We invade Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” and interpret:

  • directing: riding the line between dramatic and hokey;
  • writing: creating a new universe, the meaning in a name;
  • the ending: what is the answer to this mind-spinning ending;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world. – Buddha

Todd mentions that Cobb tells Ariadne about Mal’s top prior to them getting on the airplane, and he is correct! At the 48 minute he tells her “This one was Mal’s, she’d spin it in a dream and it would never topple. Just spin and spin.”
