The spinning top topples, or maybe it doesn't...

I've seen it once. Now I've gone and seen it twice. This is probably going to last me a little while. But thing is, even though I was looking for it, I'm still not absolutely sure if I saw it. Not that it matters :).
I was watching The Matrix last night. After a few years probably. And wishing that there was some way I could un-watch it first :). Inception is not quite like that. But seeing that I knew the plot inside out, I still couldn't find much by way of a flaw.

Granted, the limbo takes some pretty active imagination to sort out and render as consistent with the rest of it, but there isn't anything in there quite like that mortifying 'kiss of life'! I mean, as much as I love The Matrix, and the sequels (although those two get more points for effort rather than on actual ability, so to speak), I can never quite forgive them that one awful sequence, and the one in Reloaded, of course.

Anyhoo, getting back to what I was looking for. I'll try to keep this sort of spoiler free (and if you haven't seen the movie yet, chances are you wouldn't be particularly bothered I suppose). Was I just imagining it or was Phillipa wearing that white top only in the last scene and not in the memories?

Damn, I've gotto see this again :|.

Currently: still awesome! unbelievably enough
