2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

Even for those less fond of the genre, Stanley Kubrick’s magnum opus delivered something far more engrossing beyond what most movies of its kind ever could. The director used his signature kaleidoscopic gaze to explore a whole spectrum of universal themes and subjects that resonate within our world and it’s truly captivating to witness from the get-go. Somehow, Kubrick exercised his technical artistry to such a degree, he managed to find the perfect balance between arthouse intellectualism and blockbuster entertainment, which ultimately provided a mesmerising trip into intergalactic oblivion; a place where humanity is just a speck of dust against a much larger picture of life itself.
