INCEPTION（国译：奠基／盗梦空间，港译：潜行凶 间）在香岛播出一段时间了，该片感觉上是MATENVISIONIX和OCEAN ELEVEN的综合体，加上有一点EVA的鲁钝开放式结局。建议未尝看过的管仲们，借使要读书以下内容一定要三思反复思，看过故事剧情切磋后电影观赏度会大大优惠。
还有2:07:47Cobb说Saito is dead by now, that means he is down here somewhere, that means I have to find him.
Why is Saito so much older than Cobb when Cobb visits him in limbo?
The reason that Saito appears to be so much older than Cobb when they are in limbo is because of the time. Saito entered limbo before Cobb and due to the fact that time moves differently in limbo, this means that although Saito only entered limbo a short time before Cobb did, he will still appear much older since time moves at a different rate depending on how far down you are.
Although it doesn’t look it, the script says that Cobb has also aged slightly when he goes to visit Saito. Cobb technically spent years looking for Saito in limbo. This is why he looks so dazed and confused when he finally finds Saito. He is only able to remember Saito’s name at first, but after talking with Saito, the two start to remember everything.
A妹:Mal killed Fischer?
Cobb:I couldn't shoot her, and there is no use of reviving, his mind is already trapped down there, it's all over.
4：limbo和lv3的年月比例并不一点都不小。(因为她在Lv4里忙活了说不定几十分钟到多少个时辰找到Fischer的时候就想来"Saito is dead by now.")
除此以外要在静心的是，Saito在Limbo状态下几乎创立了二个他的社会风气。这么些世界和Cobb欲偷取Saito机密那一个职务时所设定的梦之中梦场景十一分相像， 无论那贰个梦境是哪个人的，大家有理由猜忌那是让Saito不恐怕辨认真伪的睡梦，纵然说和她通常生活相比附近。这是否在Limbo状态下的这么些梦境，Saito 用了他的记得来成立世界，从一个侧边思疑她早就爱莫能助识别现实和梦境了。
What was Arthur doing in the elevator scene?
Arthur was trying to deliver a kick to the team. He was unable to use gravity and he had to improvise and use the elevator shaft to create the same feeling that a kick would provide. He synced the charges with the other kicks that were going on in the level above.
The loss of gravity was due to the van in the level above falling off the bridge. The feeling of falling transferred over into the second level and therefore it seemed as if there was no gravity in the hotel. By setting off the explosive, Arthur improvises so that the people in the lift will feel a force, equal to the force of gravity. They will experience a falling sensation from the explosion.
By disconnecting the elevator from the cables and using an explosion to propel it, it is propelled as if there were gravity.
Level 2的Kick看的本身很吸引，一齐初Arthur在屋企下放了定期炸弹，等待Level 3的Kick唤醒大家后，利用爆炸时将大家摔到下层房间而到位Kick。可是出于Level 1的Kick是运货汽车从几十米高的桥的上面掉入水面，在下跌的进程中，Level 2受影响而浑然处于失重状态。Arthur以为固然爆炸后，因为失重民众并不会有freefall，而是漂浮在屋企里不或许恢复生机。所以她有时将大家转移至电梯里，利用爆炸威力推电梯，使人人受到撞击而产生Kick。那么些设定，其实如若爆炸的力度够，在屋家里依旧电梯里其实都足以产生，炸开房间地板应该也会招致冲力，使人人受到Kick。只是，唯一的危急是，纵然相当的大心炸死了当中的积极分子，在多种梦境下，他们未必会回去Level 1，而是只怕陷入Limbo。不过Arthur不是不晓得这几个吗？
而Arthur作为point man，仿佛搞砸了众多任务。他未有查清Fisher受过反盗梦磨练，让任务小组由头到尾都在遭到Fisher映射的哨兵追杀，导致Saito在 Level 1受到重创最终在Level 3死掉，导致未来全数陈设都被严重骚扰。其余，看起来他们很清楚Level 1的Kick是运货汽车落水（Yusuf驾驶到桥面，怎么看都很像一早已安顿好的），而Arthur却犹如忘记了思索失重状态，最终只可以拾分幸苦又危殆的把大家转移到电梯里。
What exactly is a kick?
A kick is one way to pull someone out of a dream. Usually a signal will be given to the dreamer to make them aware that a kick is coming.
