5.0 out of 5 stars Still a truly work of art, January 31, 2006
This review is from: 2001 - A Space Odyssey (DVD)
Kubrick really was one in a billion. This movie is 38 years old and still so challenging and so actual. It makes the cientific treatment of Arthur Clarke in the book looks so trivial. Don't get me wrong, I like the book either, but Kubrick was a visionary. This movie could never gain a better treatment, even if someone decided to remake it with modern technology, witch I personally believe that would ruin all the beauty of the movie.

This is one of these movies in witch seeing is better than trying to explain to non viewers. For those interested in seeing this masterpiece or for those who already saw the movie, check out [...] to get some questions answered.

This DVD have nothing special on the extras, just the trailer and some special information. I believe that this could have a better treatment, once we are talking about a Kubrick's classic masterpiece. Well, even without some extra material, this movie is still essential to those who can spend some time putting your brains in action. It have a very slow rhythm, it's not a movie to see action, to entertain with non-stop action pack and nonsense SFX, it's a movie to admire, to think, to reflect. If you can do that, then you'll be rewarded with a true and moving message hidden behind the brilliant photograph and the intense climax.
