To quote the interviewer "So lets get to the question that's been asking since Inception premiered last July and promptly cooked our noodle. Did the top stop spinning or what?"
“I’ve been asked the question more times than I’ve ever been asked any other question about any other film I’ve made, Nolan laughs. That’s definitely the question. It keeps coming back to that. What’s funny to me is that people really do expect me to answer it. There can’t be anything in the film that tells you one way or another because then the ambiguity at the end of the film would just be a mistake, he says. It would represent a failure of the film to communicate something. But it’s not a mistake. I put that cut there at the end, imposing an ambiguity from outside the film. That always felt the right ending to me — it always felt like the appropriate ‘kick’ to me….The real point of the scene — and this is what I tell people — is that Cobb isn’t looking at the top. He’s looking at his kids. He’s left it behind. That’s the emotional significance of the thing.”So... does that finally clear all that up for you imbeciles??? Also, Nolan dropped some knowledge on the fact that an Inception video game is in development and coming soon. I have to admit, I think Nolan handles himself admirably. My fellow blogger Vinny Mancini from Film Drunk is not so nice though... here is how he ended his article:
"It always amazes me that in 2010, you still have to explain to grown adults that fictional characters don’t have a secret life outside the works in which they appear. Air Bud spiked the ball and won the game dude, we both saw it. He didn’t become a longshoreman or start an optometry practice in Poughkeepsie."