After the signal is given the kick is performed. A kick is the feeling of falling and this feeling is what wakes you up. For example, when Cobb was sitting on the chair and he was pushed into the bathtub or when Arthur performs the elevator explosion or when Yusuf’s van drops etc. By disrupting the equilibrium of the dreamer you are able to wake them.
Kicks were used a lot in the final sequence and it got a bit confusing. I will attempt to clarify it all by working backwards.
Fischer and Ariadne jumped off the building in level 4. This was the first kick. Since the characters were so far under, they needed two synchronized kicks to boot them out of the level. Note that Cobb, who had already been stabbed at this point, decided to ignore the kick because he wanted to go after Saito in limbo.
After Fischer and Ariadne jump off the building, Eames provides a second kick to both of them by blowing up the compound.
Meanwhile in level 2, Arthur’s elevator explosion pulls all the level 3 characters (Eames, Fischer and Ariadne back to level 2. At the same time, Yusuf’s van hitting the water pulls everyone in level 2, back to level 1. To get from level 1 to reality is the tricky part. There are two possibilities. Some people say they had to wait for the sedatives to wear off and some people say they could just kill themselves and wake up since they were only one level down in the dream.
When the music is played it acts as a cue so the person knows a kick is coming soon. That person would then set up a kick for the people who are asleep in his level (eg: like Arthur did in the hotel).
做梦者必要以一种镇静剂来进入分享梦境，在镇静剂未失效的气象下，为了提醒N层的人，在N层梦境能够用Kick（使做梦者感受到自由落体）而唤醒他们，但在N+1层就只好靠去世脱离梦境。轻松的话，要积极退出只可以靠身故， 被动退出（被人家提醒）则足以用Kick。特例是在找回Fisher时，在Level 3时Eames用电击Fisher，同期在Level 4里Ariadne拉着Fisher主动Kick，那样把曾经回老家的Fisher从Level 4拉回Level 3。
不过Limbo状态下的动静如故比较散乱，Cobb所言认知到Limbo世界是假象后自杀能够脱离Limbo，但是洋匈牙利人思疑片头Saito枪杀了Cobb后，Cobb陷入了更加深层的Limbo，而结果是Cobb在Limbo中创造的世 界。作者相比较偏向该我的主张，要脱离Limbo状态，必得说服自身那是个虚假世界，而主动离开（自杀，Kick必要上层同不常候提示），假设是言听计从Limbo 世界而被杀，并不会回去现实，而深陷越来越深的无知，何况混沌状态时间最佳。
Explain the events that took place during the final sequence.
I personally think that the plane is reality and I am going to base this answer on that fact. Everyone gets on the plane and is connected. It is only once they are connected that the dream starts. The first level is the city streets and Yusuf dreams it. The team kidnaps Robert Fischer and forces him to give them the numbers. They also start to plant the idea in his head that his dad wants him to break up the company.
Now level two begins. Yusef stays awake while the team goes into level two. The second level is the hotel and Arthur dreams it. Here the team tricks Fischer into thinking that Browning is an enemy. Cobb convinces Fischer to come with them to level 3.
Arthur stays awake while everyone goes into level 3. The third level is the snow fortress and Eames dreams it. Fischer is taken to the fortress where hopefully the idea that was planted will take hold. While at the fortress, Mal shoots Fischer and Cobb and Ariadne go into level four to save him.
Eames stays awake and everyone else goes into level 4. Ariadne is able
to save Fischer and they both kick themselves back up to level 3. Cobb
is the one dreaming in level 4 and eventually he stays back so he can go
into limbo to find Saito. While in level 4 Cobb is stabbed by Mal.
After being brought back to level 3, Fischer goes into that room with his dad and that whole scene plays out and the idea takes hold of Fischer’s mind. Shortly after this, all the kicks happen. Saito and Cobb are in limbo but the rest of the group is kicked all the way back up to the top. Once they escape the van, Eames transforms into Browning to see if they got the job done.
Cobb and Saito are currently in limbo at this point. Saito is in limbo because he died from the gunshot. The reason why Cobb is in limbo is because Mal stabs him and he presumably dies and enters Saito’s limbo since he is in shared dreaming with Saito. Since Cobb didn’t die from the stab wound right away he may have been able to kick himself back up but he purposefully missed the kick and stayed back to find Saito.
