Last night I saw Interstellar and loved it. It further cements Christopher Nolan’s reputation as one of our finest filmmakers.
There was one weird creative decision that I didn’t understand. Why, through so much of the movie, was there a three-year-old child screaming in the background? In the early scenes, I guess it made sense: there could have simply been a screaming three-year-old somewhere in their house. But later in the film, they’re out in space, and the film still had that bratty little kid in the background! Why? What was Nolan trying to say? Will it be addressed in the deleted scenes on the Blu-Ray?
Again, it was an excellent movie. I just don’t get why filmmakers would add the sounds of a horribly behaved child to scenes where, logistically, it made no sense. Maybe it was just too deep for me.
EDIT: Some readers have suggested that the kid was, in fact, in the movie theater and not part of the actual film. C’mon, readers…really? Do you really think that parents would bring a three-year-old child to a late-night showing of Interstellar and just let the kid wail away? Let’s be realistic.
