haven’t seen Inception, STOP. Spoilers are ahead and they will ruin the film for the rest of your life. Once you start reading there is no turning back!
At the end of the film Cobb has completed his mission, been cleared of murdering his wife, and has finally reunited with his family. While in an interview with BBC Radio, Caine revealed what happened when Cobbed placed the spinning top on the table to see if he was dreaming or not.
“[The spinning top] drops at the end, that’s when I come back on. If I’m there it’s real, because I’m never in the dream. I’m the guy who invented the dream.”
Yay, it’s real! If you remember, when it ended with the close up of the top it was wobbly but it kept on spinning. We wonder if they’ll put that in the special features on the DVD? We need to see it stop and drop for our own piece of mind.
Do you think Caine is telling the truth. Do you think it was still a dream?
