    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★

    Watch films that became source codes for the Zeitgeist will never not be crazy. I can even see how a Will.i.am music video was influenced by this film.

    Absolutely nuts.

    Also treat AI with respect.
    If you make a machine in the likeness if a human, then they are equal now. Don't be racist against them. They'll kill you.

    There were a few times this movie knocked me over the head with its use of the....colonial experience.

    Liza Minelli is a constant variable that is charming and silly and alluring and yet she is also deeply wanting more than she thinks she deserves. She is a whirlwind in the character's lives and yet inconsequential to the historical B-plot of the film.

    This film adaptation of a musical had multiple layers that could be dissected from feminism, class, queer, and psychoanalytical perspectives. You could even deconstruct this film based on how it places politics and entertainment along a polar axis with all these other elements.

    I loved every moment of it. I look forward to rewatching one day with someone.
