THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
2012, Warner Bros., 165 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Nolan

Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) finds himself up against both relentless evil force Bane (Tom Hardy) and mysterious jewel thief Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) as he is wrenched from retirement by the threatened destruction of all of Gotham City. Christopher Nolan wraps up his Batman trilogy with a satisfying, complex and insanely ambitious meditation on heroism and class that is arguably the greatest comic book film of all time.


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.
