Recommended. There are two places in the universe that return absolutely no signals . . . black holes and death. Beyond their respective horizons, landscapes unroll that are arguably unknowable. For Interstellar, director Christopher Nolan (The Prestige) boldly goes right past them. While Interstellar isn’t as good a yarn as Memento or Inception; it’s pretty damn good. Nolan’s movies rely primarily on the story and mood and traditional acting isn’t required. Nevertheless, Matthew McConaughey (The Dallas Buyer’s Club), Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables) and Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) are solid and John Lithgow (Love Is Strange) is even more than solid. The film is well-shot by Hoyte Van Hoytema (Let The Right One In) and is spectacular in both intimate and action scenes. Unfortunately, the overbearing Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight) score is all noise, obscuring both message and medium. The ending wanders a bit into its own black hole.
