Lyle Thompson, Rob Pannell Highlight PLL Team of Week 1
The opening weekend of the PLL’s third season featured the debut of who many consider the world’s best player in Lyle Thompson, who with the Cannons’ two first games in their new league and first win solidified the merger between the two outdoor leagues. There were also several eye-popping highlights and the first team to win two games in the Redwoods.
More from Week 1:
The Whipsnakes remained dominant in their Championship Series title game rematch against Chaos, the Archers provided another example of why their offense is the best in the league when they outclassed the rebuilding Atlas, and the biggest stars brought their A-games for a weekend that provided plenty of promise for what lies ahead.
Though certain players on this list have an advantage of playing two games over the weekend (selections from the Cannons and Redwoods), it’ll all balance out with the way the schedule works out these next few months.
Here is Inside Lacrosse’s Team of the Week for the opening weekend round of games from Gillette Stadium.
Adam Ghitleman, G, Archers (17 saves, 81% save percentage, 4GAA): Ghitleman didn’t let anything easy go for the Atlas offense, and gave coach Chris Bates no choice but to play him in both halves as opposed the usual two-goalie system he’s utilized the past two seasons with fellow all-star netminder Drew Adams.
Holden Garlent, D, Cannons (2 CT, 5 GB, 1G in 2 games): Garlent scored a beauty of a goal in the Cannons opener when he filled the open lane in the middle of the field and flipped a shot to the top corner. But it was his active defense, both on and off ball, that should be recognized above all else when discussing what makes Garlent so special. One of the better communicators around, Garlent’s play will be paramount in helping a resurgent Brodie Merrill and rookie Jack Kielty help the Cannons to more wins going forward.
Matt Dunn, D, Whipsnakes (1 GB, 1A): Dunn was the clear best cover defenseman in the league last summer, and again proved that he’s going for the back-to-back Dave Pietramala Award with the job he did on Chaos attackman Josh Byrne on Saturday. Bryne did sneak a no-angle goal past Kyle Bernlohr off a down screen rushing toward the net, but Dunn otherwise dominated the matchup. It’s going to take something special to beat Dunn off the dodge, and Byrne is certainly one of the few capable of doing so (as he showed in the 2020 title game with his between-the-legs goal).
Brodie Merrill, D, Cannons (4 CT, 12 GB in 2 games): Merrill has an annual award for a position he doesn’t play any longer named after himself, but in the first two Cannons games of the season Merrill has looked like he’s five years younger. From the few big hits he delivered to picking up a casual half dozen groundballs in each outing, Merrill was excellent. Whenever a dodger had his back turned to Merrill and turned back, his instant double wreaked havoc. It was vintage Brodie.
Scott Ratliff, LSM, Archers (4 points, 1 2-pointer, 2A, 2 CT, 2 GB): Ratliff played an incredibly complete game, and his 2-pointer was influential in helping the Archers build an insurmountable first-half lead. His middle-of-the-field play gave Atlas no chance of even sniffing a comeback. It’s hard to beat Michael Ehrhardt, who scored a 2-bomb of his own, after another stellar performance he put in, but Ratliff gets the nod in Week 1.
Zach Goodrich, SSDM, Cannons (4 CT, 4 GB, 1A in 2 games): Goodrich appears to have cemented himself as the early favorite for the George Bioardi SSDM of the Year after the way he defended during opening weekend. The Towson alum didn’t give dodgers anything, no matter if it was Sergio Perkovic or Michael Sowers.
Steven DeNapoli, SSDM, Waterdogs (3 CT, 2G, 1 GB): DeNapoli has been hampered with injuries the last few seasons, but was his spry and energetic self in the Waterdogs’ season-opening loss. It’s never a good sign for the offense when a SSDM is atop the box score, but DeNapoli’s two scores showed the fight and athleticism he’s made a career out of.
TD Ierlan, FO, Redwoods (36-of-55, 65%, 24 GBs in 2 games): The No. 4 pick in the Collegiate Draft dominated in his debut, winning 21-of-27 against Stephen Kelly and Co. in the Redwoods’ one-goal win against the Cannons. Performances like that are the reason why coach Nat St. Laurent was so anxious whether or not Ierlan would fall into his lap at No. 4 in the draft, and was more than willing to trade up for his services to take that leap to make his team even more complete. The arrival of DI’s all-time face-off leader has given the ‘Woods a couple goal swing with his stellar showings, and St. Laurent’s squad is undefeated because of him.
