2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

The first time I saw this movie two years ago, I thought it was long, boring and too slow, but I reckoned it as the greatest cinematic effort made by Kubrick.
You were so wrong, old me.
Last night I saw it in a cinema for its 50 anniversary and... boys, let me tell you, it was EXCEPTIONAL. Visually stunning, technically amazing and perfectly executed, "2001: A Space Odyssey" is a true masterpiece.
Having watched it before, I knew what was about to happen and I could experience it at the very best, thinking about the overall meaning.
There are few films that make you think about it even after a couple of days and 2001 is one of them. This is the main reason I rated it 5/5.

Also, HAL is probably one of the best character ever created.
