It seems like director Christopher Nolan has turned water into wine once again with his latest film as the early reactions for Interstellar have hit the web. See what critics are saying about the space epic starring Matthew McConaughey.
With the embargo on Interstellar now over, critics are weighing in on The Dark Knight director's latest film and where it ranks among his previous work and the rest of the field of movies from this year. Is this the best work yet by Nolan?
Interstellar follows a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. The film stars McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Wes Bentley and Jessica Chastain.
Little White Lies' David Ehrlich says that Interstellar is by far the best and most comprehensively satisfying big-budget spectacle of the year and that's a serious problem. The cosmic margin by which Christopher Nolan's latest film eclipses its competition forces it to double as an unsettling reminder of how unimpressive such a feat has become.

Lots of goodness in Interstellar. Am I jealous Nolan gets to make big budget passion projects without apparent compromise? Damn right I am! — Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) October 27, 2014
Interstellar is emotional, intelligent, thrilling, and literally poetic at times in its plea to not go gentle into that good night.

Screen Crush's Mike Ryan says that Interstellar is a good movie that so desperately wants to be important, while HitFix's Drew McWeeny reports that he was moved by Interstellar and "there are stretches where it is as good and as pure as anything Nolan's made. You can feel just how important all of it is to him in every frame of the thing."
The critics have spoken! INTERSTELLAR is an Oscar. Christopher Nolan is a Best Picture. The film is a literal Academy Award. — Calum Marsh (@calummarsh) October 27, 2014
