仪器与试剂:
造梦机一台,输药管若干,催眠试剂A少量,催眠试剂B少量。

    自从看了Inception已经有几天了,本以为大致了解了剧情内容,但上网后才发现还有很多details我没有follow到,所以这篇文章主要是用来理清头绪的。总之这绝对是部成功的电影,因为他能使你在走出电影院后依然对情节念念不忘,急于找人和你一起探讨这部电影耐人寻味的地方。
    先来说说角色,要将整个团队每个人的性格特征都刻画出来并不容易,但这部影片做得很好:
    The extractor: Dom Cobb. 作为整个计划的总指挥和策划者,Cobb的技术毋庸置疑,但他却有个能致全队危险的软肋:对亡妻Mal的愧疚。这致使多次任务出现差错:开篇时在盗取Saito信息时Mal出现打伤梦主Arthur;在给Ariadne上课时Mal一刀将其秒杀;雨中城市突然在路上冲出一列火车;雪中堡垒Fischer被Mal枪击……所以Cobb能否完成自我救赎也是全片一条隐线。
    The architect: Ariadne. 年轻的天才研究生,对造梦有着不可抑制的激情和想象力,这从她不断改造的Cobb的梦境就能看出(折叠城市和无限回廊超赞)。时刻在Cobb身边提醒她不要被潜意识里的Mal影响,在任务面临失败时提出了力挽狂澜的办法,最终帮助团队成功完成implant.
       The point man: Arthur. Cobb忠实的助手,严谨是他的做风,所以在Saito提出offer和Cobb提出Charles计划时一开始都持反对态度,主要任务是对subject进行背景调查,在必要时充当打手(雨中城市拿冲锋枪,酒店失重对殴),还会耍耍小聪明(在酒店外向Ariadne骗吻- -)。
    The forger: Eames. 与Arthur有截然相反的性格,机会主义者(从在赌场登场就可见一斑),吃喝玩乐坑蒙拐骗一样不差(在赌场伪造了chips),借机接近Browning以尽可能像得伪装他,爱刺激也使他听到Cobb的implant计划时只是说了difficult而不是impossible, 在听了Ariadne进入更深一层梦境的计划也是立马答应了下来。
    The tourist/sponsor: Saito. 从发觉Cobb的计划且知道自己在梦中说明他也不只是有钱而已。在梦中被打成重伤,但始终不忘对Cobb的承诺,说明他也是个有情义的人,死后一直在limbo等着Cobb到来。

老文章了,放一下。

重看了一遍英文字幕,把框架和核心概念梳理了一遍,比之前弄得更清楚了

(一) kick的设定问题,片中在三个时间段上出现了kick:
1.Arthur(小帅锅)与Cobb(小李)在第二层梦境开头入侵Satio(大土豪)未果,Athur让第一层的造梦师强行将Cobb推入浴缸,让Cobb在第一层醒来。
可见在没嗑药情况下,在N层梦境中的第kick能够强行让第N 1层梦中的人醒来回到N层。
2.Yusuf就是药剂师大叔在向大伙儿描述他的特效药时,特地说明了他的 sedative设计上让人的内耳中前庭功能不受影响。
注意,在此多次让Arthur在做梦时将其推倒醒来,我们默认Arthur只进入到了第一层梦境,所以在嗑药与不嗑药情况下kick效果都是一样的,将下一层的人拉回来
3.inception任务阶段,第一层梦境Yusuf过早将van开下桥,导致处于第三层的大伙错过了第一次kick。此时Cobb说还有一次kick是在van落入水中的时候,从此可以推测kick的触发是在加速度发生剧烈改变的时候(落桥时加速度瞬间增大,落水时加速度瞬间减小)
在此有两个问题,一是第一次kick时,为何Arthur并没有醒来?二是Ariadne 和 Fischer在高楼上的fall显得没有意义,这个问题之后再讨论。

