ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey

For as great as the HAL 9000 part of this legendary film might be I find myself always drawn towards the dawn of man sequence for it's stark colors, freakish sound and for it's portrayal of a past that feels so raw and oddly surreal. This is a film that's pointless to review. I could give it 0 stars and yet it won't stop anyone from watching. It's too iconic, original and influential to avoid watching. So....Watch it
