Interstellar (2014)

A ruined ecosystem forces humans to look for another planet. We become semi-physicists via the subtle yet detailed theories described in the film. From worm holes to black holes, time space singularity and gravitational time dilation, we get the whole deal and have enough time to process it at 169 minutes.

Director Christopher Nolan does what he does best, combining music, aesthetics and performances to provide a kick ass (pun intended) film. While we can guess what may happen, we cannot fathom how. The way that is explained is the beauty of his direction. It is not an easy or entertaining subject, but he achieves both.

Actors Mathew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain deserve special mention for their efforts, while a few other greats support them. Music by Hans Zimmer is heart moving and thrilling, while the special effects create varying landscapes and almost mythical geographies.

The result is a film which has to be enjoyed on the largest screen possible. A must see for Sci-fi lovers and those who enjoy the genre of space.
