2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★½

My first time seeing it on the big screen and (slightly) under the influence and I can definitively say that you haven't properly experienced 2001 if it wasn't on 70mm and in booming surround sound. Unfortunately, my high was gone by the time the third act light show hit, but this was the best experience I've had with the film. I still find it a bit chilly, more of a feat of technical direction than of science-fiction story-telling, but there's certainly pleasure to be derived from watching this slow-motion interstellar ballet of space pods and Star Children.
