And Kubrick said "Let there be cinema"

2001: A Space Odyssey is a miracle.
A thought-provoking exploration of the mankind's place in the universe, but most surprisingly, an incredibly entertaining and endlessly rewatchable audio-visual experience, despite its slow pace.

This movie keeps my eyes glued to the screen for its whole runtime. Through the long sequence of ships moving through space, through the seemingly endless stargate sequence, even when it's literally just a black screen, I'm hooked; hypnotized, entranced. Once it's starts, there's no going back.

This movie came out in 1968 and it still holds up. The effects are some of the best of all time. The sound is terrifying. The visuals are stunning.

This is easily one of the most beautiful films ever. Everything comes together so perfectly. Lighting, set design, costumes, special effects, music, colors, sound, editing; It's all cinematic perfection.

This is the ultimate Sci-fi film.
One of the few movies that I would call Perfect.
