This film is a work of genius; a truly terrifying portrayal of a highly probable distant future. The acting is superb, the music cannot be ignored, and like the other reviewer pointed out, the final lines of the film are highly memorable. However, there are those out there who may view this film as "boring". These are the same individuals who fail to realize that, before the sweeping changes in special effects brought about with Star Wars, science fiction was generally intelligent. So no, if you're looking for explosions, robots, and bright flashing lights, go someplace else. I shudder to think of what these people would think after watching Stanley Kubrick's 2001.
