Charts and Graphs: Inception Timeline
More great stuff keeps coming out about the film. As I type this, I am listening to an in-depth AV talk podcast discussing the movie. Last night, I posted the musical cue explanation that came out yesterday. And now, this: a great graphic visually detailing the timeline of the movie. Click image for a larger version.
More of the creator’s work can be found here, including a Pulp Fiction timeline.
The Inception music cue explained
A movie-nerd figured out a very interesting tidbit about the music cue most closely associated Inception.
From AV Club:
Significance? Well, in the movie, we learn that the further the heroes dive into a person’s subconscious–into a dream within a dream within a dream, and so on–the more slowed-down time becomes. So if composer Hans Zimmer is playing us a super-slowed-down version of “Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien,” then the implication is that we’re still submerged deep within the dream, far from the kick that will wake us up. Neat, huh?
