Inception is a total mind trip. Now do you think he is really back to "reality" or is it another elaborate dream he is still entangled in (Limbo)?
And yes, it seems Mr. DiCaprio has had some solid roles over the last few years. He had some hits and misses early on (Basketball Diaries was a preview of his real abilities), but after & including "Catch Me If You Can" he has had good role and movies ever since.
I think the best line in the movie though is Tom Hardy's "You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling." Just classic.
Coming full circle in the story/plot is a classic mechanism of Science Fiction. In college I took a literature class (an elective I needed to fill) on Science Fiction (origins, different eras and genres, etc.) and as part of it we went over the constructs/mechanisms of the storyline.
Frankenstein is a good example of a story coming full circle (in the end both the monster and Dr. Frankenstein die). The Terminator is a great example; the picture of Sarah that Kyle Reese has was taken when she was going to Mexico (the gas station scene at the end). She records a tape for John that tells him he has to send back Kyle Reese (his father) in order to born. Talk about a total mind trip.
In other stories there are 3 basic parts; 1-Never should have been there in the first place, 2-Should have left when you had the chance, 3-Kill it while you still can. Think of 'Aliens' for this one.

Wait, he dies!?! Geeze, thanks for ruining that one for me... It was next on my Netflix list....
Next thing you are going to tell me is that unsinkable boat the Titanic is going sink... Now that would suck!
