Interstellar ★★½

Nolan pulls a Shymalan and in the process of trying to be too clever bogs down a film that had so much more potential. It is gorgeous that is without question but its aesthetic appeal is not enough to save the exposition-heavy dialogue (that is often too heavily invested in scientific jargon) and subpar "twist". that culminated in an ending that felt forced.

Ultimately, Nolan got caught trying to throw too many elements together and the film suffered because he couldn't decide between space action thriller ( a la Alien) or an emotional study of human character ( or the flaws of the human a la 2001: A Space Odessey)
