InterstellarDVD of the Week Thursday, April 2nd, 2015
dvd of the week
More divisive than any of Christopher Nolan’s films, Interstellar is a long, slow, brainy and, to me, enthralling and thrilling science fiction epic. In the near future, Earth is becoming inhospitable to life and a now-secret NASA is sending ships to parts of the galaxy to find a new home for the planet’s survivors. Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway are two of the astronauts, and they get much more than they bargain for in the far reaches of space. Nolan’s direction is grim but impeccable, the actors are at the top of their game and the film goes to weird, ponderous and odd places. Those hoping for Batman crossed with Star Wars were very upset that they got the grandson of 2001: A Space Odyssey. But I was elated.
