Interstellar – Nolan’s take on space

Play. Watch. Review.


Being a longtime fan of sci-fi, I have always had big hopes for the upcoming space films. These few years have been a big hit for space operas in video games as well in movies. Gravity brought space themed movies back to the general public as Star Citizen to games. Interstellar was one of the big ones that I had real hopes for. From the director of the new Batman films and Inception, Christopher Nolan was a sure bet for this film. The cast has a real big names too, from the uprising and becoming my new favorite actor Matthew McConaughey to old acquaintances of Nolan’s works. You can see that Nolan likes to reuse good actors on his films seeing Michael Caine and Anna Hathaway on the main cast.

Directed by Christopher Nolan


After watching Interstellar, I realised one thing. The more complex you do things, the more attention and fame you get.

Christopher Nolan’s style of presenting a movie with a non parallel narration stuffed with complex theories is in many ways different from other film makers.

Today after watching Interstellar with my friend Karthikesh braving heavy downpour in Chennai, we were discussing about the scientific theories and how far they were accurate – Actually the scientific concepts in the movie made both of us go mad. Later in the evening, I grabbed his laptop computer to go through various reviews and debates about the science in Interstellar only to come to a conclusion that Nolan may not be the greatest director of his time but he is the best among few filmmakers who is successful in making the audience think about the movie. But even after thinking and exploring, the science…
