The Definitive Inception Dream Layer Map, Drawn by Christopher Nolan Himself

Illustration for article titled The Definitive iInception/i Dream Layer Map, Drawn by Christopher Nolan Himself

Inception! Terrific movie, but those dream layers got pretty darned confusing. Even, apparently, for the movie's director. Which is why Christopher Nolan made himself this little map to keep things straight. Spoilers, obviously.

The map comes from the book Inception: The Shooting Script, and while it may not have the kooky appeal of watching all the layers unfold in real time, it's a definitive tour guide to the movie's dream worlds.


And oh, yeah, by the way, there's no kick out of limbo. [io9, /Film via The High Definite]

zed nought!

Am I the only one who was never confused by this movie? It was a wonderful little mind frack, but never did I not know what was going on or lose where in reality a scene was taking place. Okay so sometimes I didn't understand WHY something was happening, but I think that was more a fault of plot holes than anything else.
