*Film beings at dusk.
My late film critic counterpart, Jeff Michael Vice, revered Stanley Kubrick’s vision of evolution, technology, and philosophy as one of the greatest movies of all-time, and I would be a fool to disagree.
Forty-seven years ago, Kubrick forced audiences to look three decades into the future and question what life would be like and what it means to be human as you witness space travel at its finest. Kubrick’s awe-inspiring visuals still leave me in a state of wonderment and I still quote HAL 9000 at every given chance in Douglas Rain’s terrifying monotone voice. The running time may appear daunting at first, but trust me, you will be reminiscing about this cinematic experience for much longer.
