Inception Didn't Even Make Sense to the Actors While Shooting
This isn't meant to be negative, despite that kind of misleading headline, but I like reporting on this because it keeps the mystery about Chris Nolan's Inception going. We haven't seen a new trailer for Inception since last December but we've heard more about how crazy it's going to be. Time for even more news! Leonardo DiCaprio spoke to the Inquirer.net (via SlashFilm) about upcoming films. "Both Chris and Martin are great directors. 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."
Okay, don't worry, this isn't as bad as it sounds. If anything, Inception is going to be as twisted as Memento, or maybe even more twisted than that. A few weeks back, Chris Nolan said that Inception is the "the biggest [movie] I've ever been involved with" and that it explores all kinds of ideas "in four dimensions," whatever that means. I'm not sure when we'll see another trailer (hopefully in the next few weeks) but I guess I don't care cause I wish tomorrow was July 16th and we could be watching this (without knowing anything else about it). As always, the more I hear about Inception, the more excited I get, it sounds incredibly unique.
