[ATTENTION: This review reveals content of the movie.]
A rare chance it is to revisit this majestic cinema classic on the big screen. I was 15 when I was first marveled by this film shown in «Cinerama». It was like the future was it front me urging the young man I was to proceed into it wholeheartedly. It was beautiful. It was a dream. The effects are so realistic especially in these times of CGI. We rightly wonder how Kubrick managed this feat. The ending was a little disappointing for me as a kid and it still is. In fact, in this viewing I asked myself, why Bowman after surviving HAL and having the whole resources of Discovery at his disposal, he didn’t simply return to Earth instead of diving head first in eternity? Of course the dramatic effect would have been lessened but it would have been more realistic. Survival outweighs curiosity in my opinion. But this is a dream and it is well as such. I have seen this film uncounted times and also have it on DVD, but I must admit that nothing beats it on the big screen. A must see, again and again.
