2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

Holy hell. I'm so lucky to have the chance to watch my favorite film in a cinema because it was such a fascinating experience. This viewing truly cemented that 2001 is easily the best film made about the metaphysics of people's achievements; that humans may not be all that in regards to pushing towards "progress" and modernity. Perhaps there is more to why the things we have today are there. 2001 hints at God, or some sort of divine power controlling the workings of the universe, and for that I will always love it. Anyone who says it's lifeless and cold will confuse me because 2001 has at the core of it the lifeblood of numerous works of great art: humility.
