    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    Watched 2001 for HAL's birthday, early in the evening. Slightly drowsy, so I occasionally dosed off.
    Watching it for the third time I noticed a few things more prominently than before.
    1. The colors are wonderfully striking.
    2. HAL displays far more emotion early on than I had previously noticed.
    3. The stargate sequence and the location following it both begin and end through the Monolith.

    Watching this feels like you're seeing the rules of action cinema being rewritten before your eyes and all by going back to basics and picking up where we left off before we used CG as the only option: economic storytelling told partially through dialog but mostly through visuals and actions, all in the purpose of astonishing stunt work and impressively on-point gender politics.

    There was a kid a few seats over from me in the theater. Every few minutes I could hear the movie rewiring his brain.
