Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" Is Looking Quite Intriguing
Christopher Nolan's latest endeavor is headed into the realm of scifi, and it's looking like it'll be one hell of a ride. Featuring Matthew McConaughey as a farmer, father and retired pilot who is given the choice of saving humanity through an interstellar space mission. The Earth in Nolan's vision is in dire straits, with a shortage of food placing all of humanity in dire straits.
What I loved about Nolan's take is his choice of delivering a scifi tale that's well grounded in the technology of today. No incredible cities of tomorrow in the distant skylines, no ultra-futuristic space ships with cold fusion drives..Whatever event it is that drives humanity towards this apocalyptic event seems to be happening in a more realistic version of the actual future, a visual choice I really appreciate Nolan taking.
Considering what we've been given a taste of in Interstellar and Nolan's penchant for mind bending narratives, as seen in movies like Memento, The Prestige and Inception I'm expecting some incredible twists when the movie premieres in November.
