  1. 1. INCEPTION By Christopher Nolan
  2. 2. INCEPTION The establishment or starting point of an institution or activity. beginning, commencement, start, birth, genesis, origin
  3. 3. • Inception is a 2010 British-American sciencefiction film • written, co-produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan • Ranked no.37 in box office ranking
  4. 4. • Penrose stairs are incorporated into the film as an example of the impossible objects that can be created in lucid dream worlds.
  5. 5. . DiCaprio plays Dominick "Dom" Cobb, a professional thief who commits corporate espionage by infiltrating the subconscious of his targets. He is offered a chance of redemption as payment for a task considered to be impossible: "inception", the implantation of another person's idea into a target's subconscious.
  6. 6. Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one.
  7. 7. • What’s happening in the movie: After the first extraction fails, Cobb spins his top to check if he is in a dream. It falls over. • “The Ending Is Not a Dream” Argument: This establishes context for the audience—the movie is not all a dream.
  8. 8. • What’s happening in the movie: Saito says he’ll clear Cobb’s name if he takes the job. He asks Cobb to take “a leap of faith.” • “The Entire Movie Is a Dream” Argument: The phrase “leap of faith” occurs over and over. It’s an artifact of Cobb’s subconscious.
  9. 9. • What’s happening in the movie: Cobb starts assembling his team and trains Ariadne in dreamweaving. • “Actually, It’s About Movie-Making” Argument: All the roles correspond. Cobb: director. Ariadne: writer. Eames: art director. Saito: producer. Fischer: audience.
  10. 10. • What’s happening in the movie: Cobb goes to Mombasa to get Eames the forger and Yusuf the chemist. • Nolan’s Comment: “I wanted to show the potential for the real world to have analogies to the dream world. The mazelike city of Mombasa does that.” • “Actually, It’s About Movie-Making” Argument: Smash cuts, mysterious chases, implausible coincidences—the grammar of film is the grammar of dreams.
  11. 11. • What’s happening in the movie: Cobb confronts Mal in limbo, and Fischer is incepted in the hospital. • “The Entire Movie Is a Dream” Argument: Mal challenges Cobb’s reality. Faceless corporations? Chased around the globe? Really?
  12. 12. • What’s happening in the movie: Cobb washes up on the beach (full circle with beginning). • “Just the Ending Is a Dream” Argument: Saito honors his agreement. They build limbo to be their reality together.
  13. 13. • • • • What’s happening in the movie: Arriving home, Cobb finally sees his children’s faces. “The Entire Movie Is a Dream” Argument: The kids haven’t aged! And they’re in the same clothes! This is clearly all a dream. “Or Maybe It’s a Meditation on Architecture” Argument: It’s the golden-lit craftsman dream home…with a house made of blocks on the dining table. Nolan’s Comment: “The film is about architects. It’s about builders.”
  14. 14. • What’s happening in the movie: Cobb spins the top—it’s still spinning when the movie cuts to black. • “The Entire Movie Is a Dream” Argument: The top doesn’t matter—Cobb can finally see his children’s faces. • Nolan’s Comment: “The important thing is that Cobb’s not looking at the top. He doesn’t care.” • “Or Maybe It’s a Meditation on Architecture” Argument: The top itself is constructed—topologically, it’s a pseudosphere, every point curving away.