Christian Mazzone, M, Archers (2G, 2A, 4 points): The former Rutgers standout can play on both ends of the field without seemingly ever making a negative impact. He can switch on to powerful dodgers without getting dusted, and can recover in time to help the defense rotate appropriately. On the other end, it’s usually not Mazzone who’s the one getting the attention on such a loaded offense, but his four points led the onslaught against Atlas.
Jules Heningburg, M, Redwoods (5G, 2A, 7 points in 2 games): The PLL’s Joe Keegan is adamant Heningburg must not be given the shortstick matchup, and for good reason. He’ll torch them with an arsenal of moves coming around X and two-man ability to create a natural chemistry with his teammates. On a midfield that also boasts Sergio Perkovic and Myles Jones, it’s pick your poison for opposing defensive coordinators.
Sergio Perkovic, M, Redwoods (4G, 1 2-pointer, 6 points in 2 games): While Perkovic shot 33% against the Cannons, his 60% mark against Chrome deserves recognition. His 2-pointer put the game out of reach early on as St. Laurent’s group kept Chrome at a comfortable cushion throughout, but Perkovic’s defense on the other end was also impressive. They aren’t trying to use him in a two-way role like they did last season, but when he gets “stuck” down there, more often than not he’s pushing dodgers off their line and not giving up anything easy.
Lyle Thompson, A, Cannons (6G, 1A, 7 points in 2 games): Thompson’s arrival to the PLL was marked in spectacular fashion with his first touch turning into a signature backhanded goal with the shot clock dying down. He makes goalies second guess themselves with his unearthly shooting accuracy, and Thompson’s ability to create offense when given the smallest slither of space will never fail to impress. He’s always going to get his, no matter what pro lacrosse league.
Rob Pannell, A, Redwoods (5G, 4A, 9 points in 2 games): Pannell looked much more comfortable with the Redwoods surrounding cast than he ever did as a member of Atlas, and it showed in both contests he played over the weekend. Pannell can score with the slightest of steps topside when he does that little quick wraparound the pole, or he can go back to his classic question mark — both of which we saw on full display. This Redwoods offense is going to be tough to stop.
Zed Williams, A, Whipsnakes (4 goals on 13 shots, 4 TOs): Zedzilla looks even fitter and even more unstoppable following his 2020 Championship Series campaign. He told Bob Chavez he gained 20 pounds of muscle in the offseason, and when he shouldered his way to out-muscle Jack Rowlett en route to jump shooting over him and into the top right corner of Blaze Riorden’s net, well there’s not too much you can do about that. He, along with the rest of the Whips’ offense, however, did get a bit too sloppy in the second half and particularly in that fourth quarter. Still, Williams proved with his physique and skillset there won’t be much of a chance in guarding him this summer if you’re going to leave him on an island.
NCAA Lacrosse: Breaking Down the Tewaarton Trophy Hopefulls | Bleacher Report
Cornell’s Rob Pannell is a top-candidate for the Tewaarton TrophyJim Rogash/Getty Images
The Tewaarton Trophy, given to the national player of the year in college lacrosse, will once again be a highly contested prize in 2013. As we head down the home stretch of the regular season, the Tewaarton picture becomes clearer, as the front-runners separate themselves from the early-season contenders.
Last year’s winner, Colgate’s Peter Baum, is having a fantastic year, but it seems like a repeat is unlikely for the talented attackman.
Let’s take a look at my top four contenders:
Rob Pannell: Attackman, Cornell
Pannell is back at Cornell after dropping out of school a year ago to keep a year of eligibility in the Ivy League. For Cornell this was a favorable move, bringing back perhaps the most talented player in the country for another go-around.
The under-recruited Pannell has 24 goals and 30 assists thus far in 2013. He has picked up right where he left off, leading Cornell to a 9-1 record and a No. 2 national ranking this week. Pannell would most likely have won the award a year ago if not for injury, so a strong finish to the season could secure the award for the Long Island native this year.
