Arthur needs to be in control. As a point man he has to keep his finger on the trigger at all times.
It’s not that Arthur doesn’t know how to have a good time, he does, he just can’t afford to lose control. Everything has to be on his terms, everything has to be a part of his plan. It’s how he’s survived for as long as he has.
It’s the same when he’s with Eames. Arthur makes the reservations, Arthur picks up the phone first and Arthur holds Eames down.
So when Eames left Arthur a message asking him to meet at a hotel in London, Arthur was uneasy. This was a game and Arthur didn’t know the rules and, even if he did, Eames had a nasty habit of cheating. But that night Arthur thought of Eames’ lips and his anxieties were forgotten.
Forgotten until a week later when, on Eames’ instructions, he opened the door to room 510 and saw a note saying, come find me..
Eames’ territory wasn’t a place you walked into unarmed but now Arthur had no choice.
That weekend, Eames took back control. Somehow he was always one step ahead of Arthur, but then again, wasn’t that the very definition of a good thief? When Arthur retreated to his room, Eames was waiting to kick his feet from under him, to rip his best waistcoat, to leave bite marks on his neck. When Arthur undressed, Eames was watching, eyes dark, dark.
As Arthur let Eames devour him, as he let his finger slip off the trigger and dug his nails into the carpet he thought that there was probably a lesson to be learned here, one about trust and maybe about love, but as Eames hauled him up by his braces and grabbed a fistful of his hair, the thought was forgotten.

Eames The Forger;
"There’s plenty of good thieves.
We don’t just need a thief.
We need a forger.”
Joseph Gordon-Levitt - Inception Interview [x]
I like films where the music and the sound design, at times, are almost indistinguishable. One of the interesting things that happened early on is the Edith Piaf song, that’s in the film, was always indicated in the script long before Marion came on the film. It had always been that choice of song.[…]What I decided to do was to give it to Hans and let him run with it and see if, in some way, it might inform elements of the score because we always knew, we talked in early conversations about towards the action climax of the film, there was going to be a need for the score to interweave seamlessly with this source queue, which is an extremely difficult technical thing to do. - Christopher Nolan

Inception Trivia: In an interview with ‘Entertainment Weekly’, Christopher Nolan explained that he based roles of the Inception team similar to roles that are used in filmmaking - Cobb is the director, Arthur is the producer, Ariadne is the production designer, Eames is the actor, Saito is the studio, and Fischer is the audience.
HOLY FUCK IT’S ‘INCEPTION' THE BOARD GAME.
My tabletop heart went pitter-patter.
Something I find amazing about Inception is that, three years on, so many people still love it enough to fund things like this. The kickstarter has reached its goal of $30,000 (actually gone beyond it), so this game is going to become a reality.
