Craig Minett’s review published on Letterboxd:
Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey changed the way science fiction was portrayed on film, before 2001 sci-fi was B movie material, it wasn't taken seriously, Kubrick wanted to change this, not only did he change cinema forever, but he paved the way for other directors to portray serious sci-fi on screen.
The film shows pivotal points of humanity's evolution and a profound look at mankind's future. Don't expect easy answers, it's a film that demands your attention.
The story is told through visual imagery, It's like a visual poem with minimal dialogue, every frame in the film is captured in such an artistic way that it's deemed by many as high art.
The best way to experience this film is on the biggest screen you can find, I can guarantee that it will change the way you look at cinema forever.
