If you’re having trouble making sense of Inception, you’re not alone.
Even Inception’s stars are having a hard time understanding the plot.
No kidding, folks.
How much more ridiculous can it get!
Here’s an excerpt from the WSJ’s interview with Tom Berenger, who has a supporting role in the film:
What was your first impression of the story?
I went, whoa. I took my time with it. I didn’t race. But I have to say, after I finished it, if anybody had interrogated me under torture to tell them what exactly the plot was, I’d be hard put.
Did shooting demystify the material?
One time I started laughing on set. The little girl, Ellen [Page], she goes, ‘Wait a minute, is this a dream within a dream?’ I went, ‘oh, yeah, good question.’ I kind of lost it. I talked to one of the other actors and he said, ‘I’ve seen it three times and it takes a couple of times for you to nail it.’
