A couple of weeks ago, Michele and I went to the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. The American Cinematheque was screening Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey in its original 70mm film print. I have seen 2001 many times, and it is in fact one of my absolute favorite films, but I had not seen it in many, many years. And I had never seen it in a theater, and certainly not like this. It had been long enough ago last time that I had forgotten some key things. Mainly that every scene was absolutely gorgeous, the soundtrack incredible, the details all so perfectly designed. Its a masterpiece. Its actually hard to believe this came out a year or so before the first manned moon landing. Anyway. Then last week Arthur C. Clarke died. So go watch this film again in tribute.