Tom Schreiber: Midfielder, Princeton
Tom Schreiber is a matchup nightmare for the opposition. This year, he has the luxury of being surrounded by more talent, allowing him to become an assist-first middie. He has shown great balance in his 17 goals and 16 assists this year, showing the ability to pass and shoot effectively off of the dodge from up top.
A year ago, Schreiber was the focal point of the offense, and was relied upon to produce on every possession. This year, with far greater production from the attack line at Princeton, Schreiber has dealt with quick double teams by dumping it off to his wide-open teammates.
Schreiber could steal the award from Pannell if he outshines him in the Big City Classic later this month. A tournament run by the Tigers wouldn’t hurt his cause, either.
Lyle Thompson: Midfielder, Albany
Lyle Thompson is a scoring machine. His statistics are absurd thus far in 2013, and it seems he cannot be stopped. His 64 points on 25 goals and 39 assists more than double that of Albany’s second leading scorer, his twin brother Miles.
Thompson, like Baum a year ago, could win the award by default. He could put up so many points that there is no decision but to give him the trophy. If Albany has some more big wins down the stretch behind the middies dominance, Thompson could be the favorite.
Steve Mock: Attackman, Cornell
Mock is having a stellar year for Cornell, but it could be said that his success has a lot to do with the attention demanded by teammate and linemate Rob Pannell. Regardless, Mock’s 31 goals and four assists certainly enter him in the conversation for player of the year. He deserves a lot of credit for his clutch goals that have cemented big wins for the Big Red.
Unfortunately, if Pannell does not win it, it most certainly will not go to Mock. Barring unreal statistics in the tournament, he is unlikely to win the award.

Notre Dame Advances To NCAA Title Game With 12-7 Win Over Cornell – Notre Dame Fighting Irish – Official Athletics Website
May 29, 2010
Box Score | Quotes | AP Gallery
BALTIMORE, Md. – The Notre Dame men’s lacrosse team will be playing in the title game of the NCAA Championship for the first time in program history following a 12-7 semifinal win over No. 7 Cornell on Saturday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium. The Irish will face No. 5 seed Duke in the final at 3:30 p.m. (ET) on Monday back at M&T Bank Stadium.
Senior attackman Neal Hicks (Atlanta, Ga./Lovett School) matched a career-high total with four goals in spearheading the Notre Dame (10-6) offense. Junior midfielder Zach Brenneman (East Hampton, N.Y./East Hampton) tallied three goals for the Fighting Irish. Senior goalie Scott Rodgers (Wantagh, N.Y./MacArthur) made a season-high 16 saves, including 10 in the first half.
“I thought our defense played very well again,” said Notre Dame head coach Kevin Corrigan. “I thought Scott (Rodgers) was terrific in the cage. Offensively, we were very opportunistic. I don’t know if we played very well offensively, but we made plays very well offensively. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to play on Monday.”
Cornell struck first less than two minutes into the contest on a goal from Roy Lang. The Fighting Irish responded with four consecutive tallies. Notre Dame evened things up (1-1) with 2:54 left in the first quarter on a goal from sophomore attackman Sean Rogers (New Hyde Park, N. Y./Holy Trinity).
The Fighting Irish grabbed the lead for good (2-1) with just over one minute left in the opening quarter as Hicks found the back of the net. Senior midfielder Adam Felicetti (Doylestown, Pa./Central Bucks East) scored with six seconds left in the first quarter to give Notre Dame a 3-1 edge after the first period of play. It was the first goal of the season for Felicetti.
Notre Dame went up by three (4-1) 38 seconds into the second quarter on a Brenneman tally. Cornell put a halt to Notre Dame’s run as Steve Mock scored with 12:49 left in the second quarter. The goal snapped a scoreless streak of 15:44 for the Big Red.
A man-up goal from Brenneman gave Notre Dame a 5-2 lead with 10:40 left in the second quarter. The Big Red sliced the Irish lead to two (5-3) with 3:33 remaining in the first half on Mock’s second goal of the day. Hicks deposited his second goal of the game with 16 seconds left in the first half to give Notre Dame a 6-3 lead at the intermission.
