Hollywood heartthrob Leonardo Dicaprio believes his new release, Inception, is more about experiencing than explaining.
The 35-year-old actor, who plays Dom Cobb in the Christopher Nolan-directed sci-fi action epic, finds it difficult to explain what the movie is about and claims it needs to be “experienced”, Contactmusic reported.
“This is a high concept film, that works on a multitude of levels simultaneously. It’s a film that you really need to experience,” DiCaprio said.
“Chris is one of the best filmmakers and the truth is that it’s hard to enter his mind in certain instances when he’s talking about how this film is going to piece together conceptually.
But what he works with you on as an actor, and what’s so vitally important, is the emotional narrative of your character and what your bit means in that plot,” he added.
“You feel on the edge of your seat with the intensity of the plot structure, but there is also this psychological, surreal journey that you go on with these characters,” the actor said.
Dicaprio plays a special agent who percolates dreams to extract secrets. Inception, which due to release on July 16, also stars Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
