Watcthing Interstellar was a real pleasure for me, science fiction fan since I was a kid, and always looking for genre films that are not only action, fantasy and great special effects. Movies that do not let you regret the masterpieces of science fiction. Movies that are not sequels, two out of three (to be generous) worst the the original. Interstellar is what I expected. And I was immediately caught in the early scenes, when Mackenzie Foy (my favorite in the cast) wields scale models of the Apollo project. I have the same models in my room !!! what emotion ... All the scientific aspects and extrapolative the future are plausible. The film follows the classic structure of science fiction: if today we see trends, what will happen in the future if they continue and increase ? Global warming, desertification, space travel ...... and then black holes, wormholes, relativity, time dilation, multidimensional spaces ... there is everything, in a coherent plot. The details are almost perfect. Two years to get to Saturn: absolutely plausible, seen rarely in a scifi movie. And a feast for the eye: the black hole, perfect; the overwhelming size of interstellar space and interplanetary spaceship that is barely visible. The only mistake I noticed (but it could due to the Italian is the distance of the nearest star of "thousands" of light years .... but no matter. The plot is intelligent and never predictable. The actors give a good performance; for some reason I was especially struck by Mackenzie Foy, but also Michael Caine, Casey Affleck and Matt Damon are great. Matthew McConaughey on the other hand is for me a bit 'too Texan, but I suppose he suited to the part .... Of course I found references to past scifi masterpieces such as 2001 (though insuperable) (aliens send signals to help us, a spacetime door around Saturn - as it was in the original draft of 2001) and many others - to name just one, Demon Seed with Julie Christie has a fractal robot similar to those of this wonderful film.
Sometimes the pace is a bit 'slow, but does not affect the final result.
Finally I want to remember the scene that moved me the most, I think the best representation of the drama that can create a temporal asynchrony when a still young father after his trip into the black hole meets his daughter left innormal spacetime now old and dying. This film deserves to be nominated for an Oscar and is definitely the best scifi movie of 2014
