Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 74 - Interstellar

Christopher Nolan's Interstellar has been one of the most divisive mainstream films of recent memory (probably since The Dark Knight Rises, appropriately enough) and that has proven to be the case within  the Shot/Reverse Shot offices. I didn't particularly care for the film, though I did admire it, while Joe thought it was pretty decent. Using that divergence of opinion as a jumping off point, Joe and I talk about Nolan's work in general, his strengths and weaknesses as a filmmaker, and how even Interstellar's failings demonstrate how Nolan has been able to reach the upper echelons of Hollywood filmmaking.
