2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

As a sci-fi space nerd, having the chance to see this on the big screen was an experience I’ll never forget. 2001 is a film that pioneered and inspired a new age of popular science fiction movies that I grew up obsessed with. An odyssey is truly the best way to describe it, I felt such  an array of emotions over the almost 3 hour runtime: awe, fear, and a lot of confusion. I don’t pretend to understand everything this film was trying to say. I know I won’t be able to come close. But I found what I was able to gather and interpret both intriguing and profound. The score was powerful, the visuals were breathtaking (so much so that I gasped at several shots), and the suspense Kubrick managed to create was palpable. I truly will never forget the experience of viewing this masterpiece for the first time.
