2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

Watching this film in IMAX, and knowing every scene so well going into the rewatch, has an effect of revealing the technical limitations of the visual magic that Kubrick and his crew conjured up, but that's more than compensated for by the vast scale and incredible sound system. The Stargate sequence in particular has never been more overwhelmingly powerful. I might go check it out one more time just to re-experience the majestic sonic textures. Or maybe I'll just look forward to cranking it up at home when the new 4K UHD disc arrives later this year.
