Consensus: Interstellar represents more of the thrilling, thought-provoking, and visually resplendent filmmaking moviegoers have come to expect from writer-director Christopher Nolan, even if its intellectual reach somewhat exceeds its grasp.

Jessica Chastain deserves Best Supporting Actress consideration for her work. One of the most beautiful films I have ever seen.

It's flawed, certainly, but its vision is undeniably appealing and ultimately the film's saving grace.

There are many words to describe Interstellar. Entertainment isn't one of them.

After the first hour, with its poignant depiction of humanity's decline, Interstellar always seems to be rebuilding its momentum, offering plenty to think about but little to hold on to.

A film made with meticulousness and ambition, that achieves its tasks both narrative and visual with singular efficiency and grandiloquence that never feels forced. [Full review in Spanish]

"Interstellar" is a grand undertaking, but in shooting for the stars, it loses its footing. It goes to infinity and beyond, when infinity would have been plenty.

It's a film I didn't exactly enjoy and can't say I would recommend. And yet as an event, as a singular movie-watching opportunity, it's undoubtedly worthwhile.

Interstellar, though ambitious and thrilling at points, is too complicated and doesn't reach its full potential.
