Inception’s musical secret

Inception is one of the two best science fiction movies I’ve ever seen (along with Gilliam’s Brazil) — in fact, it’s one of two sf movies that I’d rank with the very best sci-fi novels.

So here’s a YouTube clip showing some of the nice attention to detail in the film: the two major musical stings in the movie (a threatening, bassy throb and a grainy Victrola of Edith Piaf singing “Je Ne Regrette Rien”) are, in fact, the same song, played at very different speeds.

    Oh my gosh. We don’t need stills from the movie to prove that the children are older and DRESSED DIFFERENTLY. ALL WE HAD TO DO WAS WATCH THE MOVIE.
