Michael Caine clears up mysterious ‘Inception’ ending
HollywoodNews.com: Still debating the ending of “Inception” with your friends? Was Leonardo DiCaprio’s character dreaming?
Well, let Sir Michael Caine clear up the argument.
DiCaprio’s character in “Inception” would use a spinning top to determine whether he was dreaming or not. If the top fell over, it signified that DiCaprio was in real-time. If it continued to spin, it meant he was dreaming (a quick refresher for those fans who might have forgotten).
Speaking on U.K. Radio 1, Caine revealed that he, like moviegoers worldwide, was stumped by the finale in Christopher Nolan’s thriller. However, Caine asserts that the top actually topples – meaning DiCaprio has safely reunited with his children.
“It drops at the end, that’s when I come back on,” says Caine, “Young people say to me, ‘At the end, when you’re there, is it real or is it a dream?’ I say, ‘If I’m there, it’s real because I’m never in the dream’.”
The house where DiCaprio’s family lives in “Inception” allegedly use to be owned by NBC “Night Court” sitcom star Harry Anderson some years ago. The property resides in Pasadena.
