Interstellar (2014)


STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

 

Verdict – 4/5

 

Pros –
1) “Dustopian” Future
2) Matt Damon Plot-Twist
3) Michael Caine Space Voice Over
4) Fifth Dimension Portrayal
5) Nolan’s obsession with “limbo”.Nolan is clearly exploring the “relativity of time” factor as he did it in Inception.
6) Planet Lazarus
7) Cliffhanger ending
8) Ellen Burstyn as Elderly Murph (reminds me of Vanessa Redgrave in Atonement).

 

Cons –
1) Often more like a documentary during the first half.
2) Concepts of wormhole, black-hole, relativity,5th Dimension etc. introduced and twisted as per director’s convenience to cover up plot-holes.
3) There is a certain resemblance to Shyamalan’s Universe.
4) Cooper’s Station looks like the space station from Elysium
5) Morse Code Communication

 

Quote –
“Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