Brenneman’s third goal of the day put Notre Dame up by four (7-3) with less than three minutes elapsed in the second half. Mock notched his third goal of the game just over a minute later to make it a 7-4 affair. Cornell cut the deficit to two (7-5) midway through the third period on a Ross Gillum goal.
A man-up tally from Hicks, his third goal of the contest, with 5:57 left in the third quarter put Notre Dame up 8-5. Notre Dame led by that score heading into the final period.
The Fighting Irish grabbed a four-goal advantage (9-5) with 10:55 left in regulation on a goal from freshman midfielder Steve Murphy (Shirley, N.Y./William Floyd). A goal from Cornell’s Ryan Hurley with 6:08 showing on the clock cut the Irish lead to three (9-6). The fourth goal from Hicks gave Notre Dame a 10-6 lead with 4:20 left in the contest.
Junior long-stick midfielder Andrew Irving (McLean, Va./The Hotchkiss School) put Notre Dame up 11-6 with two minutes left in the game. A goal from senior midfielder Grant Krebs (Annapolis, Md. /St. Mary’s) gave the Irish a six-goal advantage (12-6), their largest of the game, with 1:32 showing on the clock. Hurley scored the final goal of the game, a man-up tally with 16 seconds left.
“I thought it was going to be a long day when they scored first,” stated Rodgers. “But it’s definitely good to make your first save when you get out there as a goalie because you want to get into a rhythm and you want to feel out the shooters. So I definitely think (making the first save) helped.”
Cornell held a 40-32 edge in shots. Big Red goalie AJ Fiore made 10 saves. Cornell won 12 of 23 faceoffs.
Monday’s title game is slated for a 3:30 p.m. (ET) start. It will be aired live on ESPN HD and ESPN3.com.

Archers acquire Fields from Chaos for MacKay — Lacrosse Flash
Another day, another Canadian added to the fold for Andy Towers. I should just lock Chaos in for the top spot in the Maple Meter come the start of the season, as this probably isn’t the last Canuck that’s brought in — Chaos already signed Vancouver, BC native Chase Fraser from the Player Pool to open their off-season.
“He brings a ton of versatility as a player on the field,” Towers said of MacKay. “He can play everything, from offensive midfield to extra man to short-stick d-middie to long stick. To have that kind of versatility in a kid that’s coachable and mentally tough and physically durable is invaluable to any team.”
During his two years in the PLL to date, MacKay has been quietly efficient as a complimentary piece in the Archers’ midfield, posting eight points in 10 career games. During the Championship Series, his role increased and he finished the tournament with two goals, one 2-pointer, and an assist.
When it comes to this deal, the fit just makes so much sense for Chaos. MacKay rooms with Josh Byrne and Dhane Smith in Buffalo and is a Canadian that will thrive in Towers’ offensive system.
I’m interested to see how Towers will use him come the 2021 season. I’m not sure that we’ll see him with a six-foot pole with Chaos. They have Tyson Bell, who can play both short-stick defensive mid or long pole. But having him as an option is never a bad thing. I do foresee MacKay being used more on the defensive side of the ball though. He plays a transition role in box, coming predominantly out of the back gate on defence. So he’s no slouch when it comes to taking care of his own end.
At the same time, this is also the man who’s one of the all-time greats in the history of the University of Vermont program. He’s the Catamounts all-time leader in goals with 150 and he also sits third in career points with 230. He has the ability to distribute and score while also providing teams with that two-way dependability.
With the addition of MacKay, this midfield unit is also going to be extremely deep. They’ve already got Jake Froccaro and Sergio Salcido, Dhane Smith is coming off his best PLL campaign to date and Deemer Class will be returning after missing the 2020 season due to injury. There’s also Pat Resch, Eric Scott, and Mark Glicini, but we’ll have to wait and see how expansion might affect the unit. But with those weapons running around with MacKay, he’ll more than likely have his best season point-wise to date.
Chaos does lose a fantastic offensive talent in Fields in this trade, but don’t sleep on MacKay, he’ll immediately join that locker room with a number of familiar faces, which should help him integrate quicker than most. I’m really excited to see what MacKay can do in this new environment.
Joe Amplo claims gold with Team USA
NETANYA, Israel – Marquette University head coach Joe Amplo helped the United States Men’s Lacrosse National Team to a gold medal in the 2018 FIL World Championships with a 9-8 victory over Canada in the title matchup with Canada on Saturday, July 21 at Netanya Stadium.
