Will’s review published on Letterboxd:
As we all know, visually, it’s breathtaking. I was overly impressed with how incredible it looked.
I can’t wrap my head around the fact that this was made in the 60s. It could easily be released now and would blow any type of cgi/animated film out of the water.
I don’t understand how they filmed most of the shots and I don’t think I want too. The fact that a film like this, with very little computer technology, could blow me away with how mind bending it is. The creativity is beyond anything that I could imagine.
Just so much ahead of its time by so many years.
I’m a huge fan of lighting. The film hit all my needs. Beautifully lighten 24/7. The way it was used, clearly shaped the use of it in cinema.
The score is just unbelievable. It’s either deathly silence or masterful orchestral music. The sounds effects were on point and made me feel like I was losing my mind at most of the time.
Basically, this film should of come out 20 years from now. Which also proves that Stanley Kubrick is a time traveler. Or maybe he’s just a genius...
