Inception

It took me several hours to finally remember the name of the movie I went to see last night.  I kept forgetting it.  I didn't even know what the word meant until the movie was nearly over.  


If you liked "The Matrix", you might like this one.  It has the same surreal/alternate reality theme, fast pace, loud music and a certain "je ne sais quois".  Actually I do "sais quois"...I do know what it is:  they purposely tried to keep the audience in the dark for as long as possible. 

What does it mean?
Why did that happen?
What is he talking about?
Is this in the past or the future?
What level are they in now?
Who/what is Mol?

And then the ending!!!!  

We were falling asleep and still talking about it.  We woke up and the first thing on our minds was, "he woke up on the beach, so that means....."   The best part of last night's "dinner and a movie" was the dinner. 

Could it be that we were just wrung out with too much emotional upheaval the last week?  Maybe focusing on life and death reality would have been more therapeutic than science-fiction diversion.  Where is Walt Disney when you need a feel-good, rollicking good time?
