INTERSTALLAR

We saw Interstellar last night, and I'm glad that we did...even though it's lengthy and quite cerebral, it's a cool, insightful, extremely original and very well-crafted cinematic work...you have to pay close attention to keep up, and as a cinephile, I can't honestly say that I loved loved loved it from the standpoint of what is my own personal preference in film genres, but it's no doubt one of the most thought-provoking movies that I've seen in quite a while...maybe ever...

The entire, award-winning cast is platinum standard, and my prediction is that it will at least be nominated for Best Picture next year at the Oscars (these type of prestige films that come out this time of year are usually contenders), if not take top prize...


My limited understanding of Quantum Physics made me appreciate the film even more than I would have if I hadn't been looking into the subject and writing about it so mcuh over the last year, and its amazing insights about time and relativity and multiple dimensions were interesting enough to me that I wouldn't rule out the possibility of going to see it again...or maybe I'll wait for it to come out on Blu-ray so that I can absorb all the extras and maybe understand it even a little better...


But a picture is no doubt worth a thousand words...Interstellar gave me a lot to think about, especially because it touches on the profound power of love, as it relates to transcending time and space and multiple dimensions/realities...


I've been thinking a lot about this verse from the Amplified Bible the last few days (thanks, Bonnie C. for reminding me of it!):


"[For my concern is] that their hearts may be [braced (comforted, cheered, and encouraged) as they are knit together in love, that they may come to have all the abounding wealth and blessings of assured conviction of understanding, and that they may become progressively more intimately acquainted with and may know more definitely and accurately and thoroughly that mystic secret of God, [which is] Christ (the Anointed One)."

(Colossians 2:2 - AMP)

Wow..."that mystic secret of God"...that may be my favorite phrase from any NT translation...


I want to explore the mystic secret of God in the way that the astronauts in Interstellar explored space and "wormholes" and relativity and infinite possibilities...


What a great time to be alive!

    We saw it here on IMAX. It was amazing. Now I have to rewatch episodes of "Through the Wormhole" by Morgan Freeman!