实验原理:
1. 使用造梦机和催眠试剂A可带领他人进入自己创造的梦境,使用催眠试剂A可构建两层梦境,使用催眠试剂B可构建多层。

    The chemist: Yusuf. 有配药才能,只卖药不卖身,看在钱的面子上破例了-

       The mark: Robert Fischer. 富二代,inception的目标人物,将“父亲希望我创办自己的事业”的思想植入到他脑中。演员给我邪恶的感觉(可能因为是看过他演的反派),但片中却是彻头彻尾的天然呆,而且连公司最大的竞争对手都不认识。
    The shade: Mal. 跳楼身亡,之后我们会知道是Cobb的implant过于根深蒂固导致她认为现实生活也是假的才自杀的。片中的Mal都是Cobb的潜意识产物,Cobb对亡妻愧疚越深,Mal就越不择手段想把他留在梦境中。Cobb建造了一个记忆阶梯想把Mal留在里面,但还是治标不治本。
    其实计划出过许多差错,但都幸运地克服了。首先是Arthur调查的失误没发现Fischer是受过潜意识训练的,从而导致了Saito的中枪,从而导致整个计划被大幅度提前(Eames本有一个晚上时间准备模仿,但这次却必须立马变装上阵);由于Fischer的subconscious过于强大,Yusuf不得不提前kick, 但后两层的人都没准备好,所以没有成功(酒店失重,雪山雪崩),但还有备用kick, 就是坠入水中的瞬间,由于kick失败导致失重,Arthur不得不把kick地点换成了电梯;Mal搅局。先是突然出现的火车,后是枪击Fischer,导致不得不更深一层把Fischer找回来,由于增加了20倍的时间,计划理论上可行。这一切都配合的无衣无缝,不禁让人佩服编剧严谨的逻辑思维。
    作为一部剧情严谨的影片,时不时出现一些笑点是必不可少的。有两个场景使电影院的观众默契地发出笑声,一个是Saito不经意的一句:“我把整个航空公司买下了(你到底多有钱- -)。”,还有一个是Yusuf驾车翻滚N周后得意的转过头说:"You see that?" 却发现后面人全在睡觉(囧)。其实全片这类的小幽默是有很多的:第一层梦境中Arthur的冲锋枪不敌Fischer的subconscious时,Eames一句;"U mustn't be afraidto dream bigger, darling." 后拿出一把火箭筒把整个平台炸了(汗|||);Eames用kick欺负Arthur还坏笑道:"This is kick.", 之后一串的Arthur被kick;Yusuf禁不住机上免费香槟的诱惑结果导致在他的梦境中下起了大雨(尿急了- -);Saito把Browning误认成Eames后解释“你长得像我一个熟人”,Browning回复道:“那他一定很帅”;酒店外Arthur和Ariadne发现Fischer的subconscious在怀疑自己,Arthur让Ariadne吻他,结果没用,Ariadne很疑惑:"They r still looking at us.",Arthur则是坏笑:"It's worth toshock."……
    说到这部佳作,其中各种争议自然不能不说。
    1、到底是第四层梦境还是limbo?Fischer被击中后Ariadne建议更深一层把Fischer找回来,之后她和Cobb便又睡了,而这次的场景却是Cobb曾经被困的limbo. Cobb说过Fischer的意识被困在下面了,没说进入limbo, 所以之后limbo的情景可能是由当时的梦主Cobb再次创造出来的,理由是雪山堡垒的环境影响了这一层梦境(电击时打雷、最后高楼全线崩溃);当然还有种最简单的解释,他们去的就是limbo, 因为cobb要留下来找Saito, 环境也是一模一样,Cobb也说Mal在这等着他(如果当Cobb是梦主时也解释的通)。
    2、陀螺到底有没有停?其实仔细想想全片有些剧情值得推敲。Cobb在躲避公司追杀时被小巷卡住,硬挤出后立刻遇到了Saito的救助,是不是有些太巧了?当Cobb去他岳父那找architect时,岳父曾说过一句耐人寻味的话:“回到现实吧。”(这有两个解释,梦境派认为这是Cobb的潜意识希望自己回到现实,现在所处是梦境;现实派认为这是Cobb岳父希望他别干盗梦的工作,毕竟有危险,也不合法)Cobb在全美遭到通缉,是不是就像subconscious一样?在药剂师的地下室做了一个有关亡妻的梦后,Cobb到厕所洗脸,却看到窗外有Mal若隐若现的身影,但这时不应该是现实吗?之后有所怀疑的Cobb想用陀螺验证,却掉到了地上。还有Saito到底是什么人,能把Cobb的罪名完全洗脱掉?但说这一切都是现实是有依据的。在梦中Cobb是戴婚戒的,现实中没有,全片最后他没戴;片尾孩子的衣服换了,演员也换大了两岁。
    再来说说本片众多的细节,其中许多你或许在第一次看时完全会忽略掉。刚开始在对Saito进行inception时对表有特写,告诉观众现在所处的是梦境,象征着梦中时间被拉长;Eames在赌场拿着一堆chips去换钱,却被Cobb发现上面的拼写错误,这些chips是伪造的;Cobb说他讨厌火车,当Ariadne进入Cobb的梦境,下电梯时也见到了火车,雨中城市也是火车突然冲出,之后我们就会知道原因:在limbo他和妻子通过卧轨回到现实;Cobb面试Ariadne时让她画迷宫让自己来破解,前两次都太简单了,第三次Ariadne把纸反过来,在背面画了一个圆形迷宫,打破了常规;Arthur在给Ariadne上课时介绍了Penrose阶梯,正是这招使他在酒店把subconscious耍得团团转;当Ariadne向Cobb介绍自己创造的梦时Cobb立刻制止了她,生怕自己知道后潜意识里的Mal又会搅局,在雪山堡垒我们发现Cobb的担忧完全是正确的;在进行最后一次战术会议时其实是在梦境中的,最后Cobb还称赞了Ariadne造梦的精湛,也说明了深谙其道的盗梦者不会把自己的潜意识带到梦境中;酒店里Eames乔装的女子给了Fischer一串数字,正是上一层梦境Fischer自己说的,这么做的目的只是让他记起上一层梦境和那串数字罢了;为了完成kick需要音乐同步,但由于时间被拉长,在梦中的人可能会听错(雪山),至少这声音已经不像是音乐了,而且每次只需要梦主带上耳机就可以了;酒店中Fischer和潜意识的Browning的对话,正是Fischer内心矛盾的斗争,自己对Browning越是怀疑,潜意识的Browning就越心虚;电影其实是倒叙,片头Cobb和老人的见面正是片尾Cobb回去找留在limbo的Saito;Cobb在厕所把陀螺掉在了地上被路过的Saito看到,解释了为什么片尾Saito会对陀螺有印象;Fischer在雨中城市被绑架时曾说:"把我钱包拿去,里面有500$." 解释了酒店中为什么Cobb会知道Fischer钱包里有多少钱;Yusuf在翻Fischer物品时找到了一张他和父亲玩风车的照片,这正是盗梦小组在保险柜内放置风车的原因;在Saito的梦中、给Ariadne上造梦课时、Fischer的几层梦境中、limbo中Cobb都戴着婚戒,而火车上、招兵买马时、飞机上、最后家中他都没戴……
    最后到底是梦境还是现实?我觉得这并不是我们该纠结的问题,就像Cobb最后做的,先是拿出陀螺验证一下现在到底是否回到了现实,但当他看到自己儿女久违的的脸孔后,喜悦让他早已忘记了这件事,最后,无论陀螺有没有停,他都是幸福的。(当然我是倾向于停的- -)

INCEPTION(国译:奠基/盗梦空间,港译:潜行凶 间)在香港上映一段时间了,该片感觉上是MATRIX和OCEAN ELEVEN的综合体,加上些许EVA的混沌开放式结局。建议没有看过的筒子们,如果要阅读以下内容一定要三思再三思,看过剧情讨论后影片观赏度会大大打 折。

Extraction(盗取想法)的关键:00:29:21
在梦境中构造一个监狱或者银行之类的安全场所,目标对象(subject)会不由自主地把想要保护的想法安置进去,然后盗取即可(片头开始就是一次二维梦境的盗取示范,目标对象Saito)。
That's one of the ways we extract information from the subject.
By creating something secure, like a bank vault or a jail.
The mind automatically fills it with information it's trying to protect.
You understand? Then you break in and steal it?