Amplo served as an assistant coach on head coach John Danowski’s staff as the assistant primarily tasked with the defensive unit, which put up an impressive display over the course of the tournament. Marquette volunteer assistant coach Ryan Brown scored 25 during the championships, including three in the title game against Canada. Brown’s tournament total was the second-highest total for a U.S. player in event history, just one away from the 26 Mark Millon scored in 1994.
The championship is the 10th overall for the U.S. as the two countries added another epic chapter to their storied rivalry. Canada defeated the U.S. to win the 2014 world championship in Denver and the two countries have alternated the championship since 2002 with the U.S. winning in 2002, 2010 and 2018 and Canada winning in 2006 and 2014.

Virginia Lacrosse 2016: Attack Preview
In just 12 short days, the No. 11 Virginia Men’s Lacrosse will take the field against No.7 Loyola to open their season. In the next two weeks, we here at Streaking the Lawn will prepare you for the upcoming season by previewing each unit (attack, midfield, defense, and specialists), recapping last season, looking ahead to this season and the ACC, checking out our new first year class, podcasting (with a special guest!), and making our predictions for the season.
Today, we’re kicking it off with the preview of Virginia’s attack. Each of our previews will feature “The Big Three” that we predict to start for the Hoos, a player to watch for, and some other options available to Coach Starsia.
The Big Three:
James Pannell – The sharpshooting fourth year returns this season from a lower extremity injury that sidelined him for the last nine games last year. Pannell participated in fall ball for the Hoos, and should be back to 100% for the season. Over his 2.5 (ish) seasons, Pannell has 57 goals and 16 assists. He had a six-goal outing against Cornell last year, showing his potential. If he can get back to that level, Pannell is a threat to score against anyone. He moves well off ball and has a powerful outside shot.
Here’s highlights from his six goal game last season (Pannell in #32):
Ryan Lukacovic – Steele Stanwick, the redux (or on his way). Lukacovic shows awareness around the crease and has excellent vision. His second year (last season), he was second on the team in points with 22 goals and team-leading 27 assists. Lukacovic did have 23 turnovers last season, a number that should come down with more experience this year. He’s particularly adept behind the crease, especially when he gets his defender hung up. Over the course of the season, Luka was one of the most steady players last year, notching a point in every game as the Hoos struggled with injuries on both ends of the field. His crease roll has improved and can make moves to the goal in one on one situations. His consistent play will be crucial for Virginia to see success this season.
Mike D’Amario – While D’Amario was used frequently in extra man situations last season, he could land the third starting spot this year. He only had three goals (on nine shots) last year, but has developed his strong lefty shot and can be a big asset.
Watch for This Guy:
Joe French – French is other option for the third starting position. He’s Canadian, and comes with the box league moves they’re known for. He definitely has the most flare on this attack, and can fit both passes and shots into spaces they have no business being. French saw action in 11 of Virginia’s 15 games last season, scoring four goals and grabbing seven ground balls. He’s very vocal and provides a great shot of energy to the attack.
Tyler Breen, Mikey Herring, Townsend Brown – The reserves for attack (or those listed as attack on the Virginia roster) are young with a first year (Herring), a red shirt first year (Brown), and a second year (Breen). Breen saw action in just two games last season, notching an assist in Virginia’s rout of VMI. Brown, besides having an awesome name, was No.34 on Inside Lacrosse’s attack rankings coming out of high school. He’s the tallest player on the attack (6’2″), and could see some time at midfield as well. Herring comes to Charlottesville from Dedham, Massachusetts.
90,000 “Start”. Psychological analysis of the film | Hidden meaning
Link to the second part of the analysis.
Christopher Nolan blurs the line between cinema and dreams in his film Inception (there is a video on the site where this is detailed).
Nolan himself once compared Dominic Cobb’s deployment team to the film crew. This is a completely unambiguous hint that the film, as a collective dream, can be used to introduce certain ideas into the consciousness of the viewer.And, for sure, Inception is no exception. Let’s find out what idea the director put in us.
