Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is considered by many as one of the most beautiful and transcendent — if not flawless — films of all time. Deeply cerebral and photogenic, Kubrick’s 1968 oeuvre is utterly mesmerizing on many levels. (If I say too much, I might spoil the film’s beauty; so please check it out if you still haven’t.)
One of my most favorite moments in 2001: A Space Odyssey is its ending, which is mindf*ck at its most orgasmic. I’ve always thought that Kubrick’s film is two films in one; you just have to watch it again right after your first viewing.
