2001: A Space Odyssey

Stanley Kubrick Reino Unido, 1968

Richmond Hill's rating of the film 2001: Una odisea del espacio

Existentialism in excelsis. Ravishing, cryptic and engrossing in turns, this is commercial cinema as its finest with an extraordinary synthesis of cerebalism, sound and visual imagery (if not story telling in its conventional form). A rare multi-headed hydra that repays repeated viewing and never quite reveals all (thank goodness).
