2001:A Space Odyssey. A movie released in 1969, set far in the future…2001, the true millenium. A year that is about to become (or has already become if you live on the other side of the earth) eleven years in the past!
And yet it's still one of the greatest cinematic experiences you can have. Stanley Kubrick was a master.
Watch it again in 2012. You'll be amazed how much more meaningful it becomes with time. And how many things you missed the first ten times you watched it (well, if you're like me that is).
Are we waiting for godot or waiting for Dave Bowman? Ah…that's the question. Or maybe we'd settle for the Pied Piper or Mr Tambourine Man?
Happy New Year.
