    What do you think, was the meeting with Cobbs family at the end just a dream (top still spins)?

    Though I do find it coincidental that his kids were wearing the same clothes, the fact that one could trace the layers of kicked dream back to reality, as well as the fact that the top started to wobble a bit right before the screen rudely turned to black, is enough for me to think that he's in reality.

    But... Then again, he sort of just walked away without even taking a second look at the top, as if he didn't even care for reality anymore. And the whole "the children are wearing the same clothes" thing is a bit fishy. Perhaps the image of his kids doing the same thing in the same clothes as when he left was a projection in his mind, projected that way in order to fully satiate his burning desire to see them after all that time.

    Dang, now I'm second-guessing myself. [​IMG]

    ...Damn you, Christopher Nolan, you suck for not giving us a clear ending.

    What makes me believe that he was not dreaming, is that, at the end he was not wearing his wedding ring anymore, which he was in limbo.

    I think he was in reality because the top began to wobble and we saw the children's faces. Before we didn't see the faces of them because you couldn't change a memory.
    This is a great movie!

    From looking at the FAQ on IMDB, reading comments around here, and using my own thoughts, I wrote this. It's from my Facebook so copypasta.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Regardless, any movie to have enough debate on the ending and be able to have this much speculation shows that it's a movie with such incredible depth and ingenuity. I truly enjoyed it.

    No way in hell the entire movie is a dream. But i do agree with almost all your points.

    Who knows, maybe the entire movie was a dream and it's just a giant mindfuck. We'll have to wait for the director's cut of the film, with two additional seconds at the end where the top falls, then keeps spinning again, and then Christopher Nolan pops out and screams "FUCK YOOOOOOU!"

    I can't say for certain, but I'm pretty sure that he WASNT dreaming. I mostly say this because of the opinions in Guild's post. Makes a lot of sense to me. The "Whole movie is a dream" idea is stupid, and would kind of ruin the effect for me. I doubt that the human mind would be able to fathom a dream within a dream x5.

    I believe that there are no real answers to the ending of inception.
    That's why this movie is so great, MINDFUCK

    One layer more or less would not be a difference, right?

    Wrong. In lucid dreams, your hands are blurry and you are not able to read or make out numbers. Just imagine the effect x5.
