2001 is one of the greatest films of all time. Period. Its visual effects captivate, hypnotize, and, in Beyond the Infinite, convey daring impressions of something beyond understanding. My father first showed me this film when I was 12, saying to me it was a "Thinking Man's movie". I can't agree more, and have continually revisited it since then. Cerebral. Beautiful. Everything a movie should be.
GREATEST FILM EVER MADE. That sums up the delight this movie is, not in an emotional way but a psychological, scientific, humane and lastly artistic way. This is the 'TRUE' power of cinema. Only one man got it, others (respectfully)couldn't achieve the greatness that was destined for Kubrick. Not his 'BEST' work but definitely his 'GREATEST'-if you could comprehend its meaning. Respectfully i wish to not review it.
