Movie Review – Interstellar
Varghese was so thrilled after watching Interstellar; he decided to proxy Kubrick’s hand and writes a letter to Christopher Nolan! From ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ to ‘Interstellar’, a letter-cum-review, this is what Varghese thinks of the groundbreaking new sci-fi film on the shelf!
I just saw your latest movie. You have literally made my jaws drop in awe. Delving into various themes like life in the cosmos, father-daughter bonding, environmental aspects, you have left me stunned. The special effects were simply out of this world. It’s never easy to make a challenging film like this. Believe me; I myself had undergone so many hurdles while making 2001 and so I know how you must have felt! Special kudos to the entire cast for giving authentic heart wrenching moments to savor. Matthew, Mackenzie and Jessica are the standout performers. I myself shed buckets of tears while watching the departing moments. I myself miss my daughters so much. Ambiguity is what makes movie going experience worth it. Science is a vast topic – it is never easy to explain it to anyone without taking any creative liberties. While directors around you are satisfied with clichés, you have taken the risks and followed your heart. In particular, I would like to mention Hans Zimmer’s pulse pounding organ score as a career benchmark right up there with Gladiator, The Dark Knight and Inception. Believe me, my heart stopped for a moment when I did see the twist. In my top 3 for this year!
