Nolan's masterpiece, Inception (also translated as the foundation stone), finally caught the last bus of the summer file. This movie he conceived since he was 17 years old is really applauded and hit the box office. Not only is the picture compact and beautiful, but the plot is deep and powerful, which attracts people's imagination. Personally, it is a hot spot for Olympic Games this year. However, how much can we understand about the element setting and plot relationship of the film in one movie?

I think the best time to watch this film is three times: the first time to seek novelty, the second time to understand, and the third time to verify one's understanding. This is a very complicated film. Behind the excitement of good-looking, I wonder how much effort the director has made to achieve this effect. Those who express will always think more than those who understand. When choosing this dangerous proposition, the director must have thought deeply about how to be attracted by the plot itself when the audience is confused. After all, two and a half hours of movie time is a little pale for expressing this huge world outlook.

The director deliberately inserted several pieces to dispel doubts and echo at the end of the film, just to make the audience suddenly realize and forget some doubts about the details before. However, after watching the film with the creator's heart, I have made a careful study of the details and world settings of the film. The following is my understanding of the film. If you know this for the first time, please don't laugh!

First, set the article:

Question 1: Why can't ideas be implanted in shallow dreams?

Qi Teng once asked Leonardo's associates on a helicopter if they could give people an impression, and the answer was impossible-because people would wake up and find that they were dreaming, and they would understand that everything in that world was false, so the idea of implantation would also be considered false.

But later, we understand that in the deep dream, Robles, the rich second generation, looked for his will by his own strength, and made him think that it was the truth hidden in his uncle's heart, thus he accepted the idea that "his father wanted to be independent".

Question 2: The relationship between dream designers and dreamers?

Two different concepts. People who design dreams are not necessarily dreamers. This problem was proved at the beginning when Leonardo found the dreamer girl. In Leonardo's dream, girls can easily violate physical phenomena and change the world according to their own design-the price is that passers-by in the dream will be hostile to invaders.

However, the dreamer can design dreams without substituting them in person. The evidence is that Leonardo once told the girl that you don't need to enter the dream, but the girl retorted that you need someone who understands you better in the dream.

It needs to be added that the reason why Leonardo's dead wife will appear in every dream is precisely for this reason-I don't think there is any need for totem, as long as I see his wife, I can find myself in a dream.

Question 3: Why do you need to Kick in deep dreams! Disdain the "crossing" of mainland translation) to return to a higher level of space?

Pharmacists once said that the sedatives prepared by themselves will not affect the function of the middle ear. The middle ear is an important part of keeping a sense of balance. Once falling out of balance, people will wake up. Leonardo asked pharmacists to accompany him, precisely because he needed to mix this unbalanced and sober medicine in his dreams.

Question 4: Who are the dreamers on each floor?

Level 1: Pharmacist. Make it look like Robles was kidnapped.

The second floor: Robles. Because time is short, Leonardo needs to pretend to be a bodyguard to gain trust and create the illusion that Robles is looking for his will by his own will.

The third layer: Yi Rong Shi. Robles thinks he entered his uncle's dream.

Question 5: What is the purpose of each layer of dreams?

When Yi Rong and Leonardo and his party discussed how to Inception, they mentioned that because people's "negative ideas" will be replaced by "positive ideas" in the subconscious, it is impossible for Robles to implant such ideas as "I hate my father" and "resist my father". Master Yi Rong then put forward the idea that Robles thought that "his father didn't want him to inherit his old work" and "he wanted him to be independent". Therefore, the three layers of dreams have a division of labor.

The first layer: let Robles think that his father does have a second will.

The second layer: let Robles begin to doubt his uncle's intentions, and make sure that his uncle knows the contents of the second will, and then hope to enter his uncle's consciousness.

The third level: find the second will. At the end of the story, Robles walked into the vault of the hospital, saw a childhood windmill lying under the second will, and knew that his father had a deep fatherly love and expectation besides feeling "dismissed" when he died, thus comprehending that his father didn't want him to imitate his own thoughts blindly-I don't think Robles really thought his father had a second will when he woke up, but the idea that "my father didn't want me to imitate him" would stay deeply, which is also an Inception.

Question 6: Why do you need to listen to headphones in your dreams?

First of all, listening to headphones does not awaken dreams. Music is just a signal. Although people's perception organs become more dull every time they go deep into a dream (for example, Qi Teng's injuries on the first floor are delayed on the second and third floors), music can run through different levels of hearing. Because of this, people on the third floor can hear the sound when pharmacists wear headphones for dreamers.

The awakening of deep dreams needs to be carried out simultaneously from bottom to top. If the timing of Kick is out of sync, for example, people on the first floor have woken up while people on the third floor are still in their dreams, then there is no one on the second floor who can help him Kick.

At that time, music plays a countdown role. The person who stays in each floor must try to Kick everyone-the first floor rushes into the sea, the second floor impacts the elevator, and the third floor explodes the hospital, which are all the same reasons.

Question 7: How does reality affect dreams?

In what form are changes in reality transmitted to dreams? For example, seeing seawater coming in from all directions, avalanches, earthquakes ... These are the same reasons as dreaming of the sea or bathtub when you wet your bed as a child.

Therefore, people who die in reality will die in dreams. People who die in dreams, if they are drugged by pharmacists in reality, will fall into the edge of consciousness-they can only commit suicide and wake up there for decades, but people who enter the edge of consciousness will not remember this method.

Question 8: The view of time in dreams?

The increment between layers is 20 times. For example, in reality, two hours in a flight is equivalent to two days on the first floor, one month on the second floor and two years on the third floor. The so-called edge of consciousness refers to the space where people can't wake up without committing suicide, and that space is shared by all. The evidence is that Robles and Qi Teng can be found at the same time on the edge of consciousness, and the city built by Leonardo and his wife appears.

Second, the plot:

Inception 1: How did Leonardo's inspiration to his wife take effect?

As he himself said, a small idea can spread like cancer. The purpose of his wife's "totem" in a safe is to convince herself that dreams are reality. The purpose of Leonardo's spinning gyro is to let his wife regain her doubts about dreams, so that she is willing to follow her husband back to reality. However, after returning to reality, this little idea of "wondering about dreams" infected the original idea, which made her feel confused about reality and eventually committed suicide.

Question 2: Why does his wife always ruin Leonardo's good deeds in her dreams?

To be precise, it is the "wife's shadow". It is the projection of Leonardo's imagination of his wife in dreams. At the end of the film, Leonardo expressed his "guilt" towards his wife, perhaps because of this guilt, Leonardo always felt that his wife would retaliate against him, so the projection of his wife in dreams was always negative.

Question 3: Why did Leonardo find Qi Teng on the edge of consciousness?

Because the edge of consciousness is an undifferentiated space, just like the real world, there is only one space for anyone. On the edge of consciousness, people often forget the way back to the upper space. The evidence is that Leonardo forgot his purpose of looking for Qi Teng at first, and Qi Teng lived in it for a long time until he grew old. Until Leonardo appeared, he regained his memory.

Third, the remaining problems:

Question 1: Why did Leonardo and his wife grow old together on the edge of consciousness, but they were young when the train committed suicide?

Question 2: Did Leonardo return to reality at the end of the story?

However, it's always a good thing to leave questions in movies. White space is also an expression. In a word, this is a complex film and television work with both breadth and depth, which can be said to be a pioneering work of one type (it is estimated that few people can shoot this type). Director Nolan is only 40 years old this year, and his future is limitless. I believe those who have seen Inception have every reason to look forward to his next work eagerly.
