We just got this in our Netflix finally, and I found it fascinating! Little elements of The Matrix here and there yes? I think the cast was excellent, and Leo is really underrated. It was good to see Ellen Page as... quietly normal.  I found spiritual elements there as well. I think the art/cinematography was beautiful too. What did you all think?

We just saw it last week too, after missing it in the cinema last year. I enjoyed it. It was very cleverly done, and quite thought-provoking. We had a lot of discussion about how many different dream levels there were - and whether he was actually dreaming the entire thing.

Yes, I too liked is on so many levels lol.gif

May sound strange, but I really relate to this movie...I often feel I have one foot in this world, and one foot in another...

 

Loved how the movie finished wondering if he's still living a dream. 

Truly movie making at its best.

We watched it last weekend and really loved it! Very interesting and it's great to see Leonardo DiCaprio back to work. I've love him since seeing Titanic!

Yes! Got a bit of a debate with my fiance over that part LOL.

 

I related to this movie with the dream aspect so much. Dreams have always been a big thing for me and more so in recent years.

My husband wanted to see it, so we went and saw it in the theater when he had a day off.  Then we talked about it at length, but I had a disconnect with it in that the way dreams worked in that world were different enough than how dreams work for me.  But now, oddly enough, I can't remember specifically what it was.

I just finally watched it a few nights ago and am so glad to see this thread.  I LOVED it.  So much that I watched it again the next night just to see things I had missed.  My husband and son, not so much.

 

I also saw parts of the Matrix in it and brought it up to DH but he didn't really catch it. 

 

I guess I've wondered so many times if this life is really a dream, or if parts of my life were really dreams or whatever that the movies really resonated with me.  I also am big into lucid dreaming and have trained myself to be able to do certain things in my dreams so I thought it was pretty cool. 

 

I thought the plot, acting, cinematography were all pretty darn good too.  Really wish I had seen it on the big screen.  Actually, that was my FB post after I watched it!
