“Interstellar” (2014)

This may have been a highly ambitious project for director Christopher Nolan, but this is a case where high ambitions don’t necessarily make for a better product. The concept is fantastic, the acting is good, and the visuals and sound work are simply remarkable. The main issue is the script. Nolan has a tendency have long winded expository dialogue in his films, but here it’s at its worst. Because Nolan is dealing with extremely complex concepts, he feels the need to have the characters talk ad nauseam about them. The result of the film being too technical is that the film doesn’t have quite the emotional impact it desires. Despite this, the film is still entertaining and visually stunning enough to warrant a recommendation.
