2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

Holy shit.

One of, if not the greatest movie I've ever seen.

Stanley Kubrick is a genius. I've only seen 2 of his films but both are masterpieces and I can already tell how much of an influence he was on cinema.

Everything about this movie is perfect, beautiful, and artistic. How did they have such magnificent visuals in the '60s? So simple yet so complex. From the moment the music starts over black screen to the moment the screen reads "directed by Stanley Kubrick", I was absolutely electrified.

Only thing that didn't sell me was the ending. I'm not sure exactly what happened. Not that I'd take points of for it but I just need to understand, can someone please explain to me what the hell happened at the end?