(二) 造梦师受外界影响时对梦境的改变问题
在inception任务中,Yusuf是第一层造梦师,Arthur第二层,Eames(Forger,变装怪蜀黍)第三层,和电影开始时的设定一样,造梦师为了维持他负责梦境的稳定,不能和其他人进入下一层。在第一层中,Yusuf开车下桥,让车里已经进入第二三四层的人也感受到了无重力,并且使得第二层也进入了无重力状态。此时的问题就在于,为何第三第四层没有进入无重力?电影中受伤的Satio在进入二三层之后所受到枪伤的影响依次减弱,可以解释Eames和Arthur一样在第一层空中受到了无重力作用,但是因为比Arthur多一层,所以受到第一层的直接影响理论上讲要少。但是,影片中当第一层的van开下桥,Arthur的第二层也进入了无重力状态,此时身处第二层酒店里的Eames应该受到严重影响,导致第三层进入无重力才对。

  1. 带领他人进入梦境,他人会把自己的潜意识加入这个梦 境,潜意识会塑造出来各种人物寻找做梦的人,严重时甚至会攻击做梦的人。进入的梦境层数越多,代表进入的潜意识越深。
    3. 第N层梦境的1分钟=第N 1层梦境的12分钟;若是用催眠试剂B,第N层梦境的1分钟=第N 1层梦境的20分钟。
    www.55402.com:英斯ption完全剧透之实验报告,严重剧透。4. 梦境必须从顶层(设为N 1层)返回,从N 1层梦境只能返回N层,返回N层之后才能返回N-1层,如此递推。
  2. 从N 1层返回N层的方法有:N 1层梦境中死亡,N 1层梦境和N层梦境同时kick. 若N=0,可以通过等待N层梦境(即现实)中造梦机时间到而回到N层梦境。若N>0,则需要所有层的梦境同时kick返回第一层。
  3. 如果使用催眠试剂B,在任何一层梦境中死亡即会到达“滞留梦境”limbo, limbo的时间标尺非常大,具体未知。人到达 limbo之后记忆会模糊,而要离开limbo首先必须现实中的药效已过,然后本身必须自觉身处幻境并愿意离开,方法只有死亡,死亡后直接回到现实。

=====================================================

反过来Inception(植入想法),需要构造一个足够安全的场所(保险箱、堡垒),在其中放置伪造的内容,让目标对象读取并接受。

(三) 这群人最终是如何醒来回到现实世界的?
电影的设定中,醒来有多种方式,都在电影一开始的侵入Satio任务中有所体现:
1.死亡:Arthur在第二层中被Cobb射杀,回到第一层。
2.kick:Cobb在第一层中被kick,从第二层回到第一层。
3.时间到:Satio在现实世界的火车上从第一层醒来。
按照inception任务中刚刚进入第一层时Cobb的说法,他们在第一层将有一周时间,但是没有预计到Fischer有潜意识守卫,所以必须速战速决抓紧时间进入二三层。不然他们撑不过这一星期。所以从进入第一层到van落水,在第一层里时间仅仅过了几个小时而已!
任务完成后,无论是一直在第一层的Yusuf还是从后几层回来的Arthur,Eames和Ariadne,都必须继续在第一层里过完一个星期。因为他们不能自杀(嗑了药,怕进入limbo),飞机上也没有kick(一是没条件,二是考虑到下一层的情况对于上一层是未知的,现实中空姐不可能提前跑过去将他们推倒)。
Fischer的潜意识守卫不会因为他被植入败家想法而消失。这一点可以从inception任务的第二层之后看出,当时Cobb实用Mr.Charles 骗术,伪装成Fischer的潜意识守卫,让Fischer在之后的进程中主意识一直与inception小组一伙儿。此时真正的潜意识守卫依然能够识别外来者,并攻击他们。
所以他们四人是怎么撑过这一周的?

实验报告一
实 验人:Cobb & Mal (Cobb之妻)
实验目的:探究梦境
实验步骤:

本文纯粹探讨影片的争议点,不牵扯演员的表演、内容深度、剧情走向等艺术性问题。

【名词解释】
Inception(植入想法)
--00:19:29 If you can steal an idea from someone's mind... ...why can't you plant one there instead?

(四)是否真的有第四层?(个人观点,有误请指出)
主流观点上,第四层也就是Cobb和Ariadne为了找回Fischer(富二代)一起进入的世界。
但是,我认为,第四层并不存在,实际上Fischer已经堕入limbo!
此时Fischer已经被射杀了,注意,是射杀。台词是这样的:
-Eames: What happened?
-Ariadne: Mal killed Fischer? (这里我看的字幕版本是句号,但是语气明显有疑问口气)
-Cobb: I couldn't shoot her.
-Cobb: There's no use in reviving him. His mind is trapped down there.
www.55402.com:英斯ption完全剧透之实验报告,严重剧透。从Cobb的语气十分肯定,可以看出,Fischer此时已经与Satio一样,在梦中“死了”。在电影之前的解释中,嗑药以后“死了”,是要进入limbo的。
那么limbo是什么?是意识边缘的一个空泛的世界。
影片中的原句是这样的:
-Ariadne: Limbo?
-Arthur: Unconstructed dream space.
-Ariadne: WTH is down there?
-Arthur: Just raw, infinite subconscious. Nothing is down there, except for whatever might have been left behind by anyone sharing the dream who’s been trapped down there before. Which in our case is just you (Cobb).
Inception任务中,一共有7人,他们之间存在物理联系(现实世界中用机器相连)。所以无论谁在梦中“死了”,其精神都会迷失在有Cobb和Mal花50年共建的limbo里。
而梦中再用机器相连可以看做是VLAN虚拟局域网,虚拟局域网优先级高于物理联系,当VLAN存在时VLAN外部的用户无法访问VLAN内部,一旦VLAN被破坏,不存在内外之分,各个用户之间数据包进行广播。
从剧情设定上来讲,每深一层,梦境的复杂程度都要小一些,但是“第四层”明显充斥着各种高楼大厦以及精细的细节,而且有Cobb有提到这里的种种回忆。并且Cobb与Ariadne进入这个世界时,和最后Cobb被Satio的卫兵发现时的海岸是一样的。可见这不是常规的第四层而是Fischer“死后”所在的世界,limbo。
另外,Ariadne把Fischer从高楼上推下去以后自己跳下去二人依次在第三层醒来。种跳跃不属于kick(前面有解释)所以真正让他们醒来的是落地造成死亡!没错,是在limbo里的死亡!Limbo里死亡之后可以回到他死前的那个层面里。比如Fischer在第三层原地满血满状态复活,其实是刷新了他的状态(这个状态由真实世界中Fischer的健康状态而定,就是当优先级最高那个VLAN崩塌之后重新建立联系)。而Cobb和Satio都是在第一层“死”的(Satio中枪Cobb溺水)影片最后老年Satio 在枪杀了Cobb之后自杀,直接在飞机上起来,因为第一层的造梦师Yusuf已经醒来(时间已到大家都醒了),他构建的梦境坍塌。但S,C二人的物理联系还在,顾能够在同一个limbo里跳过第一层梦境直接回到现实。这与limbo里老年Cobb与Mal卧轨回到现实一样(他们之中的造梦师并没有停留在其所在层级,导致前面的层级坍塌)

