So quiet, so silent, yet so chilling and deep-cutting. I simply cannot believe this is from 1968. Visually it is almost perfect, at most points even better than most films made in this decade. And in concept it's flawless, so accurate and intelligent... Kubrick and C. Clarke, you were freakin' visionaries.
You know that feeling you get when you go through a bunch of wikipedia articles about outer space and you start to feel so insignificant and small in front of the vast and mysterious universe your mind could never possibly comprehend? That weird mix of both dread and fascination? That's this movie.
Slow paced but brilliant: Beautifully photographed, amazing scenaries and really heavy on atmosphere. It's curious how some moments were actually frightening or unsettling without showing anything particularly violent or disturbing. I loved HAL, one of the most memorable villains I have seen. A movie that was really ahead of its time, amazing visuals and great plot concepts, themes and messages. Unforgettable ending.
It's starting to be mainstream as fuck but I just don't give a damn! This is the movie that most changed me as a person, and that's a bad thing, I was happy, now I'm a philosophical chaotic being filled with a never ending feeling of melancholia...
The only movie that manages to astonish and delight me while simultaneously putting me to sleep. Great dreams to be had this way though.
Inovador pela sua estética e efeitos, esta obra-prima é um dos filmes mais complexos do cinema. Kubrick nos conduz a uma viagem visual, com direito a uma elipse de quatro milhões de anos pela evolução humana. Marcante pelo uso da música como elemento inseparável da narrativa e minimizando diálogos, 2001 é uma experiência subjetiva, um filme mais para se sentir do que para se entender | Mila Ramos
