2001: A Space Odyssey
BY yuefei superstar
The film takes the viewer through cinematography of indescribable beauty and brooding soundtracks which work hand in hand to create an atmospheric and surreal (I'll also add majestic and profound) journey through man's space, dealing with themes such as humanity, mystery, death, birth, and life along the way.
This film is... More pretty much asking to be rewatched, and hopefully from a second viewing I'll discover more about this (not lightly labelled) masterpiece.Hide

2001: A Space Odyssey remains the best sci-fi film ever made, thanks to revolutionary special effects, meticulously crafted sound design, a passion for the intimidating beauty of the unknown and a keen sense of adventure; despite making you feel like you had to be around at the time to fully absorb its genius and impact.