  1. 连上造梦机,深入梦境数层,到达了limbo,并把limbo当成了现实。
  2. 两人在其中生活了50年,利用两人的回忆建造了一个世界。
    3. Mal拒绝承认自己身处梦境的事实,把能提醒她这一点的陀螺锁在她从小长大的房子的保险柜里。
    4. Cobb找到陀螺后发现自己身处梦境并得知了Mal的心意,为了使Mal离开,他给Mal植入了“Our world is not real, and death is the only escape”的观念。
  3. 两人卧轨自杀回到现实。
    实验结果:
    Cobb给Mal植入的观念始终挥之不去,最终Mal选择了在他们的结婚周年纪念日跳楼自杀离开这个“梦境”,并留下各种证据嫁祸给Cobb试图逼迫Cobb自杀与她一起离开,Cobb从此逃亡并成为梦境大盗。

基本上,最让人纠结的是结局!看到电影结束时,有观众愤而离场,可能是认为结局指整部影片是个梦境,所以出离愤怒。不过,其实对于结局有百般议论,各有各的理解。应该说,该片没有真正意义上解开谜团,而确是故意留了个开放式结局,你可以认为是happy ending,也可以认为依然是梦境,全权由观众自行解读。

Extraction(盗取想法)
00:03:15 Yes. In the dream state, your conscious defenses are lowered...… and that makes your thoughts vulnerable to theft. It's called extraction.

关于Cobb与Mal当年的事迹,Cobb自己是这样说的:
We were working together. We were exploring the concept of a dream within a dream.I kept pushing things. I wanted to go deeper and deeper, I wanted to go further.I just didn’t understand the concept of that hours could turn into years down there, that we could get trapped so deep, that when we wound up on the shore of our own SUBCONSCIOUS(limbo), we lost sight of what was real. We created. We built the world of ourselves. We did that for years(something like 50 years). We built our own world. (这里画面中出现的是两个老人在牵手)
先驱啊,感叹一下。影片中Cobb通过对Mal进行inception然后二人卧轨,在limbo里实际上已经很老了,只是画面上来看还是年轻的人。这一段Cobb说他们两个old souls woke up in young bodies.以及最后Cobb 和Mal 对话时浮现的回忆画面,两人卧轨时的确是老人的手十指相扣。

实验报告二
实验人:Cobb, Arthur & Nash
实验目的:窃取Saito保险柜中的文件资料
实验步骤:

我看了一些评论,主要来自这篇:

Architect(设计师)
00:23:52 They don't actually come into the dream. They just design the levels and teach them to the dreamers. That's all.

  1. Cobb, Arthur & Nash和Saito同搭一辆火车,给Sait下药(试剂A),待其昏迷后四人连上造梦机,进入第一层梦境——Saito的Apartment
  2. 再次连上造梦机,Cobb, Arthur & Saito进入第二层梦境——Saito的宫殿,Cobb与Saito交涉,向他解释人的潜意识比较脆弱,容易被人窃取思想,并表示愿意保护Saito,条件是Saito要对其完全公开包括保险箱内的文件内容,Saito表示会考虑然后离开。
    3. Cobb入室行窃开保险箱偷文件。Cobb潜意识投射的Mal出现,挟持Arthur要求Cobb退还文件,Cobb将Arthur击毙并带着文件逃跑, 并在逃跑过程中试图阅读文件。
  3. Arthur返回第一层梦境,由于第一层梦境中附近的 爆炸事件导致第二层梦境中宫殿崩坍,Saito被 天花板砸死返回第一层梦境攻击 Arthur,Arthur叫Nash将Cobb kick回来,Nash把Cobb连椅子推进浴缸。第二层梦境中水从窗户涌进,正在阅读完文件的Cobb返回第一层,制服了Saito。
    5. 火车上的帮手(日本小伙子)给Arthur听音乐提醒他时间快到了,由于Nash的失误,Saito意识到自己仍然在梦境,拒绝交代。
  4. 造梦机时间到,Arthur, Cobb, Nash依次醒来,离开Saito. 然后Saito醒来。
    实验结果:
    行动失败,Cobb & Arthur被Nash出卖,Saito请他们给竞争对手Fisher植入拆分其公司的思想,并表示可以帮助Cobb返回美国。

摘录一些我也想了很久的疑点解答:

Dreamer(做梦人)
00:29:14 Remember, you are the dreamer. You build this world.

实验报告三
实验人:Eames
实验目的:观察Fisher与其父亲的关系
实验步骤:
进入Browning的梦境,得知Fisher对小时候手持风车与父亲的合照很珍惜,并对父亲打碎镶嵌这张照片的镜框介 怀。
实验结论:
Fisher没有得到来自父亲的肯定。

Why is Saito so much older than Cobb when Cobb visits him in limbo?

Subject(目标对象)
00:26:49 We bring the subject into that dream, and they fill it with their subconscious.

