    Just watched it again...still don't get it. Is it deep, or is it just up it's own arse?

    Good movie though.

    Are these two 'places' mutually exclusive?

    I didn't think it was either, and I also enjoyed it despite the somewhat flakey ending.

    Interstellar, now theres a movie which tries to be deep but just ends up being boring.

    There are lots of films I didn't get. Having a tendency to fall asleep
    once I'm curled up on a sofa doesn't help.

    It's both...
    The movie is deep up it's own arse.

    Excellent movie with a poor ending.

    At the end of interstellar I was like "what just happened?"

    Good movie, though I didn't like the extended action sequence at the end. Seemed kind of pointless, and bored me.

    A lot of people like Roger Ebert praised it for being original; but it was pretty much the same concept as the Matrix (a world in our minds which seems real but is actually manufactured while we're in a sleep-like state). They even have all of the gravity-defying, running-up-the-walls-and-flip-at-odd-angles thing. And just like the Matrix, if you die in the dream world, you die in the real world as well.

    Again, it was a good movie. Not something I'd want to see again, though.

    A movie I saw a while back that I thought was quite deep was Cloud Atlas (2012). Most of the actors played multiple roles as the movie unfolds through 6 different eras. Do not fall asleep watching this, you will wake up wondering if you're watching the same movie.

    will check it out. Babel is quite deep. I ended up feeling sorry for the little Japanese girl in the end.

    Babel, I think, is a very complicated film. If I remember correctly there are three or more stories which are connected in a way I couldn't quite figure out.

    It was actually quite simple.

    Japanese - daughter of guy who went shooting in Morocco
    Moroccan kids using gun given to the guide as a present
    American couple on holiday in Morocco
    Spanish Nanny looking after their kids while they were travelling.

    4 stories, 4 languages Babel.

    Quite a good movie.

    Very good even if I couldn't quite get all of it. Cate Blanchett is my favourite screen actress, there is noone better.
    Thank you for clarifying.

    I was so happy to read this morning that '´Moonlight' won three Oscar Awards - Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay - very good film.
