2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

So I’ve watched this in middle school, high school and once in recent years. For some odd reason, I’ve never been the biggest fan of it. This time around, it really connected with me and I was speechless for the entire runtime. It’s so beautiful, scary, creepy, witty and just one of the best of all time. For this to be a picture from 1968 is mine boggling. While there are moments where it feels to drag a tad, all of the good outweighs that nonsense. 

I have to do a dive and rewatch all of Kubrick’s work. I always rewatch The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, Eyes Wide Shut and Full Metal Jacket, but man, this dude makes some awesome films. 

Also, this was my first watch of it in 4K and it looked spectacular. Iconic and essential are understatements for this masterclass of cinema.
