    Description: In this research essay, the author argues a psychoanalytic interpretation of Christopher Nolan's film Inception: that it is impossible to know the real world. Furthermore, that uncanny experiences serve as reminder of the real world, but that we need to forget the real world and accept our perceived reality in order to continue functioning. The train, the open window, Mal and even the children are presented as elements of the uncanny.
