2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) has given me my ears there daily intake for the day and it’s only just turned 12pm, I will say it’s NOT for everyone and it’s definitely not for those who hate slow paced movies as this would more than likely send you off to sleep.
For me I can understand and fully respect the movie on many levels, it’s very many layers that screams  a re-watch in the future to truly understand what it’s telling us. 

One thing I did pick up on however is when one of the crew is playing chess with HAL-9000, HAL checkmates him and wins, later on in the film HAL turns nasty when he lip reads the crew talking about turning him off and replacing him, thus making HAL to execute the remaining crew members, The crew member that was playing chess with HAL is now stuck outside of the ship and metaphorically HAL has now checkmated him again, this time IRL.
