Did you leave "Inception" wondering if you "got it"?
Worry not. This week, nerds worldwide have been purchasing the film on DVD and dissecting the footage like a dank owl pellet. Expected recut breakdowns of the film's complicated plot to clog up YouTube in… now.
Here's the first, a decidedly simple look at the film's use of time as a narrative device.
In case you missed "Inception" at theaters, the plot involves dreams that take place on multiple levels. Dreams within dreams within dreams!
The deeper the dream, the slower time moves.
To show this, YouTube user wikang cut the film's footage together to show all dreams transpire in real-time, one beside another. It sort of works in terms of representing the pace of the dream, but more importantly, the presentation gives the viewer a rough idea of who was where when.
If it still doesn't make a lick of sense, that's okay, because BWAHHHHHH!
