There are very few films I have seen that have left me speechless for days after watching them. Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar was most definitely one of these films. This film took the idea of space travel to a place that many of us haven’t seen since 2001: A Space Odyssey. The amount of emotion and thought that went into this story left me feeling both happy and incredibly depressed after the fact. Just the simple notion of time within the story and its consequences is a gut-wrenching reminder of how fragile life is and what it means to truly live. Mixing Nolan’s classic cinematography and the astounding realness of today’s digital effects and IMAX cameras, this film captures the true essence of being in space and the wonders and horrors that follow it.