实际上争论最多的就是Limbo层，毕竟是几个梦幻还是混沌状态，即Level 4（图中的Level 5）是或不是Limbo，依然Cobb的睡梦。个人偏侧于相信Cobb的迷梦处于混沌和理性之间，在Level 3她和Ariadne主动进入眠境，在非常梦境里他们找到了Fisher，此时的Fisher事实上在Level 3过逝而陷入Limbo，所以Cobb的迷梦能够连绵不断到Limbo，只怕因为她去过这里。这里实在很偷换概念，Fisher和Ariadne用Kick离 开梦境，而Cobb被Mal刺伤，未有积极Kick以离开梦境。可能他伤重死去而步入Limbo（则Level 4为科布的梦乡），恐怕他未有死却滞留在那（则那层已是Limbo），答案一无所知。
So what happened at the end? （选多少个自己以为大概的答案）
The inception was actually on Cobb
A popular theory is that the film wasn’t about planting an idea in Fishcer’s head, rather it was about planting an idea in Cobb’s head. Think about it, Cobb is racked with guilt and his father-in-law (Michael Caine’s character Miles) knows this. Surely he would want to see his son-in-law get back to normal wouldn’t he?
Could it be that he hired Ariadne, an exceptionally bright and talented architect, to perform inception on Cobb?
Think about it, when Cobb is walking through the airport at the end and sees Miles, Miles says “you’re welcome”. Why would Miles say this? Is he saying it because he has freed Cobb from the guilt and now Cobb can finally get on with his life?
If anyone was capable of performing inception on Cobb it would be Ariadne. She was always eager for more information on Mal and she was the only one who got a look inside Cobb’s mind. She is also the only one who knows about Cobb’s totem and how it works.
Perhaps the inception was on Cobb all along. It was to plant the idea that he wasn’t responsible for Mal’s death and that he could still live a normal and peaceful life if he let go. As for when the inception took place, that’s another story. It could be when Cobb went to try out the drugs in Yusef’s place and everything from there was in his head or it could be that the inception on Fischer was just a cover or an excuse for Ariadne to get into Cobb’s head and perform the inception. An interesting take on this theory can be found here. I’d summarize it but its quite long and this article is already getting a bit too lengthy.
Cobb wakes up at the end and is actually able to return to his kids
Most people still think that the ending is real and Cobb is back in the real world. Think about it, Cobb went into limbo to find Saito. He reminds old Saito of their deal and convinces Saito that this world is a dream and not reality. Since both of them realize that they are dreaming, perhaps they can escape limbo.
When Saito grabs the gun, and presumably kills himself and Cobb, maybe this sends them back to the plane. Or maybe the sedatives wear off by this point and they are able to escape limbo from the gunshot since they are not under sedatives. If in fact the sedatives had worn off and they were just normally dreaming, it would be reasonable to think that they can kick themselves out of limbo and back onto the plane.
The kick would be a straight kick back to the plane since they wouldn’t
have to go through the other levels. This is because the other levels
had already collapsed so technically they were only one level under.
This theory calls into question the very very end. When Cobb returns home his kids are in the same spot and are wearing the same clothes. Another thing to point out is that the kids haven’t aged at all either, they look the exact same. This leads people to doubt this theory. The people who support it will argue that Nolan just did this to mess with us and to leave the ending open to interpretation. Another thing to point out is that Cobb is only seen wearing his wedding ring in dream scenes, never in reality. At the end of the movie he isn’t wearing the ring, maybe he is in the real world?
The ending is just a dream and Cobb is still stuck in limbo
The theory I like to go with is that the Cobb is still dreaming at the end and doesn’t escape limbo. A few reasons give this theory validity. Firstly, the whole thing that was mentioned above about the children is a strong point for this theory. Another reason is because at the end, when Cobb spins the top, he just walks away. He doesn’t seem to care whether or not it stops spinning. Perhaps it’s because he knows he is in a dream but he doesn’t care because perhaps this is the only way he can see his kids.
Another reason I think this theory has some validity is because we see Saito pick up the gun at end. I think that when Saito shoots him, instead of going back up to the plane, Cobb enters an even deeper limbo. There is simply no way for Cobb or Saito to return to the plane since they both died while sedated. The very end is just a projection that Cobb created so he could be happy and at peace. By killing Cobb, Saito did complete his end of the deal, Cobb was able to return home to his kids, even if it was in a dream.
