    If you look at this movie as a whodunnit, yes, its ending proves disappointing.

    However, the themes of obsession and jealousy are at its core. In that light, this ending is brilliant and shows what rivalry can do to people.

    Perhaps the reveal could have been a bit more graceful, making it seem less convoluted, but I think that would take away from the shock its has at the end.

    I really think very few directors besides Nolan could pull this off.

    When I first saw this movie, I couldn't stop thinking about it for almost two days following it. THAT is the mark of a truly great film. For those that like this sort of film, the word mesmerizing seems apt to describe its effect. 9 years ago

    Great movie.

    A common complaint is that the mystery is unsolvable without watching the entire film. You get to the last final couple minutes and are bombarded with all the answers, without being given enough hints to work it out yourself.

    Having watched the movie a second time, I can assure you that the hints are indeed there. There are more than a handful of clues spread across the entire movie. Sure, it might be a little difficult to figure out what is going on by yourself, but I would argue that it is most certainly possible.

    Probably the most underrated Nolan movie. Definitely worth watching.
