ThatBeeBoy’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is, and always will be, my favorite film of all time! One of the only true cinematic "experiences" out there, Kubrick shoots you up into the distant future for the grandest 2 1/2 hours in cinema. You really do feel like you're on another planet, in another world, and the feeling doesn't leave after the end credits; walking out of the theater, everything around you seems like it's part of something bigger. This story is closer to humanity than any other, as it relates to not just the individual human experience, but the evolution of man over the course of millions of years. 2001: A Space Odyssey is the ultimate provocation of the never ending mystery of time and space.
