Interstellar ★★★½


Nashville Scene review. My biggest complaint, apart from the clunkiness of the dialogue (unlike many, I have no quarrel with the exposition per se—just wish the Nolans had found a way to make it sound less like people speaking lines taken verbatim from vintage Asimov or Clarke), is that the film rushes through much of the Earthbound setup in its haste to get to "the good stuff." I understand the concern, since some people are still bitching that the first act is interminable, but we don't really get the pleasure of seeing Coop and/or Murph work out the meaning of those bedroom anomalies, which is a lot of the fun with a story like this.

Also, I'm right in thinking that the bootstrap paradox rears its ugly head here, yes?
