It's really interesting hearing a filmmaker speak about other artistic influences, especially something as traditional as fine art painting. I find it fascinating that for being such a Francis Bacon fan, his films aren't more David Lynch-like in terms of visual distortion and nightmare. The way that he's inserted the Bacon influences in his films (claustrophobic and mysterious atmosphere and plot) is quite subtle.

I wonder if he was influenced by Rene Magritte for Inception. After watching Inception, I went on a complete Magritte blitz in my local library.

I mean, I guess most of you thought it was a reference to B89, but I figured there must be a reason he was going directly to the source.
