Charlie 🌾’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is a pure masterpiece. This film is surely not for everyone, but I found it so mesmerising and hypnotic as it hooked me through the whole product. It felt as if I were watching a piece of artwork being painted right before my eyes. The whole film is absolute genius and is peak cinema for sure. Knowing it was made in 1968 it is really ahead of its time and felt like it was made in the future. The film is able to perfectly capture the whole idea of humankind and evolution and leaves us with many interpretations on what the film is trying to convey as it holds a very cryptic message. Words cannot describe the beauty of this film, and it honestly has some of the best cinematography and visuals I have ever witnessed. Also the soundtrack is the KING of all soundtracks, it is wonderfully done. Stanley Kubrick is amazing, and this film truly proves the talent he owns, it’s simply just such an important film!
