Its straight-forward but presented in a crooked way.

The woman in the cave is a figment of DiCaprio's imagination. He was perpertuating his desperate delusion to escape the awful reality of what happened to his family. He was talking to himself in the cave. The Doctor explained everything in the lighthouse, and you were showed the rest of what happened, what led to DiCaprio's madness. What's confusing about the movie? It's perfectly straightforward and isn't half as complicated as, say, Fight Club.

Okay , So everything that the mystery woman(rachael?) he met in the cave told him is Untrue ? How about the lunatic he went to talk to in Ward C ? Was he truly a marshall ? How about that woman that told him to run while asking question ?? Damn !! the movie is convincing , I am loving Dicaprio every minute , more and more . He is the best actor alive , Please aswer me please .

Lol. There are people who haven't seen it. SPOILER ALERT.

Everything the doctor says is true. DiCaprio murdered his lunatic wife, who deserved to be murdered at least a dozen times more. He opts for a lobotomy rather than continue to be what he thinks he is, a monster. They'd warned him if he regresses again, it would mean the elaborate treatment had failed and they'd have no choice but to lobotomise him. He pretends he has regressed at the end, to end the nghtmare once and for all. You know he's pretending because when the other doctor calls him by his fake 'deluded' name as he's being led away to the lighthouse, DiCaprio doesn't respond. It's not his name. He did not regress. The treatment worked, but he doesn't want to live with himself.
