Lead actor speaks about collaboration with 'Dark Knight' director
Leonardo DiCaprio has called Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan’s new film Inception “very ambitious” and “like a giant therapy session”.
The film has so far been deliberately shrouded in mystery, but DiCaprio, who plays a master criminal in the highly anticipated surreal thriller, has spoken about his role in the film.
“It’s a very ambitious film. I think Chris Nolan tried to pull off a multi-dimensional narrative set within the subconscious of the human mind, and also provide an extremely entertaining thriller on a grand Hollywood scale,” he said. “You’re dealing with surreal worlds and almost an existential film…. I looked at it like a giant therapy session for my character, this whole journey.”
When asked about preparation for the role, DiCaprio added: “I tried to do the traditional sort of approach to this movie, where I was reading up on dream analysis and the meanings of it, and at the end of the day, this is a very specific dream world that’s in the mind of Chris Nolan.”
Inception is released on July 16.
