This must be Hans Zimmer’s greatest complete score. While Man of Steel, The Dark Knight, and Gladiator have their selections — the entire score of Interstellar is wondrous and immensely listenable. This piece is known as, First Step and Day One from the soundtrack.

I love the subtext within Nolan’s films. He has a constructionist attitude of the human race, and doesn’t over-dwell on social consciousness. Nolan is always nudging the audience with inspirational and heart-driven storytelling. I love this quote from Interstellar:

“We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements.

But we lost all that.

Or perhaps we’ve just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we’ve barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
