Christopher Nolan returns with his version of a tribute to 2001 – A Space Odyssey. To me Stanley Kubrick‘s space epic always is the greatest space flick. Everything else pales in comparison and feels like a mere tribute.
Nolan takes the tried and tested Saving the Earth premise and takes us on a journey to what lies beyond us with a bunch of talented stars. Despite the flaws and the scientific jargons what hooked me to the film was the highly emotional father – daughter bond and the survival instinct angle.
Matthew McConaughey continues from where he left off in Dallas Buyers Club and gives a stellar performance. Ann Hathway and Jessica Chastain provide able support. The entire cast manages to take us through an emotional roller coaster.
Christopher Nolan’s strength lies in taking up relatively simple themes and constructing mazes around them. He leaves it to the audience to find their way around the maze and interpret the journey in their own way. He does that once again with Interstellar.
There are some who might hate it, others might find it too complex to grasp but to me it is always an endearing journey of hope and re-affirmation of all that is good about the human race.
Go for it – In theatres only with 3D glasses.
RATING – 4.5/5
