4. I love that film!

It is a bit strange, but it is an astounding cinematic wonder.

Kubrick pushed the envelope and made the greatest SciFi film in history. He broke all the tropes.

* No sounds in outer space.
* Music score and cinema instead of dialog.
* Exhibiting the utter loneliness of space.
* Mind jarring visuals.
* Plus he just pushes so many buttons, without knowing which ones. He knew his film would have impact.

I can watch that film over an over again. It is an extraordinary achievement.