实验报告四
实验人:Cobb, Arthur, Ariadne, Yusuf, Eames & Saito
实验目的:
使Fisher得到父亲对他的肯定,增强其自信,促进其拆分公司的决定
具体来说,第二层梦境要让Fisher认为I want to build something for my own; 第三层梦境要让Fisher觉得My father wants me to become someone else.
实验步骤:
Cobb: We have to improvise.
1. 实验人跟随Fisher同乘一辆飞机去LA,Cobb给Fisher下药(试剂B),待其昏迷后七人连上造梦机,进入第一层Yusuf的梦境——大雨的街道。Arthur抢获Taxis让Fisher搭乘,绑架其入仓库。途中,车被Fisher潜意识投射的火车撞,众人和Fisher潜意识投射的追击者枪战,Saito中弹。
2. 仓库内众人激烈争吵,Arthur指出Fisher有过使用造梦机的经验,并被训练成潜意识会攻击入侵者。Eames意欲将Saito射死让其返回现实。Cobb才告知大家实验原理6,众人了解limbo后拒绝再深入犯险,Cobb说服大家按计划继续。Fisher交不出父亲保险柜的密码后, Eames易容成Fisher公司的元老Browning和 Fisher套话得知Fisher对父亲留给他的“我很失望”的遗言不能释怀。

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.

Subconscious(潜意识)
00:26:47 You create the world of the dream. We bring the subject into that dream, and they fill it with their subconscious.

  1. Arthur & Eames扫清仓库附近的追兵,Yusuf开车离开,其余人在车上连机器进入第二层Arthur的梦境——宾馆。Eames易容为美女偷走Fisher的皮包,Cobb跟Fisher搭讪,让Fisher意识到自己身处梦境,先说服他相信自己只是他潜意识塑造出来的保护自己的人物,再促使他认为本来是他潜意识派出的杀手是第一层绑架他的人派出的,而这些人在试图进入他的梦境偷取保险柜的密码,再栽赃是Browning策划了这一切。
    4. Fisher潜意识投射的Browning交待绑架的初衷是担心Fisher要创造属于自己的公司,此层实验目的达到。Cobb建议Fisher将计就计进入 Browning的梦境寻找他想隐瞒的东西。Arthur留下看守保护并负责kick, 其余人连机器进入第三层Eames的梦境——雪地的医院。
    5. 第一层梦境中Yusuf被追杀得东倒西歪甚至翻车,导致了第二层梦境的重力加速度改变方向。被逼无奈下Yusuf决定提早跳桥并给Arthur听音乐预告kick,Arthur在旅馆里继续英勇杀敌,并把房间里进入睡眠状态的五个人捆起来塞进了电 梯。汽车坠桥,kick开始,第二层梦境进入失重状态,第三层梦境中雪崩。
    6. 为了赶上汽车接触水面的下一次kick,Fisher必须在二十分钟内进入医院完成与父亲的谈话。在众人的掩护下,Fisher来到了医院大厅。 由于Ariadne 告诉Cobb Eames加了一条进入医院的捷径,Cobb潜意识里的Mal再次出 现,Cobb一时心软手慢,Mal枪击了Fisher. Fisher进入limbo, Cobb宣布行动失败,准备逐层返回。
    7. 在Ariadne的建议下,Cobb和Ariadne跟随Fisher进入了limbo——Cobb和Mal花了五十年建造的世界搭救Fisher. Cobb找到了Mal与其辩论此处是梦境而一对儿女还在现实中等待自己回去照顾拒绝留下,并对曾经给Mal植入“Our world is not real, and death is the only escape”的观念导致其在现实中自杀身亡表示内疚。Ariadne找到被绑的Fisher.
  2. Saito拼着最后几口气保护了Fisher便咽气去了limbo. Arthur炸断电梯下面的电缆,在电梯底部装上炸弹,然后 给Eames听音乐提醒第二层的kick即将来到。Eames装好爆炸装置后电击Fisher,limbo中出现闪电,Ariadne将 Fisher扔下楼回应此kick,Fisher得以返回到第三层梦境。 汽车即将入水,Arthur引爆炸弹推动电梯往上升,撞到楼顶即形成一个kick.
    9. Fisher进入医院见到了临死的父亲,听到自己潜意识投射的父亲把遗言从“我失望于你”解释成“我失望于你试图成为我”,并看到父亲床头保险柜里保留的风车,与父亲的心结解开,第三层目标达到。 Eames按下爆炸开关,第四层梦境中的部分房屋倒塌,地动 山摇,Ariadne跳楼回应此kick回到第三层,医院倒塌的kick回应电梯撞楼顶的kick回到第二层,电梯爆炸的kick回应汽车入水的kick回到第一层。
    10. Cobb在limbo和Mal谈话,表示两人已经在梦境中过完一生,与自己的心结解开。留下来搭救Saito. 再次来到limbo的Cobb失了忆,与已经在limbo中年老的Saito见面。Cobb和所带陀螺的出现让Saito想起一些模糊的往事,Saito的话让Cobb慢慢想起来一切。Satio用枪射杀了Cobb然后自杀,双双返回现实中的飞机。
    实验结果:
    行动大获全胜,Cobb安全回到了美国,见到了长大了一点的一对儿女。

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.

Projection(投影)
00:29:09 - Who are the people?

现实和梦境的区分:

影片开场其实揭示整个inception任务最后的结局如何,一 直看到最后我才不得不拼命去回想这一幕。当Cobb找到Saito时,Saito已经年迈到满脸褶子,而Cobb却只是老上几年而已(发鬓有些变白)。由于看任务时,Saito在Level 3雪山军事基地时已经死掉陷入Limbo,而Cobb却是其数分钟后才进入Limbo,按照时间转换原则,的确可能Saito比他多过了几十年。

  • Projections of my subconscious.
  • Remember, you are the dreamer. You build this world. I am the subject. My mind populates it. You can literally talk to my subconscious. That's one of the ways we extract
    information from the subject.
  1. 在自己的梦中可以自行改变环境,现实中不可以。
    2. 使用个人独特的图腾,Cobb的是陀螺,Arthur的是色子,陀螺旋转不停代表在别人的梦中。
  2. 潜意识投射的人群会追踪做梦的人,表现为注视或围绕或 殴打,现实中的人群很正常。
  3. 如果在梦中,则无法回忆起自己如何到达现处环境。
    综上所述,Cobb最后在现实中。至于为什么不拍陀螺停下来的画面,跟从飞机上醒来以后画面 开始类似虚幻一样,诺兰的烟雾弹。

另外要在注意的是,Saito在Limbo状态下俨然创造了一个他的世界。这个世界和Cobb欲偷取Saito机密那个任务时所设定的梦中梦场景非常相像, 无论那个梦境是谁的,我们有理由怀疑那是让Saito无法辨认真伪的梦境,即使说和他日常生活比较接近。那是否在Limbo状态下的这个梦境,Saito 用了他的记忆来创造世界,从一个侧面质疑他已经无法辨别现实和梦境了。

Kick(坠落感、唤醒方式)
00:52:42 -This, Ariadne, would be a kick.

