And it seems that Nolan is constantly trying too hard to fool his audience that you can't relly enjoy it.
How is he trying to fool his audience? This is a very straightforward story.
I don't know if I would say he's trying to "fool" anyone, it's more like the characters spend so much time acting like what they're doing is so deathly important that you might get tricked into thinking something really important is actually going on. When in reality, all you're watching is the prelude to some corporate spin-outs.

It seems like a lot people are walking away from this movie thinking it contains some profound truths about the nature of existence, but it isn't really about anything other than its own arbitrary, complicated rules.
