5 things about Inception you probably already know

  1. The musical cue used to warn the dreamers of an upcoming kick is "Non, Je ne regrette rien" by Edith Piaf. In English thats "No, I regret nothing," a fitting theme for the film, and Marion Cotillard who played Cobb's wife Mal won the Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Piaf in "The Passionate Life of Edith Piaf".
  2. Hans Zimmer uses the Edith Piaf song, and the time distortion from the dream state as a key to the films musical score.
  3. The Ellen Page character is named Ariadne, after he daughter of King Minos of Crete in Greek mythology. In the story, she gives a sword and a ball of red fleece thread to Theseus so he can find his way out of the maze of the minotaur. In Inception, she wears a lot of red, in addition to her maze making and hero leading.

  4. Christopher Nolan reuses imagery from his Batman movies. Posters from both Inception and The Dark Knight are painfully similar.

    Also Cillian Murphy does seem to spend a lot of time in the back of vans with a bag over his head.

  5. The stolen kiss between Arthur and Ariadne is the kernel of a thousand works of fanfiction.
