Stephen Colbert Demands Christopher Nolan Explain Why His Movies Make Us Think
‘Colbert Report’ host Stephen Colbert likes to be entertained when he goes to the movies—if that involves a lot of stuff getting blown up, all the better—and if said entertainment is served up with a heaping side of “thinking stuff,” well, he doesn’t really know what to do with that. On last night’s ‘Report,’ Colbert hosted ‘Interstellar’ director Christopher Nolan, who has a knack for making Colbert think and get excited about the blowing up stuff. Why, Colbert wondered, can’t Nolan just be satisfied with making entertaining stuff? Why must he make us think?
Nolan had a pretty good answer for that query, but the real star of this clip is the duo yelling back and forth at each other about “blowing sh*t up.” It’s entertaining and it will make you think.
