2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

Watching 2001 reminded me of the hypnotic quality I experienced in some other films, most notably in Taxi Driver and Stalker, but here the hypnotism is used on a whole new level. I can’t even begin to unpack what this film means and despite it being very slow paced, it actually went by pretty quick. It’s extremely beautiful, way ahead of its time, and so entrancing that I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. If you haven’t seen it, make sure you’re patient and in the right mood when you watch it or else it might be a bit tedious. Also, try not to have any distractions because you’ll be completely taken out of the experience. I’m looking forward to revisiting 2001: A Space Odyssey in the future because it certainly requires multiple viewings.
