A wet Monday afternoon at the cinema.
Yesterday afternoon, B dragged herself away from the stables and we went to the cinema to see "Interstellar", Christopher Nolan's epic film about the future of mankind (I'm trying not to give away the end of the film).
169 minutes, that is 2 hours 49 minutes, of high quality photography, acting, music. This is film making on a grand scale. No CGI, no green screen, just lots of location and studio work. A big wall of sound with chunks of silence, at times the dialogue was difficult to hear. If you are thinking of seeing this film, I recommend you go to a good cinema, do not wait for the DVD or television, see it on that big screen. Nolan's vision is on an epic scale, I loved it, but it is long.
