Great movie if you have a brain and like to use it,
This review is from: 2001: A Space Odyssey [VHS] (VHS Tape)
2001 is one of the best movies out there. Yes it is slow. Yes the dialogue takes up only a fraction of the entire movie. The reason why this movie is so good is because it makes you think- it's a lot like reading a book. There's a lot of symbolism and meaning, and if all you're looking for is plot, you'll be sorely disappointed. If you don't like to think, then this movie is not for you.
If the movie confuses you, read the book and then try watching it again.
