My Ratings: 4/5.
Interstellar is the latest by the acclaimed director Christopher Nolan.
And over the years we, the audience have put such immense faith in him that we believe Nolan can never go wrong, he can never make anything less than a masterpiece. Though he tried to prove us wrong a couple of years back by making The Dark Night Rises but we still insist on claiming it as yet another Nolan-classic!
Well, now it’s Interstellar’s turn to take a dip in the Holy waters.
Don’t get me wrong here – honestly I liked Interstellar very much. It’s a great concept (writers Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan) – such level of imagination and so well executed.
A Sci-Fi starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathway and Jessica Chastain, Interstellar is a film about space and black holes, about dimensions and relativity; and then again it’s also about love and betrayal.
A town covered with dirt straight from the pages of John Steinbeck’s famous novel The Grapes Of Wrath, the film starts off growing on the general idea that our beloved planet may not be the permanent residence for us. The earth-resources all used up we need to find a new place, a new planet to survive.
And soon the expedition begins.
The first half of Interstellar is intense and full of adventure and then Matt Damon joins the party and make things even more interesting.
But the final Bollywood-touch of a father-daughter connection that miraculously solves all the mysteries of the universe is well a bit something to chew on.
But after all it’s Nolan and no one dares to complain.
Excellent acting by Mathew McConaughey (Cooper) and especial mention for Mackenzie Foy, a truly talented young actor playing Murph (Cooper’s daughter).
Interstellar is a good film, actually a great film but the tremendous effort to make it the ultimate classic – the best-space film ever existed – even better than Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey or Tarkovsky’s Solaris does make you fully aware of such dimensions like time and gravity and it’s a good thing they exist.
A must see especially for the Sci-Fi lovers. A lot of interesting and weird takes on relativity that will make you think and discuss about the film long after you are out of the cinema hall.
Even I am a Nolan-fan myself but a request to all you fellow film-lovers – please don’t judge a particular film by keeping in mind the past films of the filmmaker. That may bias your judgments a little.
