The Intersection of Comedy & Drama

Christopher Nolan is now a verb.

The director of gritty, epic dramas that are grounded in realism and groundbreaking science-fiction, yet elevated with labyrinths of mind-bending plot twists, has carved out a space of his own in the cinematic world. His style is definitive. Nolan’s innovative take on movies (honoring the past while reaching for new dimensions) has resulted in a strong following (pardon the pun).

Nolan’s latest film, Interstellar, was an operatic space epic that took adventures into the stars to another level because of its gravity in scientific theory. Along with the brilliant soundtrack by composing collaborator Hans Zimmer, Interstellar will inspire future filmmakers, composers, actors and storytellers.  

And this, surprisingly, includes fans of comedy.

We’ll never look at Mel Brooks and his movie Spaceballs the same way again…

I love it.
