Christopher Nolan has long been declared a genius — which, very well he is. Though, what separates him other genius directors is that he is more interested in the art of movie-making than story-telling. He tirelessly tries to bring his ambitious and far-reaching visions to screen, and mostly succeeds. With ‘Interstellar’, his effort was to combine the best of both worlds; and that’s why ‘Interstellar’ is simultaneously an extraordinarily ambitious tale of space and time voyage and a humanistic tale of father trying to re-unite with his daughter.
Since there are many who love ‘Interstellar’, we thought of putting together a list of movies that are similar in their scope and ambition — if not the same in their science. You can watch some of these movies like Interstellar on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
7. Solaris (2002)
A remake of Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1972 classic and one of the few remakes that manages to retain the greatness of the original while approaching the story with a unique new perspective. Starring George Clooney, the film is the story of a troubled psychologist who is sent to investigate the crew of an isolated research station orbiting a bizarre planet. Mysterious, beautiful and affecting, ‘Solaris’ is about how cruel memories sometimes can be. Even though the film flopped when it released, it is well respected in sci-fi fan communities and among critics.
