While doing press for his autobiography on BBC Radio, Michael Caine offered up his take on the ambiguous ending of Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi hit movie “Inception”. You remember, involving that pesky spinning top/Cobb’s totem? The ending that had you either gasping or smiling? Yeah, that ending.
Says the King of UK Cool (via Heat Vision):
[The spinning top] drops at the end, that’s when I come back on. If I’m there it’s real, because I’m never in the dream. I’m the guy who invented the dream.
So there you have it, from the mouth of Michael Caine himself.
Of course, this could just be Caine’s take on the ending, or it could be the actual ending that never made it into the film, or … well, you decide. That’s the whole point of Nolan’s ending, isn’t it?
