I’ve always counted myself a fan of 2001: A Space Odyssey. I first saw it on the big screen when I was about ten. I loved it.
I have, of course, seen it on the small screen many times since.
My local arthouse cinema - and I mean a fifteen walk from my house - is currently screening a “glorious 70mm print”. When I first saw it advertised, my immediate reaction was “Ooh - I have to go and see that”.
This evening is my only chance. Yet, for some reason, I find myself thinking… nah. It’s long and dull, isn’t it? That whole 20 minute “through the Stargate” sequence - what’s the point? Will I fall asleep?
But part of me considers this a must-see.
What say you? Would you go?
