2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

I’ve been saving watching this for a long time and I finally decided the time is right. This is one of the most perfect and well thought out films I’ve ever seen. Its one of those movies that you get completely sucked into through the beautifully innovative shots, visuals and angles. I forgot about real life for the 2 hours and 30 minutes that this film was on and all I was focused on was what was happening in the moment and why it was happening. I was confused the whole time but yet still so drawn in by the curiosity of it all. The way that important plot points are translated from screen to viewer so casually through the use of dialogue is very cool and intellegent. 

I’ve read a few articles on this to try and understand it better but I still feel kinda confused (I think thats the point). I’m def gonna read up on it more and have to rewatch it many times to form my own ideas. I love the fact that there isn’t really any real explanation of the ending and that its completely down to the viewer, film that makes us think really is the best kind of film.
