Franz - I agree.  I watch it for the beauty (and the realization that it was made in 1968).  It actually relaxes me to watch this movie. The first 20 minutes do suck ass to me, but the remaining movie is a beautiful site.  I do understand when people say it is boring. It just depends on what you are into - and I am into stuff like this (though I have only seen it about 3 times all the way through).

It obviously reminds me of

I don't understand "2001" completely but I think that's the beauty of it. If I were to understand everything about a movie, I won't feel inclined to watch it again. The mystery keeps me coming back.

As for recommending it to friends, I mention it to them... but I never actually URGE them to watch it (they like "modern" movies). I learn to keep certain movies to myself because I do get tired of comments like "It's so boring" or (worse) "Nothing happened!"

I have to agree with Josh.  I love sci-fi, but have yet to get all the way through 2001: A Space Odyssey.  It is very boring.....I just don't understand. 09/10/2008

Haha, I guess I am one of those Idiots. I can't stand 2001. I just get so bored I can't watch it. I understand it is artsy, but to me I there are great movies that are not boring so why would I watch this one. An idea alone can only go so far. 

I do love Sci-fi films though, just not that one.

Hey there.

Have to admit I never tire of watching 2001, it is simply mesmerising. However, getting OTHER people to sit down and watch it is a nightmare. No one will give it the chance it deserves You always get idiots who right away insist on pointing out that the apes look like men in suits. I KNOW THEY DO, BECAUSE THEY ARE! JUST WATCH THE DAMN MASTERPIECE UNFOLDING BEFORE YOU. 
Fools...

Anyone else find this problem with 2001 specifically or with great (but long and sometimes a little oblique) films?
