2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

Was fortunate enough to catch this in IMAX. There’s no point in explaining why 2001 is such an amazing movie because everyone else has already done that.

The actual story of 2001 is good, but what makes it an experience is Kubrick’s direction. There’s very minimum dialogue as almost everything is played out in real time. The film also exhibits how powerful the use of sound and music can be.

 Every time I watch it, I’m always baffled as to how Kubrick got this thing made and why it looks better than over 50% of what comes out now.