Inception 的各个人物:
Dreamer: 第一层Yusurf, 第二层Arthur, 第三层Eames. 作梦的主体,可用主观意愿操纵梦境,但不能操纵未碰过的别人的图腾。
(证据为:第一层Arthur打趣Yusurf不先去上个厕所导致梦里下雨。第二层Ariadne奇怪为何大家都在看他们,Arthur解释因为Cobb让Fisher意识到自己在作梦,所以Fisher的projection在寻找dreamer,也就是他;另外他在跟人搏斗过程中可以改变过楼梯的构造。第三层刚开始Cobb就冲着Eames喊It’s your dream! Do something 而且Eames加了一条通风管道的捷径进入医院)
Subject: 除Dreamer以外的人,给梦境带入各自的潜意识,各自的图腾会有不正常体现,可提醒 自己在别人的梦中。
Mark: Fisher, 目标人物。
Extractor: Cobb, 搜寻梦中人的思想提取有用的信息。
Architect: 前三层为Ariadne, 第四层/limbo为Cobb, 梦境设计者。
Chemist: Yusurf, 药剂师,提供试剂,保证入梦者打都打不醒,并增加梦中梦的稳定性。
Forger: Eames, 易容大师,需要超群的想象 力,能易容成目标人物熟悉的人物进行交流。除担任Forger的角色外,Eames也是行动的计划者,在一听到要植入的观念后就提出了要从Fisher和他父亲的关系入手,并制定了每一层的行动目标。
Point Man: Arthur, 善于发现问题并提出问题,”How can we get out?”, “ We need more than might. “ 作为经验丰富的盗梦者,Arthur在重力加速 度数次改变方向甚至消失的第二层梦境完美诠释了文武双全和随机应变——在不到三分钟的时间内迅速想出了失重状态下kick的办法。
Shade: Mal, Cobb潜意识的阴暗面,出现总是跟Cobb对着干。

这就给Saito举枪后的行动带来了疑惑,究竟是Cobb说服Saito,两人自杀来回到现实?还是Cobb无法说服Saito,而最终被Saito所杀?Saito没有脱离Limbo,而Cobb可能回到现实,可能陷入更深的Limbo……

  • It's that feeling of falling you get that jolts you awake.
  • Snaps you out of the dream.

名词解释
Shared Dream:
Cobb to Ariadne: You create the world of a dream, you bring the subject into that dream, and they fill it with their subconscious. You are the dreamer, I am the subject. My subconscious just populate your dream.
Ariadne: Why are they looking at me? Cobb: My subconscious realizes it’s someone else’s dream.
Ariadne: Let me show you the maze. Cobb: No, only the dreamer should know the details.

What was Arthur doing in the elevator scene?

Music(Kick同步倒数信号)
00:53:10 - We gonna feel a kick with this sedation?

Totem:
Arthur: It’s something unique. It lets you know you are not in someone else’s dream. You can’t touch my totem. If I let you do that, you will know its purpose.

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.

  • That's the clever part. I customized the sedative to leave
    inner-ear function unimpaired. That way, however deep the sleep,
    the sleeper still feels falling. Or tipping.
  • The trick is to synchronize a kick that can penetrate all three levels.
  • We could use a musical countdown
    to synchronize the different kicks.

Kick:
Arthur: How can we get out? Cobb: A kick. Ariadne: What is a kick? Cobb: The feeling of falling that slaps you out of a dream.
Arthur to Ariadne: Free fall is not a kick. Remember? We need the drop of gravity.

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.

Limbo(最深梦境、遗忘世界)
01:08:35- Right. So, what happens when we die?

Limbo:
Cobb: When you wake up in limbo, your mind is complete gone. Limbo will become your reality. You will be there waiting for dying alone.
Ariadne: What is in limbo? Arthur: Nothing, but raw subconscious except whatever has been constructed by the visitors who has been there, which in our case, Cobb.

By disconnecting the elevator from the cables and using an explosion to propel it, it is propelled as if there were gravity.

  • We drop into limbo.
  • Are you serious?
  • Limbo?
  • Unconstructed dream space.
  • What the hell is down there?
  • Just raw, infinite subconscious.
  • what might have been left behind... ...by anyone sharing the dream who's been trapped there before.
  • Which, in our case, is just you.
  • How long could we be stuck?
  • Can't even think about... ...trying to escape until the sedation...
  • How long?
  • Decades. It could be infinite.
  • Ask him, he's the one who's been there.

补充与说明:
Cobb,Arthur和Saito的第一次交手,Arthur在第二层梦境中死亡回到了第一层梦境,说明与催眠试剂B不同,故命此药名为催眠试剂A。
Cobb费尽心思让Mal自觉身处梦境而卧轨,说明不是单纯的死亡就能离开limbo.

Level 2的Kick看的我很迷惑,一开始Arthur在房间下放了定时炸弹,等待Level 3的Kick唤醒众人后,利用爆炸时将众人摔到下层房间而完成Kick。但是由于Level 1的Kick是货车从几十米高的桥上掉入水面,在降落的过程中,Level 2受影响而完全处于失重状态。Arthur认为即使爆炸后,因为失重众人并不会有freefall,而是漂浮在房间里无法醒来。所以他临时将众人转移至电梯里,利用爆炸威力推电梯,使众人受到撞击而完成Kick。这个设定,其实只要爆炸的力度够,在房间里还是电梯里其实都可以完成,炸开房间地板应该也会造成冲力,使众人受到Kick。只是,唯一的危险是,如果不小心炸死了其中的成员,在多重梦境下,他们未必会回到Level 1,而是可能陷入Limbo。不过Arthur不是不知道这些吗?

Totem(图腾,用于测试是否处于他人梦境)
00:34:11 - Yeah. So a totem. You need a small object, potentially heavy. Something you can have on you that no one else knows.
-That way, when you look at your totem... ...you know beyond a doubt that you're not in someone else's dream.

