Check Out Christopher Nolan Doing ‘Research’ for Inception

Christopher Nolan's Inception, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a guy who steals dreams from high-powered business types, is now rolling out the geek-bait viral videos. In the clip below, Nolan (mostly off-camera) interviews academics about their dream research. According to the Playlist, the first two interviewees are the real deal, while the third, vaguely Eva Mendes–resembling one, is an actress. This seems abundantly clear when watching the video, since the actress is the only one talking about a military program called Project Somnacin that looks into the possibility of accessing and interacting with other people's dreams. Wow, just like in the movie!
