SO, I just finished watching "2001: A Space Odyssey" with my good mate, David Linaburg. It was a fantastical display of lights, an intensely subtle wash of philosophical silent dialogue, a subconscious squeeze in slow moving pictures... and basically an all around stunning feature. I feel very inadequate to try and write about it or to give any sort of summary, but I felt compelled to try.
I actually went on a quick info-binge to stifle a bit of curiousity of the success and impact of the film. I came across this lass's blog post from 2009 in which she quotes Mr. Kubrick:
Kubrick told the New York Times,

- via Sophie Ward's "Paper Castle Press"
I HIGHLY recommend it.
ps. Does this have anything to with this?
