The last thing you expect when you go to see a summer blockbuster these days is to be asked to actually think. But that's just what director Christopher Nolan is demanding of audiences with his latest mind-bending tour-de-force, 'Inception,' which blew away the competition on its way to a $60 million haul over the past weekend.

If you left the theater scratching your head over what you just saw, don't worry, you're not alone: The meaning of 'Inception' is already a topic of fierce debate around office watercoolers, in barbershops and across the Internet. Even New York (the magazine, not the city) is trying to figure out what 'Inception's' convoluted dream-within-a-dream-ad-infinitum storyline is trying to say.
