2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

Everything that could have possibly been written about this film pretty much has been by now. So instead of reviewing 2001: A Space Odyssey, I'm just going to say - if you love 2001 as much as I do, here are some other films that you might enjoy:

- The Tree of Life (2011), dir. Terrence Malick
- Solaris (1972), dir. Andrei Tarkovsky
- Baraka (1992), dir. Ron Fricke
- Werckmeister Harmonies (2000), dir. Bela Tarr
- Under the Skin (2013), dir. Jonathan Glazer
- The Double Life of Veronique (1991), dir. Krzysztof Kieslowski
- It's Such a Beautiful Day (2012), dir. Don Hertzfeldt
- Angel's Egg (1985), dir. Mamoru Oshii
- Enter the Void (2009), dir. Gaspar Noe
- Waking Life (2001), dir. Richard Linklater
- Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975), dir. Peter Weir
- Altered States (1980), dir. Ken Russell
- Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), dir. Steven Spielberg
- Upstream Color (2013), dir. Shane Carruth

You may have seen some or all of these films, but they're movies which I personally believe carry a similar mystery as Kubrick's late-60s masterpiece. To me, 2001 is the greatest film ever made... if you think it's one of the Great Films too and have yet to see a few of the above films, give them a shot. You may find yourself absorbed in the mystery as well.
