I realize this may be abit late BUT inception was ONE HELL of a movie but I have seen this movie a number of times now but i still am questioning that one final scene.
We all can recall that gripping final scene in inception where we as the audience are left with the torturous top spinning but it almost toppling over, we are led to question if Cobb is in reality or in another dream.
I guess people can argue that Cobb is indeed still in a dream as when he was with Yusuf he gave Cobb the sedative sleeping drug in the basement with all the other sleeping men, he woke up from the dream where Mal had entered went to the bathroom and spun the top. This followed by Satio entering and the top falling down from Cobb knocking it. We know from this point it is uncertain if the top fell or if its a subtle hint if he is in reality. Additionally when he saw his kids at the end of the film, we did not see a change of clothes or age as the last time Cobb was with them was well a year over.
However the argument for reality cold be that during the course of this film you see the totem spin straight and never wobbles as if its going to fall. He also states that in the dream world it never falls. In the last frame of the film, we see the totem wobble as if it will fall, which will not occur in the dream world. This leaves the audience led to believe that Cobb is now in reality!
I myself remain highly confused about the state we are left in with these two large dilemmas, are we in a dream or are we back in reality...
What do you think?
