The joy of watching movies, and in particular, exceptional movies, is the process of experiencing the greatness: the greatness of the actors, the plot, the production, and the director. When sitting in a cinema chair against a giant screen and watching a masterpiece, suddenly everything starts to fade and you become the participant of the action.
This level of “immersiveness” can be found with many directors. But we’re not here to list all of them and do a comprehensive analysis of their portfolios. We’re here to talk about one legendary director and his legendary work - Stanley Kubrick and 2001: A Space Odyssey. And we’re even going to attempt to catch some grey areas found within the plot.
Before I even try to somehow explain the magnitude of this movie, I need to quickly admit one thing: when I come across a work of the Sci & Fi genre, whether it’s in movies, books, or games, I immediately become the most subjective person in the world, excessively enjoying every little detail that would somehow be associated with physics, space travel, and technology.
And the same level of subjectiveness struck me when I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey. To get the context of why this movie is a masterpiece, we need to keep in mind that it was made back in 1968, where there was no Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) or other types of visual effects. And when you actually see the scenes of space travel and solar system, you’ll be astounded by the level of detail and visual sophistication. Personally, I would never think that this movie was made that long ago and involved no CGI whatsoever.
