2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★½

I'll give Kubrick props for pushing the boundaries of the genre into new territory, even if he has taken license to tell the story in twice the necessary time. The real positives in this are the tenacity and venom in the machine HAL 9000 and how beautifully classical music is woven into the piece, almost overtaking the importance of spectacular pictures with gloriously chosen music. It's a bit out there, but not a bad watch.
