Nolan’s space epic about a mission to find a new world or humanity is sometimes unfairly dismissed as spectacle exceeding substance. Of course, its story snares are more passionate than philosophical and you could drive a bus through the vast Catch-22 of its time and gravity twisting closure, yet it’s an uncommon occasion in science fiction: a fruitful blockbuster. Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and Jessica Chastain all exceed expectations in their lead jobs and the portrayal of Earth in the last throes of a worldwide biological breakdown has a genuine effect. The splendid set pieces, including a practical delineation of a dark gap, and an extraordinary Hans Zimmer soundtrack, add to the feeling of scale and dramatization.
