2001: A Space Odyssey?

October 23, 2008

We just watched 2001: A Space Odyssey. I had never seen it before. Always kind of wanted to. It is a really famous film, and it got 4 stars, so it was sure to be good. But I have no idea what it was about!! I have never been so confused. Does anyone know?? I would really like some answers.

I even looked online to find some sort of explanation to it all, but the only thing I am sure of now is that Stanley Kubrick was a fruit.

  1. I was in the same boat as you. I always wanted to watch it. Then one day I did, and I realized that it was a spectacular movie that took a really long time to draw a question mark in my brain. It was a movie about a big black box. I think the big black box was the main character's mother, but I'm not positive.

  2. I have actually never seen the whole movie (I fell asleep when I tried to watch it), but it is one of Ian's all-time favorites. My brother Budge watched it about a year ago and had the same reaction that you, and many others have had. He wrote Ian an email about it. Ian ended up writing Budge a complete analysis of the movie, what he thought it meant, and why he found it so significant. I wouldn't presume to summarize it for you, but if you want, I could send you a copy.
