Edit: The correct titles for Saito and Fischer (The Tourist and The Mark, respectively) have been updated in the print version :)

UPDATE #4: a DD! Just when I thought this couldn't get any more popular, heh. Many thanks to =MrPersonGuyMan and ^StormPenguin for the honor!

UPDATE #3: I'm absolutely stunned by the fact that Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Arthur from the movie) tweeted about this graphic: twitter.com/hitRECordJoe/statu… . wow.

UPDATE #2: Prints are now available. Enjoy :)

UPDATE: Didn't expect it would be this popular. Thanks for the views, comments, critiques, favs and tweets everyone! I'm going to try and make this into a print, stay tuned :)

As most people agree, Inception was fantastic.

Instead of mapping the entire movie with the countless theories out there, I wanted to visualize the main inception mission, with its different levels and kicks, hence the graphic.

Software: Rhino, Illustrator, Photoshop


A.Aronsson's impossible figures were hugely influential in the 'inception' of this graphic, check out his awesome work here: andreasaronsson.com/tag/imposs…

I loved this movie. This is a really cool infographic. I love that you put so much detail into it. I'd like to try making something similar to this some time.

That's great. I like this movie very much, and still it's a bit difficult to understand. But... One detail... Do you mean that Cobb did actually die in his dream?

Love this film. This interpretation is just as great in an attempt to explain what the hell goes on in the film who don't understand ;)

I tried understanding this. It is amazing.
I like it a lot because it's neat and well organized and simple yet still on Inception's mind blowing level
