1. “Inside Interstellar.” For EW, Jeff Jensen’s cover story on Christopher Nolan’s emotional space odyssey.
“Nolan says he has been changed by Interstellar, but he’s still figuring out how. ’The character of Cooper opened up something for me about the emotional possibilities of a protagonist,’ he says, and he relates to Brand, the scientist who believes love is essential even though it defies logic. ’A lot of my job is what you might call scientific,’ Nolan says. ’I have always tried to pour myself into the technical side of filmmaking, the things I can control. I relate to the struggle to quantify the elements that are giving you an emotional response. That always feels impossible to me. But I keep trying. A film being more than the sum of its parts is a true mystery.’”
