It seems most people agree Inception is an amazing movie, even though they don’t fully understand what happened! Leonardo DiCaprio has some advice on what to watch for the second time.
Don’t feel bad if you walked out of Inception confused — even Leo himself admits the plot is difficult the first time around.
“Obviously, this is a huge concept,” Leo told MTV News of Inception. “But what [director Christopher Nolan] does do, which is so clever, is he makes you, as an audience, engage in characters that are attempting something for the first time. So you understand the rules and the planning and all the pitfalls that may come with this idea of implanting an idea in someone’s mind.”
Once you learn the basics the first time, Leo has some advice on what you should pay attention to the second time!
“The sheer nature and the scope of the film and a lot of the action presents itself as something extremely surreal and infinite in possibility,” he said. “But when you start to hone in on the character’s journey, it is four different states of going deep into one’s past.”
Take Leo’s character, Dom Cobb, for example!
“My character and a lot of the characters in this movie have a cathartic journey of while we’re going deeper into the dream state, we’re going closer and closer and closer to who we are,” Leo explained. “Certainly my character comes to terms with his own nightmares. That was what immediately intrigued me to the movie that I think [Nolan] pulled off incredibly well.”
