Must-see for fans of 2001 or science fiction in general
2 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a real treat to see big-name directors (including Lucas, Spielberg, Pollack) and cinematographers sounding like star-struck fans. 2001 has been analyzed to death, but this documentary wisely steps back and puts the film in an almost historical perspective, as these cinema pros talk about both their initial jaw-drop reactions to the film in 1968, and then discuss its influence on everything that came later.

Extremely well-selected clips and images are beautifully edited into a satisfying whole. If you love the movie, you have to see this doc. And younger film fans who may not understand what the fuss was (and still is) all about will gain terrific insight.
