REVIEW OF CHRISTOPHER NOLAN'S INTERSTELLAR
|year: 2014 rating: **|
A tale about a rural farmer, longing for a purpose in life and who ends up in the far reaches of space, might seem a tad familiar... And just as we get to know Cooper and his children – living on an Earth devastated by ferocious dust storms – he alone winds up soaring to the mysterious heavens.
For a three-hour film, it’s a surprise that any aspect could be “too rushed.” Yet the amount of time our potential hero goes from the ground to the sky is as quick as a few instructive paragraphs spouted by the chief NASA scientist (Michael Caine).
Christopher Nolan's power can't be denied: His DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY created an immense fan base nearly equaling the nostalgic likes of Spielberg, Lucas, Kubrick or any iconic director you choose… But his ambitiously epic INTERSTELLAR both overreaches and overwhelms… Not just the audience and characters, but the genre itself: With so many complicated instructions we hardly see the damn thing work!
