London: Hollywood heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio believes his new release `Inception` is more about experiencing than explaining.

The 35-year-old actor, who plays Dom Cobb in the Christopher Nolan-directed sci-fi action epic, finds it difficult to explain the movie and claims that film is needed to be "experienced", Contactmusic reported.

"This is a high concept film, and it`s a film that`s working on a multitude of levels simultaneously. And it`s kind of a hard film to pitch. It`s more of a film that you really
need to experience," DiCaprio said.

"Chris is absolutely one of the best filmmakers out there and the truth is that it`s hard to enter his mind in certain instances when he`s talking about how this film is all going to piece together conceptually. But what he works with you on as an actor, and what`s so vitally important, is the emotional narrative of your character and what your character
means in that plot," he added.

"You feel on the edge of your seat with the intensity of the plot structure, but there is also this psychological, sort of surreal journey that you go on with these characters
that means something," the actor said.

DiCaprio plays a special agent who percolates dreams to extract secrets.

`Inception`, which will be released in July 16 also starring Ellen Page, Cilliam Murphy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard.
