In fantasising over the possibilities of science, it must be noted that Christopher Nolan is stretching the possibilities of cinema too.
“The truth is, I tried every trick out there not to do this. I don’t do auditions generally and didn’t want to — not even for Tenet. At my age, you begin to ask what you are going to get now, doing a Hollywood film.”
I’m talking of the Cobb-Mal romance that occurs in a dystopian wasteland, a romance that unravels more in our minds than in the film—which is only fitting, considering that much of Inception happens largely in its characters’ heads.
“The media and Hollywood usually portrays technology in negative light. Searching isn’t one such indictment. Yes, technology can alienate, but it can also connect. It can make us hope, it can make us love… and maybe, it can bring a dad and daughter together — like in Searching.”
