Connor Norcott’s review published on Letterboxd:
back on the Kubrick binge; 2001 is so iconic and has permeated nearly every square inch of pop-culture in some way that it feels redundant to even try and add further explanation. It’s 100% as good as people say and then some, how half of this was possible in 1968 is astonishing.
In ways it’s Kubrick’s most human film, and yet the inescapable coldness keeps us at arms length. I’m still confused & think I always will be but I’m okay with that.
