Honestly, I think my review will not do justice for the latest edition of mindfuck by your one and only Christopher Nolan. This is his only show for the year and I am really glad that is because the amount of thoughts and mindfucking in the show makes me feel like I need to sit back and just take time to fill in the gap. Slowly figuring out what happen, if you are fan of Inception, rest assured this movie will keep you accompanied in that department.

A short summary by IMDB mention that "A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage". 

Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) left behind his 2 kids, Murph (Jessica Chastain) and Tom (Casey Affleck) under the care taking of his father in law, Donald (John Lithgow).Cooper will lead a team of 4 each with their own expertise and together with a military robot named TARS to find another hope for mankind.. 


Matthew McConaughey nailed the acting without much of an effort to be honest. His acting in Dallas Buyers Club  just gotten up another level with Interstellar. Every single character which acted in the movie seems to have no effort bringing the emotional aspect and also ensuring that feelings get carried very well to the audience. Young Murph (Mackenzie Foy) plays a hell of a role in the movie together with the emotional feeling that is happening in the movie. Most of the time the connection is so real that you feel to be part of the expedition and that portrays well throughout the movie. Other than that, you will also have an epic soundtrack by none other than, Hans Zimmer.


I had a very good time watching the show, I suppose there are nothing sort of really bad for me. Besides how true is the theory that was mention on gravity and also what is beyond the blackhole. Another problem for me was that they never mention why was Earth having sandstorm every now and then and crops are dying, starting from wheat. Is it just because of virus or simply just because the condition of Earth has gotten bad? Another issue was a random LOVE dialogue which was mention by one of the crew member while on the voyage. 


This movie is definitely my top movie for this year. Once again, Nolan comes back and did what he does best. It's like Inception in space and slowly and surely you will have your jaw opens when you think hard about what is happening. The whole movie although it is long 169 minutes it is enjoyable and will ensure that you will be awake the whole moment through. 

TL;DR: Watch it and have a great deal of mindfucking. 

p/s: My review might not do justice to it, so please do check it out in cinema near you :)
