Today I experienced in 70mm film format the epic classic..
2001: A Space Odyssey
Last Saturday I moved to Tempe, Arizona and before that I already have my ticket for this screening because is a one of a lifetime event. Almost a religious experience.
I already have seen this film before. Also I have it in my collection…
…but trust me, watching a film in cinemas is not the same that in your TV or your computer. Trust me!
You feel immerse since the beginning. Since everything is black and you start listening the galactic score that set the atmosphere in just a second. I loved it.
Followed by the opening of Richard Strauss Sprach Zarathustra. Ghosebumps!
You also hear the film projector rolling like the old times. What a nostalgic feeling, so lovely.
You also have the intermission. A moment that sometimes we need in long movies because you don’t want to miss a second to go to the bathroom.
The film at the end receive a round of applause. This masterpiece still provoking and inspiring generations. Stanley Kubrick delivered was is rarely to see in some films todays a pure cinematic experience. Not everyone can do it. Only masters can.
For some reason every time I see a Kubrick film I feel smarter. His film stays in your mind forever. The ending of this film in theaters was insane, stills mind-blowing , WOW!
If you’re in Arizona, If you’re in any state , check your nearest screening of this masterpiece and blow your senses away.
The film was beautifully restore thanks to Christopher Nolan.
Sorry Puerto Rico , quisíera que tuvieran esta experiencia 😦
