    And yet it still took Leo getting mauled by a bear to get his Oscar.

    So I just watched this movie and this movie was a total twist . This movie is now one of my favorites and Leo should have won an Oscar for his performance .

    "Once you're declared insane, then anything you do is called part of that insanity. Reasonable protests are denial. Valid fears, paranoia." -Rachel Solando (cave).
    After watching this movie and the doctors declaring Teddy is Andrew and insane. Everyone (audience) instantly declares Teddy as insane and disregards him as a Marshal and everything he does or says even if they rewatch it. Mindfucked.

    Andrew: I can’t stand the sight of water.
    Also Andrew: Lemme splash my face with some water right quick.

    Notice how fire is a motif of deception and water is truth

    I will be honest...I was a die hard believer in the fact that Leo was sane and he was drugged and convinced he was crazy. I based all of this on when he was interviewing the lady patient and after she sent his partner for water she wrote "run!" on a piece of paper. I have since let go of this theory.

    Just a minor but interesting detail, when we see the Nazi lying on the floor bleeding out, in the background is playing a song that was by a Jewish person, which is unlikely to happen irl as we know how the Nazis interacted with Jews, this further proving that Andrew is a unreliable narrator

    I thought people were lighting his cigarette was a hint to him being the patient, not the fire? Who knows

    This may sound pretentious af, but Andrew's descent into the facility where they keep the most dangerous patients was kinda like him metaphorically descending into the suppressed part of his mind.
    Or it's just a cool-ass scene.

    I find it funny that the "Would you rather live as a monster or die a hero?" qoute is being said to the guy who in two years would play The Hulk.
    (And yes, I know the actor's name.)

    Do you think teddy’s vision of Rachel in the cave and the ‘army of ghosts’ relates to his time in the war? That these ghosts can do things “a sane man wouldn’t” as in murder of children etc...

    I like to imagine that the physician doesn't let DiCaprio commit suicide by doctor and has the lobotomy called off like a minute after the credits roll lmao

    No matter how many FUCKING times I watch this movie. I can always watch it from teddy and Andrews perspective and it works so well both ways at the exact same time. I still want it to be my boi teddy.
