Not to be confused with Lolita from Interstellar Space, also released this year, Christopher Nolan‘s controversial Interstellar is doubtless 2014′s most ambitious film. With a starry cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, and Matt Damon, it tells the upbeat dystopian story of astronauts searching for a human-friendly planet in another galaxy to relocate survivors of what seems to be a warmed over Earth, turned into a global dust bowl. The special effects are ravishing, and the science — black holes, wormholes, tesseracts, the bulk, extra dimensions — is fascinating. If you’ve every wanted to escape Earth’s gravity and explore the universe, but were too shy to try, this picture’s for you.—Peter Biskind

“Interstellar, full of visual dazzle, thematic ambition, geek bait and corn (including the literal kind), is a sweeping, futuristic adventure driven by grief, dread and regret.”—A.O. Scott, New York Times

“The mix of wonky physics, mysticism, and genetically modified corn is so clunky it’s … fabulous.”—David Edelstein, New York Magazine

“It’s a mass audience picture that’s intelligent as well as epic, with a sophisticated script that’s as interested in emotional moments as immersive visuals. Which is saying a lot.”—Kenneth Turan, LA Times

“As the rare director whose singular vision is buoyed by infinite artistic freedom, Christopher Nolan would be derelict if he didn’t take gargantuan risks. It’s good for us that he does.”—Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly

“Double-domed and defiantly serious, Interstellar is a must-take ride with a few narrative bumps.”—Richard Corliss, Time Magazine

“The story is ever-ambitious, sometimes riveting and thought-provoking, but also plodding and hokey and not as visionary as its cutting-edge special effects.”—Claudia Puig, USA Today

“What the neg-heads are missing about Interstellar is how enthralling it is, how gracefully it blends the cosmic and the intimate, how deftly Nolan explores the infinite in the smallest human details.”—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
