Re: Inception (Christopher Nolan, Leonardo DiCaprio) Grading & Discuss

Here's a really fun article of an interpretation of not only the ending but the whole movie:

http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/article...interpretation

It basically posits that the events preceding the event did occur in reality and in dream-states as presented on the surface, and that when Saito and Cobb wake up in the plane, they are indeed back in reality.

HOWEVER, the author suggests that the final scene after that is indeed a dream, but not in a limbo dream state. Instead, he posits that it's simply a regular old dream that Cobb later has -- maybe on the plane, maybe sometime in the future -- just sleeping normally.
