Richard Roeper at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a great 100 score, stating: “What a beautiful and epic film is Interstellar, filled with great performances, tingling our senses with masterful special effects, daring to be openly sentimental, asking gigantic questions about the meaning of life and leaving us drained and grateful for the experience.”
Lou Lumenick from the New York Post, gave it another perfect 100. He said: ” Genius director Christopher Nolan reaches for the stars in Interstellar — and delivers a soulful, must-see masterpiece, one of the most exhilarating film experiences so far this century.”
Scott Foundas at Variety, gave it a 100 grade too, saying: ” An exhilarating slalom through the wormholes of Christopher Nolan’s vast imagination that is at once a science-geek fever dream and a formidable consideration of what makes us human.”
Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 90 score, stating: “Interstellar turns out to be the rarest beast in the Hollywood jungle. It’s a mass audience picture that’s intelligent as well as epic, with a sophisticated script that’s as interested in emotional moments as immersive visuals. Which is saying a lot.”
A.O. Scott at The New York Times, gave it a 90 grade. He said: ” Like the great space epics of the past, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar distills terrestrial anxieties and aspirations into a potent pop parable, a mirror of the mood down here on Earth.”
Peter Travers from Rolling Stone, gave it an 88 grade, saying: “What the neg-heads are missing about Interstellar is how enthralling it is, how gracefully it blends the cosmic and the intimate, how deftly it explores the infinite in the smallest human details.”
