If you’ve ever seen Memento or The Prestige- you know Nolan makes movies that are GENIUS in the way that theyre like a puzzle, and you want to watch them OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
Well, his upcoming movie INCEPTION is no diference, apparently Leonardo DiCaprio said he didnt really “get it” while they were filming. And his following quote tells me he still really doesnt get this brain-busting movie:
“The material and its complexity are what I’m attracted to…I’ve been lucky to work with people who want to tell stories that hit on different cylinders simultaneously. ‘Shutter Island’ is definitely that. ‘Inception’ is the same. It is Chris delving into dream psychoanalysis and, at the same time, making a high-octane, surreal film that came from his mind. He wrote the entire thing, and it all made sense to him. It didn’t make sense to many of us when we were doing it. We had to do a lot of detective work (laughing) to figure out what the movie was about.”
