He was already a positive thing in this world with Memento.

Anyway, I've been following this restoration process and I'm glad it's finally released. I hope there will be some screening in Paris in actual 70mm: I've been willing to rewatch 2001 for a couple of years and it would be the perfect occasion.

By the way, I recently discovered the YouTube channel Cinema Tyler. He has insightful and in depth videos on many movies and filmmakers, including Lawrence of Arabia, lots of Hitchock ones, and many, many Kubrick ones. Since we're on the 2001 thread, I highly suggest anyone interested in this movie to watch his series on the topic:

I just got my tickets! On thursday, I'll see the restaured 70mm version in Paris.


In case there are french readers on this board, it plays at the Arlequin for a week, 3 screenings a day, starting wednesday.

Let us know how it turns out (e.g. Is there one Monolith, or many? Also, is Nolan right about Bowman and the "Daisy" scene?). Don't worry about spoilers--spoil away!

So, the experience was glorious, of course. My main grief is that the theater DIDN'T play along with the intermission (there is an "intermission" screen, but they didn't turn on the lights, we just waited 1 minute, then they went to a black screen with the 2-3min music piece that tells you the movie is going to start again soon). Needless to say, I was livid: the whole point of the Nolan "unrestauration" was to provide us with the actual 1968 theatrical experience so please give us the intermission that's part of it.

1 - I don't know how many monoliths there actually are, but with each viewing I'm more and more convinced the question isn't relevant at all. The monolith(s) is an alegory of what makes us human... is it sent by God, by Aliens or just found inside ourselves? Every viewer has to decide for himself since I think the movie is interested in what comes after that question. To me, the movie is about mankind and what defines it rather than what created it. The monolith(s) means "let's keep that part in the dark, now what?". Of course, the mysteriousness and the holly nature of the monolith attracts the attention of the viewer, and that's what makes it a greatly poetic and gracious statement instead of a bland "I don't know, bro". Terrific move, Mr Kubrick.

2 - I don't think Nolan is right about the Daisy scene. It seemed to me Bowman was almost crying in that scene. I wouldn't be too assertive though. Still, although the "nice guy Bowman" theory gives us a more emotional scene, the aggression theory plays better in themes of 2001: none of the other killers in the film feel compassion for their victim. If you put aside the panther (or whatever big cat it is) at the beginning, murder seems like what makes us humans. So I think the Nolan theory here is really interesting, but I still didn't read aggression in Bowman's actions.

Of course, if you have ONE movie to watch on the big screen in your lifetime, it should be 2001. Then Leone.

You wanted a re-fill on your popcorn?

Intermissions are a practical necessity for me now. I really need to hit the john mid-way through a long film. No way can I hold it for 3 hours.

I wanted to talk about the film and the experience half way through it! And remove the fly that had been resting on the right side of the lens for the past 20min (hopefully someone did it).

Just saw this one in the cinema. Not 70mm tho, no such luck, but I'll take what I can. Loved the experience, the photographic effects scene near the end is even more mindblowing than watching it at home. The intermission was an actual intermission, as it should be (another cinema in my city never has intermissions, regardless of length). Thought provoking movie. I agree that Bowman was almost crying during the Daisy scene, at least that's what it looked and felt like to me.

The more I think of it: for a movie that is so openly Nietzschean and quotes Also sprach Zarathustra all along, the fact that Bowman has to overcome his compassion is quite crucial. Hence the need for his tears. He needs to feel compassion in order to overcome it and become the Ubermench.

He already leaves behind some of his moral values when releasing/abandoning the corps of his colleague in outer space to (re)enter Discovery One and experiences a first small rebirth before that big murder scene. Needless to say, those moral values are what almost had killed him moments before.
