Imagine it's the end of the Earth and you are held responsible for figuring out what the future of humanity holds. A former spaceship pilot goes on a mission through a wormhole to find inhabitable places for humanity. Using state-of-art digital effects, Christopher Nolan has made you believe in 5 dimensions through the movie. He has tried to answer questions so many us have for years about existentialism. Wormhole mouths and black holes are depicted as genuinely three-dimensional holes, while the high-energy colliding matter is vividly portrayed. So impressively does Interstellar render these phenomena that if we ever see such things close-up, reality may suffer by comparison?