--------------我是可怜的英语听 力,记忆力和逻辑分析能力耗尽的分界线-------------------
几点我不确定的地方:
 1. Cobb和Mal度过50年后卧轨时为何仍然年轻?Cobb和Mal度过50年和Mal藏陀螺继而Cobb给Mal植入观念最后两人卧轨自杀的梦境不是一层吗?那到底哪层是limbo?

而Arthur作为point man,似乎搞砸了很多任务。他没有查清Fisher受过反盗梦训练,让任务小组由头到尾都在受到Fisher映射的卫兵追杀,导致Saito在 Level 1受到重创最后在Level 3死掉,导致之后所有计划都被严重干扰。另外,看起来他们很清楚Level 1的Kick是货车落水(Yusuf开车到桥面,怎么看都很像一早就计划好的),而Arthur却似乎忘记了考虑失重状态,最后不得不十分幸苦又危险的把众人转移到电梯里。

==剧情框架==
【Level 0-现实世界】
-场景:飞机
-Dreamer:-
-Architect:-
-目的:Saito:搞定商业竞争对手富二代Fischer Cobb:Saito承诺任务完成后可以让他回到美国家人身边
-Kick:-
-备注:Mal曾在这层因为Inception的后遗症自杀

  1. 图 腾的作用到底是判断是否在别人的梦里还是判断是否在梦里? 我选择相信前者最主要是因为Arthur的定义。另外这样也可解释为何现实中Mal的陀螺会停下她却仍然相信自己在梦中,她给出的理由是这是Cobb的梦境而 因为Cobb碰过这个陀螺所以它失效了。从另一个角度说,因为判断是否为自己的梦境应 该很容易,需要图腾的时候只有可能是现实或者别人的梦,所以说它可以区别现实和梦境也未尝不可。
    3. 在得知死亡会导致去imbo后,大家被Cobb说服继续任务的理由是在第一层待一个星期一定会被干掉。可是不管是否接着 深入梦境,任务是否完成,他们不是都得在第一层待一个星期?还是说改造后的Fisher就不再派人出来追杀他们了?
  2. 为什么Cobb说Fisher被枪击后mind 被trap了无法被唤醒?似乎Fisher是被Mal带到第四层梦境关起来了,为什么Cobb投射出来的Mal可以做到这一点?第四层梦境究竟谁是Dreamer? Ariadne说follow Fisher, 所以应该是Fisher? Fisher醒来以后Cobb和Ariadne还在里面是否合理?
    5. 第四层梦境是不是limbo?是limbo可以解释4,但是又解释不了为什么Cobb和Ariadne在里面那么清醒,以及为什么他们不用同样的方法把 Satio救回来。

在整个团队里,似乎只有他(而不是半途被拉进来的女孩Ariadne)犯了这些低级而致命的错误。他真是个被Cobb认为异常出色的point man吗?他是有意犯这些错误的吗?他的设定偏差,是真实的瑕疵,是Cobb的映射,还是导演故意留下的埋线?

【Level-1】
-场景:雨中城市
-Dreamer:Yusuf(不能睡,一直开车,Kick负责人,负责给下一level dreamer Arthur放音乐)
-Architect:Ariadne
-目的:Forger Eames假扮peter大叔取得Fischer父亲临终遗言和6位数字
-Kick:汽车坠河
-备注:Fischer受过训练潜意识具备武装能力,Saito不幸中弹

-------------------------------我是坦白从宽的分界线---------------------------
我是一个大白板,为了上豆瓣讨论inception注册的帐号,讨论一两天以后自己写了这个,写完以后带着问题又去看了一遍电影,回来大改了一次,算是给豆瓣的一份答卷,这样我就终于不是大白板啦!
很多想法都来自黑白光影的评论及其跟贴特别是陪我讨论的Z兄,在此特别感谢。
不过现在觉得还是不要想得太深入的好,差不多是那么回事就好了~~

What exactly is a kick?

【Level-2】
-场景:宾馆
-Dreamer:Arthur(不能睡,一直打斗漂浮,Kick负责人,负责给下一level dreamer Eames放音乐)
-Architect:Ariadne
-目的:Cobb假装保护Fischer骗取信任、动摇信念并诱使其进入Level3
-Kick:通过爆炸的气流推动电梯坠落
-备注:-

-------------------------------我是快要抓狂的分界线---------------------------
最后的镜头小女孩的衣服是不一样的,梦里面都是穿一件粉红色的连衣裙,最后穿的是一件T外面套一条粉红色的背带裙,而且她长高了。 结果满世界都说小孩没变衣服没变-_-

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.

【Level-3】
-场景:雪地堡垒
-Dreamer:Eames(不能睡,一直枪战,Kick负责人,负责炸碉堡kick没死的人,负责给Fischer心肺复苏)
-Architect:Ariadne
-目的:让Fischer从堡垒中的保险门里的医院场景中的保险箱中取出风车,认为父亲不希望自己变成父亲那样的企业家,任务最终完成
-Kick:碉堡坍塌
-备注:Fischer被Mal打成重伤昏迷进入Level4,Saito重伤挂掉直接进入Limbo

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.

【Level-4】
-场景:废墟都市
-Dreamer:Cobb
-Architect:Cobb(之前是因为担心Mal了解梦境设计,所以Cobb不能自己当设计师,这次进入Level4就是为了找到Mal并找到被Mal带走的Fischer,所以Cobb可以自己设计梦境)
-目的:Cobb&A:去找回富二代Fischer返回Level3完成任务
-Kick:Ariadne&Fischer主动跳楼
-备注:这时所有人都在Level1苏醒了,但Cobb淹死在车里进入Limbo,Saito之前就枪伤过重提前进入Limbo,所以在Limbo里Saito比Cobb老很多

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.

【Level-5 Limbo】
-场景:片头片尾的海边,Cobb面对老人版Saito
-Dreamer:-
-Architect:-
-目的:必须救Saito才能让现实中的Saito兑现承诺回到孩子身边
-Kick:互相提醒后想起来是在梦境,自杀后两人回到现实的飞机上
-备注:Cobb&Mal 之前曾经到过Limbo,但Mal不想回到现实。Cobb通过第一次尝试Inception让Mal同意卧轨自杀后回到现实

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.

豆瓣不支持富文本编辑排版好累

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).

