2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

I feel completely obliged to give this 5 stars because of how cold the film is and how stripped down it is, but despite this, it is one of the most engaging films I've ever seen. In 2001, you make the movie; it acts as a catalyst for a nirvana. The visuals are one with the music and maybe more important, as the music plays before any visuals appear and the music is by itself long after the credits have rolled. It's almost like the magnificent compositions themselves were the screenplay and to have such magnificent visuals accompanying them is the icing on the cake.
