INTERSTELLAR
2014, Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures, 169 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Nolan

In the not-too-distant future, life on Earth can no longer sustain itself. It’s up to Cooper, a pilot-turned reluctant farmer-turned astronaut, to lead a team into space to look for new worlds to inhabit. Combining family drama with eye-popping visuals and mind-expanding philosophical inquiry, Nolan’s sci-fi epic stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow and Michael Caine and won an Oscars for its stunning visual effects. “An enormous undertaking that, like all the director’s best work, manages to feel handcrafted and intensely personal, “Interstellar” reaffirms Nolan as the premier big-canvas storyteller of his generation, more than earning its place alongside THE WIZARD OF OZ, 2001, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND and GRAVITY in the canon of Hollywood’s visionary sci-fi head trips.” - Scott Foundas, Variety.


FOLLOWING
1998, IFC Films, 69 min, UK, Dir: Christopher Nolan

In writer-director Christopher Nolan’s startling feature debut, an aspiring author (Jeremy Theobald) researches his first book by following strangers in London. One of these, the dark, stylish Cobb (Alex Thaw), catches the young man in the act and befriends him. But Cobb is a burglar, and his follower grows to love the illicit thrills of breaking and entering - until the two steal from a blonde (Lucy Russell) who turns out to be a gangster’s girlfriend. Shot in black-and-white on a shoestring budget, the film keeps audiences guessing with a nonlinear storytelling style similar to Nolan’s breakthrough follow-up, MEMENTO. “A taut, ingenious British neo-noir.” - Los Angeles Times
