As much as we loved "Inception," no one is more surprised than we are that the film held on to lead the box office for a third straight week. But even stranger is the idea that the film's costume designer may have given up the biggest clue to the film's controversial ending.
Ed. note: It goes without saying -- but we'll say it anyway -- what's to follow includes some mild spoilers. If you haven't already seen the film and are planning to, we strongly advise you to read no further.
Jeffrey Kurland, the costume designer for "Inception," recently did an interview with Clothes on Film ("man, there's a website for everything isn't there?" notes The Playlist who uncovered the piece) in which he discussed the meaning of the clothes in the film, specifically the ones wore by Cobb's children:
Giving further credence to the idea that time is moving forward for the kids is that "two different sets of children are listed in the credits (the first pair at ages 3 & 20 months, the second 5 & 3)," as a commenter on Cinematical's piece "Dissecting 'Inception': Six Interpretations and Five Plot Holes" noted.
Obviously neither of these revelations will solve the questions surrounding "Inception," but it's certainly interesting grist for the mill.