The film’s narrative is built around the idea of lucid dreaming. Lucid dreams are indeed possible, their peculiarity is that the dreamer understands that he is in a dream and can control the content of the dream at will. In fact, this is an ordinary fantasy, but as realistic as possible due to the fact that the dreamer’s consciousness is disconnected from external reality.
The idea of a dream within a dream with a twenty-fold time dilation at each level and the idea of a shared dream is an artistic fiction.
The film contains two archetypal storylines – “getting rid of the spell”, when the hero must free himself from being possessed by some evil force and “getting treasure”. The first is realized by the hero of Leonardo DiCaprio – Dominic Cobb, the second – by Robert Fisher, the hero of Cillian Murphy.
Let’s take a closer look at the Cobb line.
Throughout the film, Cobb is haunted by the image of his wife. This persecution is a consequence of Cobb’s guilt, as he considers himself guilty of her suicide.
As far as we know, Mollori lived in France before her marriage to Cobb. If you translate her abbreviated name Maul from French, then it means disease or evil , which accurately describes who her image has become for Cobb.
In scenes where Cobb is in a dream or in flashbacks, he is wearing a wedding ring on his left hand. On the one hand, this is a hint from the director so as not to confuse the viewer, on the other hand, the ring has a psychological significance, indicating that he cannot give up his role as a spouse. his life.
The Cobb Story
Once Dominic Cobb proposed to his future wife Mollori and said that he had a dream in which they grew old together. Apparently, these words were to the liking of Mollori.
“… that we will grow old together. – it’s still possible. You know how to find me. “55:08
This is a scene from Cobb’s flashback.
In fact, Cobb set himself a program, a scenario for his life, or, more simply, set himself an obligation according to which he must live with Maul until old age. This scenario – “you must live with Maul until old age” – will later become the basis of Cobb’s internal conflict.
Cobb and his wife were architects and immersed themselves in lucid dreams while doing creative work. But for Maul, the fantasy world became more attractive than the real one, because there they were gods. After decades of pure creativity, Maul decided to settle down better in the limb, transferring objects from her memories there.
“We built for many years, and then took up memories” 01:57:07
In addition to the houses in which they lived with Cobb, Maul also transferred the house from her childhood to the limb, and in order not to worry that everything around her was unreal, she repressed this thought into the unconscious.This is figuratively shown as locking the totem in a safe.
Limb became her reality 01:17:24
For Cobb, life in a dream became unbearable, which is confirmed by the absence of buildings from his personal life in the limb.
To get Maul out of the limb, Cobb planted in her the idea of the unreality of the world in which she lives, and then convinced her to go under the train with him to get out of sleep. (Just in case, I’ll explain that Maul didn’t have to look into the safe to see the spinning top, because both the safe and the top are elements of her psyche).
According to Cobb, they have been in the limb for almost 50 years and have grown old. The director confirms this with a two-second scene:
Returning to the real world, Maul continued to think that this was a dream. the idea, abandoned by Cobb, took hold in her mind. Therefore, Maul was convinced that she and Cobb must kill themselves in order to wake up. Those. repeat what they already did in the limb.
Before committing suicide, she receives testimonies from three psychiatrists about her mental health and informs the police that Cobb threatened her and she fears for her life.After that, he makes a mess in the hotel room and jumps off the cornice.
After Maul’s death, Cobb is forced to hide from the police, as he could not prove his innocence. Cobb goes on the run, and his children stay with his wife’s parents.
Some viewers have a theory that Cobb deliberately implanted the idea in the mind of Mole, so that she would commit suicide in reality. That, they say, he could prove to her the unreality of the limb even without implementation.
In principle, the film allows for such an interpretation, but does not provide any obvious facts to confirm this theory.True, psychological analysis (which I do in the premium analysis) shows that Maul apparently exerted moral pressure on Cobb, and in theory this could be the reason for his desire to get rid of her. But in my opinion, the assumption that Cobb is an attacker is too far-fetched. I think the director wanted to convey a different idea to us.
Cobb Fight with Projection
After the death of his wife, Cobb constantly feels a sense of guilt for having penetrated her subconscious.
Since Cobb loves Maul, he wants to preserve the ability to see her, for which he constructs a memory system in the dream space.These are memories of those moments that he regrets and which he would like to change. As Ariadne noted, this is a kind of prison in which Cobb wants to lock Maul, so that, on the one hand, not to part with her, but on the other, so that she does not interfere with him.
