Fans Think Pic Of Christopher Nolan’s Hand-Drawn Plot For ‘Inception’ Solves Cliffhanger Ending

One of the greatest films ever made, Christopher Nolan’s epic sci-fi masterpiece Inception left people scratching their heads. After watching the film, everyone was asking everyone – was it a dream or was it a reality? This was perhaps the ‘Kattappa ne Baahubali ko kyu mara’ moment in 2010.

Fans Think Photo Of Christopher Nolan

A decade has passed but the mystery surrounding the ending of the movie remains unsolved. Now, a photo of a Christopher Nolan’s hand-drawn plot of the film is going viral on Twitter and some fans think it answers the cliffhanger question.

To jog your memory, Leonardo DiCaprio’s Cobb pulls off the heist and returns home. Before he runs to hug his children, he places his totem down to conduct one final test. It spins and spins, and then darkness. Credits roll and audiences are left with an open ending.

While some fans are going bonkers seeing this, others are appreciating his talent and some others think this answers the cliffhanger question.

“This seems to answer the cliffhanger question as the movie fades to black”, wrote a fan.

“So he was awake at the end!” said another one.

Another Twitter user wrote, “Gonna frame this and put it in my living room”

Inception ending explained

For years, fans have wondered whether Cobb finally met his family or was he forever trapped in the limbo! Some even say that since his kids’ outfits remain unchanged, he was probably dreaming all the while. Here’s how Christopher Nolan explained the ending of Inception.

Michael Caine had once revealed what Nolan told him about dream vs reality.

“When I got the script of Inception, I was a bit puzzled by it and I said to him ‘I do not understand where the dream is’. I said, ‘When is it the dream and when is it reality?’ He said, ‘Well when you’re in the scene it’s reality.’ So get that – if I’m in it, it’s reality. If I’m not in it, it’s a dream. “

Hence, since Caine features in the ending scene, it’s reality.

In 2015, Nolan delivered a lecture on ‘reality and dreams’ at Princeton University in New Jersey. Here is what he said:

“In the great tradition of these speeches, generally someone says something along the lines of ‘Chase your dreams,’ but I do not want to tell you that because I do not believe that. I want you to chase your reality.

“I feel that over time, we started to view reality as the poor cousin to our dreams, in a sense … I want to make the case to you that our dreams, our virtual realities, these abstractions that we enjoy and surround ourselves with – they are subsets of reality. “

“The way the end of that film worked, Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Cobb – he was off with his kids, he was in his own subjective reality. He did not really care anymore (to check if the top kept spinning or not), and that makes a statement: perhaps, all levels of reality are valid.The camera moves over the spinning top just before it appears to be wobbling, it was cut to black.

Inception ending explained dream or reality

“I skip out of the back of the theater before people catch me, and there’s a very, very strong reaction from the audience: usually a bit of a groan. The point is, objectively, it matters to the audience in absolute terms: even though when I’m watching, it’s fiction, a sort of virtual reality. But the question of whether that’s a dream or whether it’s real is the question I’ve been asked most about any of the films I’ve made. people because that’s the point about reality. Reality matters. “he said.
