“I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal”
2001: A Space Odyssey is a movie far ahead of its time. Whether that be in its cinematography or its prediction of technology. This film looks fantastic for the year it was made as it looks so much better than the movies of decades ahead (Blade Runner). The cinematography is also beautiful whether it’s the flyby’s of the space ships or the use of the camera. The score in this is iconic in its own right as I had heard these songs before without even connecting them to this film. Also, the story was super interesting and ambiguous which made it even better. I loved the crew’s relationship with HAL and thought those made for the best story points. Overall, an amazing film that has a great look, feel and story.
Overall Rating: A+
