Adrian's Review of 2001: A Space Odyssey
2001: A Space Odyssey(1968)
A science-fiction epic crafted of cinematic ingenuity, that is both thought-provoking and influential. Audiences may have difficulty maintaining attention due to it's excessive run time, overbearing (yet awespiring) special effects, a story-line that doesn't sew together it's gaping plot holes and a severe absence of character development. However, when observed at a contextual and artistic perspective it is an immersive cinematic experience that broadens the mind. A cinematic achievement in human history.
