Just watched it. It was an interesting, complex film. I wouldn't rave about it, but I did enjoy it and even though I guessed he would set the top spinning at the end, it still worked well when it started to wobble and then - cut!

I'm with Shaun on this - it was interesting film -  but not exceptional.  I am gGlad to have seen it - but very much doubt I would watch it again too soon. 

I just took the 'top spinning' ending  as one of those ratherinevitable director's hooks - leaving the gate open for Inception 2

I concede it was  an 'inevitable directors hook'. It was the perfect timing of the cut that I admired  mostly, neither spinning  nor falling.

The only other film I have enjoyed as much in recent years was Red Cliff - before that it was probably Passport to Pimlico...
