2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

The definition of a 5 star movie. You could call it pompous, dull, snail paced, repetitive, confusing and it is all these things (only a negative depending on your point of view) but A Space Odyssey's execution of scale, ambition and dedication to experience is almost unparalleled. Truly unique composition, breathtaking in its intention, its visuals and production design are (almost) timeless and that last act is a real mind-smelter. Totally sweet Kubrick.
