    Ah, the power of suggestion. You make a great point, they really do go to a lot of trouble in the movie to “plant the seed,” I mean full winter camo gear and everything. I get sucked in just watching Taco Bell commercials–all they had to do was get Fischer to watch some damn TV and place a clever ad! But then the movie wouldn’t have been nearly as cool 🙂

    While most people were concentrating on the intricacies of the dream states, what they meant and all that, no-one seems to have noticed what appeared to be thinly veiled anti-Iran propaganda. The whole mission was basically a metaphor for America wanting to prevent Iran from striking an oil deal with China. If the tv “news” hadn’t been so hysterical at the time about how evil Iran was, I might not have even noticed it.

    What was one of the biggest themes running throughout the movie, which permeated ALL of the dream states? The mission! It was extremely important for the “conglomerate” deal to be prevented, enough to justify any amount of law-breaking by the good guys.
