    I have finally watched... and Mother of God... I CAN FEEL IT

    2001’s strengths work together in a way that I’ve never seen on a screen before. Trusting a director with every single decision for 2.5 hours is honestly a weird feeling. 


    I keep on thinking Kubrick is still alive because these movies feel like they were made this year, and it is depressing. I’m also at the point where watching a non-Kubrick film seems pointless. I have entered dangerous Kubrick…

    This is fantastic. And it’s now on Netflix! Don’t let the 2.5 hour run time intimidate you. This film moves at a great pace and captivates throughout. I was slightly bored for about 10 minutes towards the end of the second act but that’s about it. 

    Burning never fully reveals its cards - on just about every level. My imagination was consistently sparked and I was thinking heavily throughout the run time. Pay attention to even your smallest of thoughts, I think they all are relevant to how you experience this film


    So good
