INTERSTELLAR believes in love and family as real forces in the physical world, and I don’t have the heart to tell it otherwise. (It also literalizes string theory as a multicolored pane of time-bending strings behind your bedroom wall. Think about that for a moment!) The ambition of INTERSTELLAR is inseparable from its clean-shaven nuttiness and its discreet romanticism.

Interstellar is Nolan’s best and most brazenly ambitious film to date… The film is a feast of extraordinary ideas, each one depicted by Nolan’s cinematographer, Hoyte van Hoytema, and his visual effects team with heart-swelling grandeur.

[The part where Coop communicates with his daughter from another dimension] loses some viewers, but it leaves me a wreck every time. Interstellar has never really been about science; any science in it has always been at the service of Nolan’s more poetic ambitions. And here, the film abandons any pretense to physics and enters a strange, wonderful netherworld between dreamy metaphor and literal-minded fantasy.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Interstellar

    Christopher Nolan sets out to make a 2001 for the multiplex, which is a noble goal and inherent folly, because in a hard sci-fi epic yearning for gravitas, characters keep having snarky banter with a lovable robot. Nolan is a talent who often lapses into visual/narrative vagueness, but he's one of the few Hollywood mega-directors to reach so far, and in this (muddled) odyssey he creates some of 2014's best moments.

    To have it all. To lose it all. Meeting a soulmate. Losing a soulmate. Fuckin' up your own happy path. The right path. Path to heaven. Path to the heavens. Time is love. Love is time. (This time this black-hole suck it all out of me; nothing left to swallow.)He gets back to the ship and he's lost everything he held dear. He lost HIS DAUGHTER growing up. He wasn't there when his dad died+he lost a Generation on that ▽

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Interstellar

    Suffers from many of the filmmaker's worst traits & yet benefits from his greatest virtues. The film is grounded, ambitious, emotionally affecting & often visually overwhelming; working best as an extended mediation on time that attempts to connect the spirit of Spielberg to the ghost of Tarkvosky. Nolan reaches for something here. He might not grasp it completely, but at least he's reaching. An almost profound work.

  • mpho3's rating of the film Interstellar

    *Spoiler* "If future humans wanted to save us, couldn’t they have simply given the professor the secret equation? Especially if the solution is apparently simple enough to be delivered by Morse Code? Or perhaps [tell] humanity [how] to grow some food? Rather than orchestrating a spectacular protracted & complicated mass starvation family melodrama mind-f—k?" - James Hibbard, EW. Also good lord, the score's overkill.

  • C҉ă҉t҉ă҉l҉i҉n҉'s rating of the film Interstellar

    I just applied for a job at NASA as an astrophysicist and even though I don't have any college degrees, I listed under qualifications "Have watch Interstellar" and not only they hired me instantly but also made me the chairman and CEO of NASA.

  • Dzimas's rating of the film Interstellar

    The first half hour was interesting, envisioning a future dust bowl America, but after that it was just a pastiche of classic sci-fi themes with Mathew McConaughey looking more like a truck driver than an astronaut traversing the fourth dimension of time and space, with Ann Hathaway along for the ride. Christopher Nolan can do better than this.

  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film Interstellar

    Once again Nolan brings light to cinema's horizons. From the trailer, I never thought Interstellar would move me this much. Compelling and with the correct drama tune, it turns and twists the human-race-based-sci-fi-movie thing. Touching. Just touching.

  • dave gunn's rating of the film Interstellar

    Years of writing, planning, financing, and study paid off very well in this uniquely stunning American sci-fi. Glowing with scientific accuracy thanks to a theoretical physicist for a guide and co-producer and rife with emotion and beauty thanks to the two Nolans, this might be the best American sci-fi since 2001, in my opinion.
