Review: Interstellar, 2014, dir. Christopher Nolan

“Whether he’s making superhero movies or blockbuster puzzle boxes, Christopher Nolan doesn’t bandy with emotion. He’s an intellectual clinician concerned more with the whiz-bang side of filmmaking than in messy, icky sentimentality. We buy tickets to his movies in the pursuit of wonder because that’s his trade, much like we visit a mechanic to replace a transmission or go to a dentist for a root canal. But we generally don’t expect our mechanics and dentists to wax poetic about the human condition, and we definitely don’t expect Nolan to get all maudlin and mushy on us. The guy makes movies that are about as warm as an Eskimo’s ass. The very notion of him examining matters of the heart is almost comical.” – Via Paste Magazine
