“I have never been bored by a film that is nearly 3 hours long and deals with complex scientific theories.”
Christopher Nolan has done a great job in creating interest among audiences for the’secrets of the Universe’, which no one is able to uncover. Nolan transforms a scientific report into a dramatized film. Interstellar entertains audiences despite its long runtime and complex content. The film poses many questions, such as the one about black holes, time travel or other habitable worlds. Nolan also made Interstellar realistic by basing every scene on cosmological theories.
Interstellar, therefore, is not just about love, but also about faith. Interstellar has a strong combination of science and philosophy. Nolan tells this story from different characters’ perspectives: Cooper has to decide whether he will choose his daughter or humanity. Murph has lost both his parents. And Dr. Brand is brave but more vulnerable emotionally than her co-workers. Now, the audience is able to sense characters’ love, faith, and pain. The film illustrates how humans are capable of complex emotions, which is more than what the universe can offer. We learn the “lessons in life” from the film.
This film is a good example of “the fascinating cosmological ideas” and the “philosophy”.
Interesting Cosmological TheoriesInterstellar a sci fi film based on complete theories of cosmology. In this film, we see many theories still in question, such as those of Hawking and Einstein on the fifth dimension, Relativity and Wormholes. Interstellar is a great film for those who know the theories, but how about the ones who don’t? Interstellar is not a science film, but it can still explain the theories through perfect CGI. Visualization is used to explain the theories, so even those without a background may be attracted.
Nolan’s presentation of many cosmological ideas, even if they are hypotheses, is based on “imagination”. Interstellar is also praised for this factor. Einstein believed that people should use their imaginations to help create evolution, because “knowledge is finite”. It is impossible to know what would happen if you were to travel through a Black Hole or fall into a Wormhole. Nolan tells the story based on scientific knowledge that Cooper sees his life’s timeline after falling into a dark hole. Nolan not only piques the interest of the audience, but also contributes to the development of the black-hole theory. No one will ever be able to imagine what’s going on inside a black hole.
The PhilosophyInterstellar illustrates the humans’ emotions that are more complicated than the universe. This film tells the story of a father, who left his daughter to search for a habitable planet because the world was about to end. The storyline may seem simple but the small details have a powerful impact on the audience. The audience may ask “why did he do it?” or “what was his real purpose?”. The story tells us that Cooper’s Lazarus journey was not undertaken to save the world, but rather for ‘his child’. His motivation is love; it is also the key to his journey.
Murph was still hopeful that her father will return someday, no matter how far Cooper had been away. Promise is what binds them. Cooper believed in his daughter even though they were millions of lightyears apart. Murph never stopped hoping that her dad would return.
Interstellar has a lot of strength in this area. The film teaches the audience more than just the plot of the movie. Murph’s love for Cooper and their faith in God allows them to finally meet. If we lack emotions, our humanity will be lost, and we’ll feel like the black holes.
