2001 Space Odyssey [1968]

“This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.”

Soooo. 2001 Space Odyssey.. Nice to meet you.. I hear you’re #1.. Y U SO LONG?

It’s not made for today’s audience. Really slow to start. Really slow to end. But undoubtedly the most epic film I’ve ever seen. Complete with weird CGI floating baby.

Again 70s meant that there were weird ideas of women that made me think women were sort of ornamental. I wish Hal played a bigger part. The film touched on a million sci fi tropes because it made them what they are. And references suddenly all made sense upon watching.

Would recommend watching once to see this super indulgent film. But maybe one is all you need.
