The Rewind (1960’s) 2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Mystery/Science Fiction
Directed by Stanley Kubrick

2001: A Space Odyssey is a film ahead of its time. The production value is exquisite and at that moment in time had no equal (as far as films about space exploration went). Everything about it is meticulously put together. The cast and the writing is superb as well. This is a stunning masterpiece of film that Kubrick has created.

All of that being said, I find the movie boring and prolonged. It is one of those films that I can marvel about the details and production of the movie in the late 1960’s, but then grow weary of the actual content. I have great respect for the movie and I love the look of it, just it doesn’t hold my interest.

What is your favorite Stanley Kubrick film?
