    The perfect marriage between music and beautiful cinematography. Nuff said.

    I kind of liked it, but it felt like Kubrick was trying to suffocate me with a pillow, while I fought to hold onto a thread of consciousness.

    Kind of Evangelionesqe ending. Not as good though. I wonder if Hideaki Anno took any inspiration from Stanley.

    Every shot in 2001: A Space Odyssey is long and slow. The epicness of this film is highly exaggerated, making the wonder of space and the threats at hand seem that much more intense. The movie transcends criticism for its slow pace and uneventful plot- it wasn't made to be a thriller or an action movie or a comedy. The movie has little dialogue and the humanity it includes is minimal at best. "2001: A Space Odyssey" is a study…

    A beautifully poetic, allegorical, and extremely confounding masterpiece that contains some of the best set design and photography I have ever seen in a film. It's extremely compelling from straight to finish whether it comes in the form of allegorical content, tensity driven by HAL, or absolutely stunning cinematography.

    This is similar to a silent film in that the visual aspects of the film do all the storytelling. This is a bold, outlandish, and ultimately transcendent and satisfying piece of…

    There's sure a lot of eating in this movie.

    And a lot of great music by a some of my favorite composers (György Ligeti and Richard Strauss).

    2001 is most successful, I think, while revealing the fantastic through the mundane.

    70mm projected on a very large screen. I'm not going to say it's like watching a different movie, but I did notice certain details for the first time and certain shots made a very different impression on me. Still my favorite.

    A space epic that honestly is worthy of the title of an epic. Stanley Kubrick creates a compelling astrological film that defies both space and time.

    Kubrick's unique style brings this film to life. From lengthening his scenes to having minimal dialogue, Kubrick had the complete control in this film's fate. With this, he creates a film that is remarkable.

    Evolution ties this film together. This idea that things evolve are expressed by a black monolith. This evolution occurs when…

    A local theatre just set up a restored 70mm projector and the first film they showed was 2001: A Space Odyssey. The last time I watched this film was as a teen, thirty years ago, on a small television screen, with me sitting across the room, the volume not too loud so as not to disturb others who lived in the house. My experience last night was right in front of a huge screen, in front of a speaker, with…

    One of the most visionary and ambitious movies ever made, 2001: A Space Odyssey is full of great things: atonishing visuals and effects, amazing music, deep and complex still unexplained symbols, a timeless character like HAL-9000, interesting ideas on society and humanity, innovative technics, etc.

    2001 is divided into three parts (four if you count the TMA-I segment), each one great on its own and linked to the others: "The Dawn of Man", "The Jupiter Mission", and "Jupiter and Beyond…
