This Chart Will Help You Understand 'Interstellar' Better

Still confused by "Interstellar"? Is your brain hurting in an attempt to piece together the time-warped timeline? Have no fear, because this simplified chart will blow away all that mental dust.

Spoiler alert: If you have not seen "Interstellar," stop reading this post now. Traveling through a wormhole will not save you from spoilers!

Frame-Tale designer Dogan Can Gundogdu decided to break down Christopher Nolan's latest in a visually-appealing chart that maps out the film's puzzling timeline. If you couldn't quite figure out where Dr. Mann's (aka that actor we do not name) planet was in time in relation to Earth, or if you were confused about the movie's ending existing in two separate times, then this will clear things up. Oh, and Gundogdu only saw "Interstellar" once before making this chart, so clearly it's not that hard to comprehend.

Also, everyone out there still listing all the plot holes in "Interstellar," Nolan has a message for you: your efforts are fruitless.

"I’m very aware of the plot holes in my films and very aware of when people spot them," Nolan recently told the Daily Beast, "but they generally don’t."

If you're still confused -- and convinced that "Interstellar" makes no sense -- take a dive into this intricate chart by Reddit user sto-ifics42. Either way, Nolan is of the belief that not all films need to be understood as much as they "need to be felt."
