Humour: Inception Movie in BPMN?

Article here at BoingBoing about the hand drawn diagram used by Christopher Nolan to develop the movie Inception. For those not in the know, Inception has a complex plot involving parallel timelines within dreams.

Looking at the timelines in the sketch, they have a certain swimlane appearance to them. And, note the circles with crosses; maybe they are a form of choice, with synchronisation points occurring later in the narrative. Looks a little like BPMN to me, if you squint.

Maybe Nolan worked at SAP as a BA before his present film making gig. :-)
