    yeah I think we all know that. but there has been some speculation that you can hear the top fall after the screen goes black if the crowd in the theatre is quiet enough.

    The totem doesn't fall, quiet crowd or not. It's the whole point of the movie. What is real, what is not? Are you real or are you dreaming? Was Mal right all along? Was it eventually going to fall? It doesn't really matter. It's just explaining skepticism through an incredible movie.

    A clue that it isn't all a dream lies in the fact that in reality, DiCaprio doesn't wear a ring on his finger. In his dreams, he is wearing (presumably) his wedding ring.


    In the final scene, he is not wearing a ring. Take it how you want.

    Not impressed with inception. I went to the box office and asked for my money back.

    No way known people should get money back for not liking a movie.

    You should check out "Eclipse". You'll probably love it.


    Anyway- it seems he's dreaming at the end. Same scene that he lived over and over in his dream, so why would it happen the exact same way in reality? The kids didn't age... they were outside because he told them to go, but at the end he's just arriving. Plus... the top spun for forever.

    After seeing this several times now I believe the wedding ring is his totem and the spinning top is nothing more than a red herring (it was Mol's totem all along anyway). Should there be a longer version of the movie released in the future it will be more apparent. The kids do age and they are wearing different clothes (just similar enough to keep you guessing though).

    That movie leaves you asking too many questions. I haven't seen it since it was in theaters, but man does Leo know how to make you scratch your head.
