Isn't it time UG has a thread for the best movie ever? Kubrick was a genius with a ton of symbolism and double meanings in his movies, and this is a good example of that as well as an amazing piece of art.

Discuss.

We have a thread for films in general. I think that covers this. Incredible film nonetheless. My personal Kubrickian preference falls towards A Clockwork Orange and Doctor Strangelove but 2001 is without a doubt incredible.

It was a really good movie about robots taking over the world and then shit hit the fan for the last 30 minutes with the LSD picturescape.

It's one of those movies where you have to watch it at least twice to catch all the symbolism.

inb4 Film Thread haters come here

I personally love it. One of my favorites. Love the soundtrack, love the camera work, love the super intro scene, and I love how long and silent and "boring" it is because it fits in with the theme of space and all that.

Plus the Hal 9000 part is creepy as ****. I fell asleep watching this movie one night and I woke up at the part where Hal is being all creepy as ****. I was creeped out as ****.

very much this. I love the slowness of it, gives me time to think about it all, and it seriously looks like space, some awesome special effects for 1968

I did it once. He didn't get it and thought I was weird.

I can live with that.

it has to be a right of passage for Daves.


So what does that mean has to happen to Franks?

It was a pretentious, contrived wank that Kubrick shit out like all of his movies. It's not deep, it doesn't even have any meaning. ****ing apes, oh ****ing wow! He must be a genious, that much bullshit and meaningless ramble must have some super intellectual, well though out meaning!

I think sitting back and taking in the aesthetic of the movie yields a lot more than looking for double meanings and treating any symbolism like it's a scavenger hunt.

If you don't quite understand how mainstream movies can also be serious high art, 2001 drives the point home. Every sound, every image, and every word is completely controlled toward one draaaaaaawn out effect: There has never been a better atmospheric sense of outer space in a movie.

It sure as hell wasn't a ramble, everything in that film added up to the exact same end.

I was just kidding a bit. It definitely is great movie, I know that it is mainly visuals and the visuals are great. One of the most well shot movies I've ever seen.

Sure sure...

It's a strange movie. I don't think I would watch it again, the second time will probably just be extremely boring, since I already felt the whole slowness and quietness of it once.

I marvel at JUST how long ago that movie came out. And how time hasn't hurt it one bit. The beautiful shots of space are more compelling and even more realistic than ANYTHING done on a computer...
