To make it more masterful, the cinematography is the other ground-breaking feature of 2001 and successfully raises its status. The shots and photography were used as a technique by the director to implicate the underlying themes of space travel, artificial intelligence and evolution. My impression of this film is that it really engages with the viewers to understand what is happening and I feel each person who watches this film will construct a different improbable theory.
This is one of those trippiest movies that you need to revisit to fully understand the story in its four acts and what makes this film so significant from the rest is that each time you watch it, you take away a new understanding or idea that you originally did not consider. 2001 is a must-see novelty and if you haven't seen it, I would recommend you watch it.
