2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

Everyone knows about THE jump cut, but the one that always gave me chills was the cut from HAL to the POV of the astronaut's mouths inside the pod. All the editing here is so bold.

2001 is interesting because it seems no matter where you are on the moviegoer spectrum, everyone can agree this weird, slow, abstract film is a masterpiece. At the very, very least, a masterclass in special effects.

After MGM found stoners flocking to 2001's limited release, they changed the film's tagline to "the ultimate trip" which is just amazing.
