I've read The Physicists by Durrenmatt recently. It was rather brief and unfunny, as expected of a German (Swiss) comedy. But since this one was supposed to be rather dark as the author himself admitted, I guess it's not such a big loss. Moreover, as far as I understand it was also intended to be a parody of tragedy rather than plain comedy, which kind of makes sense considering that the problematique (uncontrollable development of technology) in this work is actually pretty serious. However, due to the work's brevity, I don't think it was revealed to its fullest - but even then author managed to make few points clear. Also, I've enjoyed a couple of monologues, especially Moebius declaring his psalm. So, while I definitely wouldn't call this work great, it was a pleasant read. Anyone else had any experience with post-war German-language literature?
This is pretty pleb-tier but I just finished watching Inception for the first time and honestly I think it's one of the most creative and thought provoking films I've seen in years.
Do you think it ended in a dream or not?
I feel like the entire purpose of the ending was to say that it's uncertain. I know from a marketing perspective it's a way to keep people talking/debating about the movie, but to me, the artistic point of it is that there's no real certainty to anything and "reality" is subjective.
Also when you really think about it, you can go super deep and say that this is all a dream, and the movie in and of itself was an inception that our reality isn't real, much like the one the main character's wife got.
