This chapter explores further lines of inquiry for Christopher Nolan's Inception (2010). Christopher Nolan has said that he cannot cut a film without considering whose point of view the shot represents. Students might care to discuss the camerawork in Inception, taking into account Nolan's preferences and analyse specific scenes which exemplify them. Another area for future study is the role in the film of the song 'Non, je ne regrette rien', in the original recording by Édith Piaff, as well as Hans Zimmer's musical score. It is also worth considering whether the marketing of the film was effective in awakening interest in. Finally, there are several mythological references in the film, and it is worth examining whether they broaden the films frames of reference in any way.

Keywords:   Christopher Nolan, Inception, camerawork, Hans Zimmer, musical score, film marketing, mythological references
