Perygl Reviews: Interstellar

My thoughts on Christopher Nolan’s #Interstellar

Interstellar Review

Eagerly anticipated, Christopher Nolan’s latest film is a science fiction epic that borrows heavily from other classics in the genre, most noticably 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick, 1968).

There are many stylistic nods to Kubrick's classic 1967 film. There are many stylistic nods to Kubrick’s classic 1967 film.

Before seeing the film, my colleague and I were discussing the potential of Interstellar.  He mused that it would become the “2001” for a new generation. After seeing it this weekend I can assure you it is not. Kubrick’s masterpiece is still the only essential “Space Odyssey” for any generation and in my opinion, it always will be. Every time I watch 2001 I feel like I’ve been somewhere else. Taken on a journey through the universe within, represented in the film by a man flying into a black hole. Powerful, creepy and awe inspiring film-making.

Another reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey. The spacecraft is dwarfed by gas giant Saturn. Another reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey. The spacecraft is dwarfed by gas giant Saturn.
