Leonardo DiCaprio’s Inception Experience

Leonardo DiCaprio in Inception

believes Inception is a film that needs to be “experienced.”

The 35-year-old actor - who plays Dom Cobb in the -directed sci-fi action epic - admits it is a difficult film to explain, but his trust in Nolan made him overcome any fears.

“This is a high concept film, and it’s a film that’s working on a multitude of levels simultaneously. And it’s kind of a hard film to pitch. It’s more of a film that you really need to experience,” he said. “Chris is absolutely one of the best filmmakers out there and the truth is that it’s hard to enter his mind in certain instances when he’s talking about how this film is all going to piece together conceptually. But what he works with you on as an actor, and what’s so vitally important, is the emotional narrative of your character and what your character means in that plot.”
