Fascinated with INCEPTION!

I know I have to watch a puzzling film in order to exercise my mind and invigorate my tired brain muscles, great movies are my favorite escape!and I am always fascinated with a movie plot that made my mind twist a little bit I choose INCEPTION!a mind-blowing, psychological thriller that made my brain work harder.

The story talks about invading one's it possible?well, that's the magic of Chris Nolan's creativity.
INCEPTION "kicks" off in world theater last July 16 but it was only a week later that this critically-acclaimed film finally made a screening debut in Philippine cinemas.

Last Thursday, July 29, one of my friends badgered me to watch Salt but I resented Angelina Jolie and her too good-to-be-true-spy-old-fashion film, so I struggled to convince my friends to choose INCEPTION instead. After several minutes of presenting my reasons why we should watch this latest Leo Di Caprio flick, my three friends finally relented..hehehe

The trouble is, I had an appointment that night with my group mates in business economics, but since my eagerness to watch the film in theater reigned stubbornly in my mind, I texted my classmates to postpone the meeting,hahaha. Anyway, that's it...after office hour, we went to NCCC and alas!INCEPTION was no longer showing so we went to SM.
Leonardo Di Caprio plays Dominic Cobb, an expert extractor who could invade one's mind through dreams.

But I must admit, the first half of the film is monumentally boring, I couldn't grasp exactly what the director, Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight and Batman Begins), tried to convey as the sequences were too slow to connect, anyway, after the scene, where Leo Di Caprio met Ellen Page and talked about invading dreams, followed by cracking of buildings and raising of bridges, I became interested with the whole thing.

The story is an original creation of Christopher Nolan, and talks about a human fascination of the power of imagination, and the possibility of invading dreams and penetrating the subconscious, it was utterly mind-bogging, thinking how one's mind could penetrate other people's dreams and steal ideas and secrets. It remains a phenomenon though, but the movie really gave me a hard time analyzing the whole concept.

One of the elements used and presented in the film, is a spinning device called "totem", this precious thing is carried by Dom Cobb (Leo Di Caprio) to distinguish the situation if he is dreaming or already wake up.

If the device wobbles fast, he is still in his dream but if it stops, he is already awake. The surprising twist comes in the last scene where Cobb returned to the United States after his client, Saito, helped him cleared his name on the murder charges against his wife.

Cobb went home and met his children whom he left to his father-in-law while hiding from the police authorities. But what puzzles me is the final scene where the totem wobbled fast while Cobb hugged his children, until the film credits showed, the totem did not stop wobbling.

So it means, Dom Cobb is still trap in his dream?and his wife is true that it's him who refused to go back to reality? and in order for him to fully wake up is to pass death?oh gosh!I wanna talk to direct Chris Nolan about this twist!
