Re: Inception (Christopher Nolan, Leonardo DiCaprio) Grading & Discuss
Well, yes, but that's the leadup to Cobb's rejection of Mal for not being real enough. If he suddenly turns around and decides that he doesn't care, that erases all his character development over the film.
The point is Cobb can be mistaken. He may desire to see the true world; but he can get in wrong - and in this case, his overpowering desire to see his children overrules the importance of reality.
'Spock is always right, even when he's wrong. It's the tone of voice, the supernatural reasonability; this is not a man like us; this is a god.'
- Philip K. Dick
