* HarsherInHindsight: Robert Fischer's father is dying of a long-term illness [[spoiler: and passes away before the Inception begins]]. Just under seven months after the film was released, the actor (Creator/PetePostlethwaite) lost his second battle with cancer.

Added DiffLines:

** Cobb and Saito. Cobb stays in a rapidly crumbling limbo to find Saito and rescue him from thinking limbo is reality in a direct parallel to what happened between Cobb and Mal. Complete with the similar repeated phrases "grow old together"(Cobb and Mal) and "be young men together" (Cobb and Saito).

* AwardSnub: Was nominated for Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay at the Golden Globes, but no nominations for acting (leading or supporting). It lost each of those to ''Film/TheSocialNetwork'' ([[AndZoidberg even Best Original Score.]]). At the Oscars, Nolan wasn't nominated for Best Director (yet still managed to nab Best Picture and Best Screenplay nods) while Lee Smith wasn't nominated for Best Editing.
** It did win best sound editing, best sound mixing, best cinematography and best visual effects. The only other film to win as much was ''Film/TheKingsSpeech''.

** Thanks to the application of OlderThanTheyThink, ''{{Paprika}}'' = ''Inception: The Anime'', ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' = ''Inception: The Gorefest'', etc.

Added DiffLines:

** The streets of Paris exploding without any explosives, flinging slow-motion debris midair, which then ''explode again midair''.

** Some people have also considered this a SpiritualLicensee to Creator/PhilipKDick's ''Literature/{{Ubik}}'', as they share similar themes about the nature of reality (as well as recursive levels of [[RealityWarper Reality Warping]]) and almost identical {{Gainax Ending}}s. If not for the fact that Creator/MichelGondry has been attached to a film adaptation of ''Ubik'', it would be easy to snark that ''Inception'' is likely the closest we'll ever get to a film of the novel.

*** JerkassWoobie: [[spoiler: Yes, she ruined Cobb's life by framing him for her suicide, but this was only because she had spent so much time in the dream world that she was unable to distinguish what was a dream and what was reality. This would lead to her killing herself, convinced that she could wake up into what she perceived as reality. In the end, all she wanted was to go someplace where she could be happy forever. Of course, it turns out that her delusion and paranoia is a direct result of Cobb implanting the idea of it in her mind.]]

** Saito. Amoral or underhanded as he might be, he is [[spoiler:sent to the Limbo and passes there what from his perspective could be easily thirty or fourty ''years''. Now imagine that much time in a place you can't leave and you know it is not the true reality, away from your life, your friends and loved ones, waiting for a rescue that may never come, and not knowing if your plan to save the world from an energy monopoly had ever success. When Cobb finds him, he has been reduced to a hopeless, decaying old man who barely remembers his own life.