归结一下,Kick的几种方式:

做梦者需要以一种镇静剂来进入共享梦境,在镇静剂未失效的情况下,为了唤醒N层的人,在N层梦境可以用Kick(使做梦者感受到自由落体)而唤醒他们,但在N 1层就只能靠死亡脱离梦境。简单来说,要主动脱离只能靠死亡, 被动脱离(被旁人唤醒)则可以用Kick。特例是在找回Fisher时,在Level 3时Eames用电击Fisher,同时在Level 4里Ariadne拉着Fisher主动Kick,这样把已经死亡的Fisher从Level 4拉回Level 3。

而在多层梦境中,在镇静剂未失效的前提下,主动死亡却未必能脱离梦境,而反向被拖入更深层的Limbo状态,这就是Cobb他们拖着受重视的Saito而不能让他死亡返回现实的原因。Limbo是意识和潜意识的边缘地带,是梦境也是混沌状态。在Limbo状态下,人的思想受潜意识影响增大,而理性意识受到压抑,逐渐分不清真实与虚幻,并渐渐将Limbo当做真实世界。

但是Limbo状态下的情况依旧比较混乱,Cobb所言认识到Limbo世界是假象后自杀可以脱离Limbo,但是很多人质疑片头Saito枪杀了Cobb后,Cobb陷入了更深层的Limbo,而结局是Cobb在Limbo中建立的世 界。我比较偏向该作者的想法,要脱离Limbo状态,必须说服自己这是个虚假世界,而主动离开(自杀,Kick需要上层同时唤醒),如果是相信Limbo 世界而被杀,并不会回到现实,而陷入更深的混沌,并且混沌状态时间无限。

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.

其实争议最多的就是Limbo层,究竟是一个梦境还是混沌状态,即Level 4(图中的Level 5)是不是Limbo,还是Cobb的梦境。个人偏向于相信Cobb的梦境处于混沌和理性之间,在Level 3他和Ariadne主动进入梦境,在那个梦境里他们找到了Fisher,此时的Fisher事实上在Level 3死亡而陷入Limbo,所以Cobb的梦境可以连接到Limbo,也许因为他去过那里。这里其实很偷换概念,Fisher和Ariadne用Kick离 开梦境,而Cobb被Mal刺伤,没有主动Kick以离开梦境。也许他伤重死去而进入Limbo(则Level 4为Cobb的梦境),也许他没有死却逗留在这里(则这层已经是Limbo),答案不得而知。

So what happened at the end? (选几个我认为可能的答案)

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.

这并非我看完电影后想到的解释,但是目前我比较相信这种说法。结局最末,Cobb终于得以撤销罪名回家看望孩子,那段实在太过匪夷所思。如果Saito拥有一个电话就搞定通缉犯的那种权势,他至于需要Cobb带领整个团队(自己还跟着出生入死)去瓦解一个对手公司吗?而Cobb回到家后,家里摆设丝毫没有改变过,孩子们的动作姿态服侍跟回忆镜头一摸一样,依旧是梦境映射中的朦胧样子,让人不得不质 疑那是不是真实世界。

Cobb自己也说过,梦境里会有些愚蠢的设定、不合理的情节,但是做梦的人自己无法察觉。像Cobb执念要回美国看孩子,于他已经成了个执念。但为何周围没有一个人,去提醒他“不必回美国,把孩子们带出国不就可以见到了”,一如他在巴黎见他的老丈人。这种只有在梦境里才不被质疑的设定,也许是在暗示整个inception任务都是一场梦境。

Cobb的老丈人是个伏笔,他是比Cobb更高明的人物, 他教授了Cobb盗梦等技巧,他介绍了Ariadne给Cobb。而Cobb对这个初初相识的女孩子尤其交心,只有她得以知道他的Totem,只有她分享他的梦境,而她不断的开导他,令他意识到Mal的死责任并不在自己。等到最后Cobb承认自己的inception间接导致了Mal的死亡,是Ariadne射杀了Mal。

让人怀疑的一幕主要来自Miles在机场接机。他满脸欢笑,一副如释重负的样子迎接了Cobb,我们都知道inception任务中Cobb完成了自我救赎,从杀害Mal的负罪感中解脱出来,这也许才是Miles如此释怀的原因。而一直没有参与行动的 Miles又怎会知道Cobb的感受,原因只能是他其实参与了行动,甚至就是他策划了行动,Ariadne也许真是他的forge。

也许最后的ending的确是真实发生过的,Cobb早就回到家中和孩子团聚了。他从来都没有因为Mal的死而遭受过通缉(Mal死前告诉警察受Cobb威胁的设定总有点说不通),但是Miles发现他一直无法从Mal的死中释怀,所以计划了这出inception,目的是把“Cobb不必为Mal的死负疚”这个idea植入他的想法。孩子们嬉戏的镜头其实是已经发生过的事情,Cobb会在梦境中一遍遍看见他们,甚至在最后ending都是如此一幕,是因为此时他仍然在梦境中。但是他这次已经释怀了,再Kick多一次他就能回到现实,并使他带着这个idea回来,可以正常的融入生活中。相信这是个happy ending。

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?

支持这个想法的人,多半取信于Cobb的图腾。认为螺旋来自于Mal,所以不能用其分辨真伪世界,而Cobb的 图腾其实是他的婚戒。他只有在梦境中才戴着婚戒,但是现实世界里从不见他戴。而在最后结局时,他并没有戴婚戒,所以认为结局是现实世界。

另 一种说法是,演员表上饰演Cobb和Mal的两个孩子,共有四名演员,年龄相隔有大约两年。于是认为,其实Cobb离开家有两年时间。不过我个人认为,小 婴儿演员是在沙滩上玩沙时,以及Cobb和Mal吵架时的演员,不是说他们在Cobb离家时有成长。

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.

这其实最像导演希望我们去猜测的结局。进入Limbo状态后导演并没有明确说发生了什么。Saito拿起枪来,到Cobb在飞机中醒来,中间发生了什么我们不得而知。Cobb在Limbo世界中,创造了一个属于他的世界,在那个世界里他和孩子们相聚,并且幸福的生活着。他似乎已经无法分清现实和虚幻,被一直禁锢在混沌状态里。

估计补完计划什么的是不可能的,各说各有理,100个人心中有 100个哈姆雷特的片子了。
