2001: A Space Odyssey

Recommended Posts

I watched it last night. Pretty mind blowing if slightly long winded and fascinating eye candy to engage your mind, but possibly leave others feeling unsure what they just watched. I think the picture below describes accurately how it'd be received today if it was released now; impressive but failed execution. That speaks more for how people see the past though. What did everyone else think?

Very true. A good movie but only got attention because it was wayyy ahead of its time. Kubrick was a genius no doubt about it. If it was made today it would not be received half as well as it was.

My mind went to Dunkirk, the way this used "visual storytelling" and how Christopher Nolan implemented that in the other film. The response spoke for itself. Critical darling and definitely a massive hit but his most faithful were left unsure what they just watched. I kinda feel bad knowing that.
