2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the strangest movies I've ever seen and in the best way possible. I'll admit, I'm pretty confused with some of the film. I do not fully understand the meaning behind every scene. As of right now, I think the overall meaning of the movie is about the dangers of technological advancements in terms of technology outsmarting humans and the creation of nuclear weapons. I will say that I know that is movie is fantastic in terms of writing and technical aspects of filmmaking. This movie is perfectly paced. The cinematography is outstanding. This movie has to be one of the most visually stunning movies I've ever seen. Even thought this film come out in 1968, this film looks much better than most blockbusters today. Every scene in this film is very memorable and sparks a special type of emotional reaction. The performances are outstanding. My favorite performances in this film are Keir Dullea as David Bowie and Douglas Rain as HAL 9000. Last but not least, the fantastic score. This film's score has to be one of the greatest scores of all time. The score is so iconic. Even if you haven't seen this film before, you have at least heard its score before.
I'm definitely need to rewatch this film again in the future. I'm going to need plenty of time to progress this film. I think that is a great thing. Movies should be challenging, even if it means thinking about it deeply, discussing the meaning of it with other people, and rewatching it several more times. These are my favorite types of films. This movie is one of the greatest films I have ever seen. It definitely gets a 10/10.
