I always look forward to Christopher Nolan’s films; his big-budget spectacles are thought-provoking, result in thorough discussion and analysis by viewers, such as the end of “Inception” and the tightly-woven web he created in “The Prestige.” From a review perspective, his films are also difficult to discuss without spoilers, but I’m always up for a challenge, so here is the spoiler-free review of “Interstellar.”
The Southern Gothic genre has a long and storied history. For a period of time it seemed like filmmakers were abandoning the genre. Thankfully, it has been experiencing a resurgence as of late. Mostly independent features have been quietly slipping into theaters exploring a gritty South entrenched in violence. “Mud” is an entry that proves the genre still has plenty of interesting stories to tell.
