Read full description of the books 盗梦空间 (Chinese Edition):The movie INCEPTION was in my opinion a masterpiece in its own right and the best movie of 2010. Reading a lot of movie screenplays lately I bought this one, and although found how a shooting script translated to screen fascinating, found the careful fabrications Christopher Nolan set up for his world admirable, especially taking the world of the mind and demonstrating brilliant science-fiction world-building. I'm pretty sure that not all the information given about the human mind is accurate, but hell, he made me believe that it was.
Even without the visual mastery that Christopher Nolan displays on screen and the crisp cinematography and art direction in the background, this book is its own wonder- its easier to get engrossed in INCEPTION for its story alone just by reading the screenplay. It also features an insightful interview with Nolan, as well as some excellent concept art and sketches. This is much quoted as a more polished version of Nolan's earlier film MEMENTO- it is, but underneath, it's just as dark, and just as inventive.
The text has a lot of philosophical undertones droned out by Nolan's directorial take on the narrative- for one dimensional people, the movie has a happy ending. You don't fully understand it, but he gets back to his kids, and you got to bed feeling good about life. And that's fine. For two-dimensional people who paid attention to the mechanics and even gave it two or three viewings, you will fully understand the basic four-level dream structure of the story, and even manage to balance the ongoing emotional storyline and heist as well as pick up on things such as the fact that Dom Cobb only wears his wedding ring while he's dreaming. If you're a third dimensional person, then you will see that underneath the surface, this is a very dark movie. I'm disappointed in it, in some ways- because of Nolan's success with The Dark Knight, his follow up is presented as a mainstream movie. It's written as a mainstream action film, but underneath the surface, there's a very subtle what-is-reality plot. Throughout the movie, Dom battles with trying to get his dead wife out of his head. (SPOILER) He's the one who planted the idea that reality is preferable to dreams, because that's what's real- but in the end, he doesn't care about it any more. All he wants is to be happy, so he settles for the dream world. That's why at the end, he doesn't look to see if the top stops spinning, because all he cares about is seeing his kids' faces again. That means that he may very well be stuck in a dream forever, if that's what it takes for him to be happy. You may say that's true, but what about the wedding ring? The theory that's accepted these days is that he only wears his wedding ring while he's dreaming, and while he's not wearing it in the last scene of the movie, he wasn't really dreaming. But you have to remember- that was after he faced the fact that his wife was dead and coped with that, and he even realized that while he was dreaming. This could easily lead to the fact that he wouldn't even be wearing his wedding ring while he was dreaming anymore.
This draws further comparisons- you may say it's a light subplot, but it is recurring. Fischer doesn't accept the fact that his father loved him and wanted to create something for himself because Dom and his team tricked him, he accepted it because it was preferable to his reality- he chose not to face reality, like Dom later does. I thought this was a dark, if horrifyingly easily paralleled to today's world. This is really a story of moral conflict and decay of the mind, whether or not Christopher Nolan realized that when writing it or not. Then again, maybe he also chose not to.
