I grew up watching a lot of classic films especially Kubrick's works even as a kid I loved the visuals. When I watched 2001: A Space Odyssey the first time I thought it was brilliant but watching it now, I feel like the movie isn't as great as I originally thought it was. I've re watched the film a lot lately and for some reason I'm starting to think the movie is a bit overrated. I think the film itself is good don't get me wrong, I just feel like some people/critics tend to read way too deep into the movie that they start to give meaning to things that aren't supposed to be anything. I know good movies tend to leave it up to audience and fill in the holes for their own amusement but I also think that putting some sort of imagery and idea in a film and just leaving out in a blank isn't a good way to go also.
