2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★½

A technical marvel, but not a movie that I will return to anytime soon. Didn't seem to be any real narrative momentum, and I kept checking out to think about other random things. The visuals weren't enough to keep me engaged, and I needed more than just that. I genuinely love a lot of what went down in the last hour in terms of visuals, but at that point I was so checked out of what was happening that I was just ogling at the visuals without trying to understand what it all means. I get why it's beloved. It's just not a movie that appeals to me
