Re: Michael Caine explains the ending of INCEPTION
The top was clearly undergoing precession, meaning it will inevitably fall, and the kids at the end were meant to be around two years older and were played by different actors. Seems pretty clear that he was in the real world to me.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