In my dreams we are still together 56:10
But the guilt complex in Cobb’s mind takes on the form of Maul and begins to haunt him in his dreams.
The cornerstone on which Cobb’s guilt complex grew was the very commitment he made: “I must grow old with Maul.”
Real Mole and Projection
It is important to distinguish between the real Maul and its projection in Cobb’s mind in the film. It is no coincidence that the director calls Maul the Shadow: she is not a living person, she is what remains of the deceased Mollori, only her reflection in Cobb’s soul.
The Maul projection is therefore part of Cobb’s personality. And when communicating with the projection, he is, in fact, communicating with himself. This means that if Maul’s projection accuses Cobb of not keeping his promise, then it means that Cobb blames himself for this.
Projection Maul is constantly trying to violate Cobb’s conscious intentions. This is a typical behavior of any mental complex. The more the complex is suppressed, the more energy it will expend to reach the level of consciousness. Therefore, our complexes manifest themselves at the most inopportune moment, spoiling our plans – at the moment when our conscious control is weakened.
But the main intention of Shadow Maul is to drag Cobb into the limb. This reveals her resemblance to the archetype of the Great Mother, who, both with promises of bliss and threats, tries to keep consciousness in her womb.She can also be compared to Thanatos, the personification of death in Greek mythology (who, by the way, was considered the twin brother of Hypnos, the god of sleep). Maul herself is a shadow and tries to drag Cobb into the world of shadows.
But where does Shadow Maul get its energy from? Cobb doesn’t seem to be supplanting guilt; he is more fully aware of it.
I think 1) the conviction that he is obliged to fulfill his obligation, 2) the desire for redemption, and 3) the desire to prolong life. The Maul, at least in the reality of a dream, feed the Maul projection and support Cobb’s internal conflict.
Shadow Maul presses precisely on these weak points of Cobb:
“But you can atone for guilt, keep your promise” 02:05:20
There is a struggle in Cobb’s soul for which reality to accept: more comfortable or more truthful. What to choose: a long life with a beloved in a dream or the loss of a beloved in reality? Become an imaginary god or a real person?
This is a struggle between truth and falsehood. Reality is bitter but true. Sleep is pleasant, but false.
Remember Cobb said
“The subconscious is stimulated by emotions, not by the mind” – 00:50:16
Projection Maul uses this as a clue and appeals to Cobb’s emotions.
“What do you believe in, what do you feel?” 02:02:12
Paradoxically, it is the feeling of guilt that turns out to be the marker and criterion that allows Cobb to distinguish reality from fantasy.
“I feel guilty. I know the truth ”02:02:35
That is: guilt reminds of an act => an act reminds of reality => therefore, to accept guilt means to accept reality and reject an illusion.
So in the end, Cobb is still fully aware of Maul’s image as just a projection.
“I can’t stay because she doesn’t exist” 02:07:50
Another criterion for distinguishing between fantasy and reality is the complexity and contradictions of a living person, which cannot be imagined.
You are just a shadow of my real wife. But you’re not good enough. 02:08:20
Despite the fact that many after watching the film decided that Nolan made us doubt the surrounding reality, I think that he introduced a completely different idea into our subconscious. Namely: that escape from reality can be deadly. I am convinced that Inception is deeply positive. And while we are attacked from all sides with ideas about the illusory nature of the world, Nolan reminds us that our personality is formed here, in the sensible world.
In The Beginning, Nolan shows that only by accepting the unpleasant – primarily in ourselves, we remain in reality.
When Cobb sees his children, it doesn’t matter to him whether the top falls or not.It doesn’t matter because he was ready to stay in his sleep (we saw that he was not).
His indifference to the spinning top suggests that he got rid of his attachment to Maul (after all, it was her totem). And also because if a person has something that gives meaning to his life, and this something lies outside his subjectivity (for Cobb these are children), then the question of the reality of the world becomes a pseudo-problem.
That’s not all! I have prepared another video for you, in which I analyze the character of Mollori and the peculiarities of his relationship with Cobb, give an interpretation of Fisher’s line and talk about several interesting details that I noticed in the process of analyzing the film.
