Michael Caine Explains the Inception Ending
Spoiler alert: If you’re that one person in the world who hasn’t seen Inception yet, stop reading.
The teetering top spinning at the end of Christopher Nolan’s dream-within-a-dream saga left some fans speculating that Leonardo DiCaprio’s character was not actually at home reunited with his children and that the whole movie was meant to be a dream. However, Michael Caine recently said that’s not the case.
Caine told BBC Radio 1 that the ending is meant to be reality.
“[The spinning top] drops at the end, that’s when I come back on,” he said. “If I’m there it’s real, because I’m never in the dream. I’m the guy who invented the dream.”
