This is my review of the film, do not look if you don't want me to spoil the film for you.

This is one of the most awe-inspiring film released in my life time. I am glad Chris Nolan took the risk and the boldness to make this epic film. For the most part IMAX 70mm is worthwhile but honestly at some instances you can say it destroys the perspective for example the Gargauntua scenes. I love the use of Wide Shots instead of POVs / Shaky Cams like modern Action flicks because these Wide Shots give you a visceral view of the character and you can see what is going on in the vicinity. I loved the Eject scene of Coop turning down the Black Hole.

The film is modern, yet rooted in the classic sense of Science Fiction and does complete justice to where it's being inspired from. I could see 2001: A Space Odyseey, BladeRunner, Alien and Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind being in there, even there are moments from Inception.

I am glad, Nolan took this bold path, and more glad he did not break the Speed of Light Barrier, he would have to deal with a lot more than what he dealt with in the currect script.

Having said this, Interstellar fails at some points too, but it does only at the points it was too ambitious about. It fails to stand where Nolan took huge steps forward.

Firstly,they could have expanded the Scale of destruction and chaos happening in the world instead of showing only a small town with Dusty Corn Fields. The Launch Sequence did not have any build up. The Tesseract Scene where the supposedly 5th Dimension beings who communicate through 3 Dimention space was kinda let loose. The Angle of Love Transcends through Space and Time was not overly explained. Love, though may be tangible in the future, but is it really the 5th Dimension?

Coop talks to his daughter through the bookshelf to tell her to ask him to "Stay" then if she did ask him to Stay, the whole story would not have happened right? and Humanity would be doomed, as the Future Humans would not open the Wormhole, having said that, if 'they' were not Saved how could they send someone back in time to open the Wormhole to save their Past selves? That's paradoxical! Glad, Nolan did not go deep into Time Travel.

I absoultely loved the Endurance Docking scene and that's truly a masterpiece in action scenes. I agree the concepts of Relativity, Time Dillation and Space Time itself was not for the general movie-going-audience but that's why you have generations discussing about movies.

Overall, I like the film and this is one of those to be talked about for years to come. It's worth as a Classic Masterpiece can be decided only by multiple viewings and if it stands the test of time just like 2001: A Space Odyssey.
