I have this movie review due by the end of this month. The objective is to write about the philosophical aspects of the movie, such as the branch of philosophy involved, any philosophical problems it poses and how it is addressed. I also need to relate them to the plot and characters in 1400 words. I'm thinking of doing the movie "Interstellar".

I've never done a movie review before, yet alone a philosophical one. This all seems a bit daunting and I'm not entirely sure how I should approach this.
Any suggestions?

Also, please pm me a sweet title for the review if you can think of one xD

There's an entire series of books titled "_____ and Philosophy". You can probably pick up a few ideas from reading those.

Do you know what school of philosophical thought you want to use in your paper? Don't make it hard on yourself by choosing a movie with a philosophical theme you may not be comfortable with. Ingmar Bergman made many films that dealt heavily with existentialism; The Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries are both great films to analyze for this purpose.

Interstellar can be analyzed from many different philosophical branches of thought. A suggestion would be existentialism - note the struggles of some of the characters in the movie during their journey through space.

You could also work outside the confines of just that one school of thought if the assignment allows for it. Note the way time is presented throughout the film - especially when the main character is touching his past events in a physical manner. This could fall under something like physicalism - but also think about whether or not there may be other schools of thought that would disagree with this interpretation of time.
