Christopher Nolan's space epic Interstellar is a big, ambitious picture but it didn't connect with our critics. We discuss the film at the top of this week's podcast before moving onto a few other notable films on screens large and small this week.


– The Disney film Big Hero 6 (At 29 minutes)

– The Stephen and Jane Hawking story The Theory of Everything (At 38:30)

– Jean-Luc Godard's visually playful Goodbye to Language (At 49:45)

– The stellar, infuriating new doc on Netflix, Virunga (At 52:40)

– Margaret Brown's BP oil spill documentary The Great Invisible (At 56:25)
