Would you believe me if I said that the delay between part one of this article and part two was a way of demonstrating a story point about limbo in the context of how it's used in Christopher Nolan's "Inception"?
Would you pretend you believe me for the sake of our friendship? How about if I promise to make this article better than the first one?
I will apologize for taking so long with this. My vacation (the single longest stretch of time I've taken away from work in the past four years, according to my wife) was certainly responsible for some of the delay, but it was more than that. It seems like it's been forever since the first review I wrote for the film. Which I liked.
But, honestly, I don't think I did a very good job with the first half of this revisit article. I was working too hard to impress, and I think I sort of cocked it up. Summary is fine, and I really was trying to lay all the pieces on the chess board so we could talk about the moves Nolan makes in the film, but it's not analysis, and what a re-review should be on the rare opportunity that I write one is a chance to dig deeper into a film once spoilers don't matter anymore. So instead of calling this part two of the earlier article, let's take a cue from Hollywood and call this a reboot instead.
