Kubrick explains the ending of 2001: A Space Odyssey in rare video clip

"I’ve tried to avoid doing this ever since the picture came out. When you just say the ideas they sound foolish, whereas if they’re dramatized one feels it, but I’ll try."

    I hadn't heard that explanation before. It makes sense, but doesn't destroy the mystery of the aliens at all.

    I saw 2001 during its original release, but I was just a kid. The early scenes with the apes got too intense, and I had to go to the lobby until that section was over

    Such a powerful and poetic movie. It will always be in my top 5 list.

    Time to watch it again.
