Michael Caine "confirms" 'Inception' ending -- but not really 

In an interview on a BBC Radio talk show, actor Michael Caine gave his own spin on one of the most talked about movies of the year. 

Warning - spoilers for Inception after the jump! 

Regarding Inception's (infamously?) open ending, Caine had this to say: 

“[The spinning top] drops at the end, that’s when I come back on. If I’m there it’s real, because I’m never in the dream. I’m the guy who invented the dream.”

An interesting take, and one that I'm sure millions of people share, but it means virtually nothing coming from Caine.  Fact of the matter is, only director/writer Christopher Nolan actually knows Inception's intended ending, and I doubt he'll reveal that information any time soon.   Personally, the ending was one of my favorite parts of Inception, but I understand that others might appreciate a more straightforward conclusion.  

What are your thoughts?  Does the top fall over?  Was the entire film a dream?  Is Cobb inmate #528491 of an asylum?  How do you think the film should have ended?
