Awe-inspiring, audacious, confusing, compelling, disturbing, a visual tour de force and amazingly 40 years old. There is little more I can say about this movie as I would hate to try and suggest that I understand fully what is intended, but I do know that I find it impossible to look away from. In my humble opinion Hal_9000 is one of the most terrifying creations ever commited to screen. An absolute feast, fantasically realised, persistently influential and enduringly fascinating. A must see, don't miss out and I hope that this is finally the release that does this monument justice.
