Favorite daily cinematic shots: 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968, Stanley Kubrick) 🎥
For my ‘Favorite daily cinematic shot’ post, I was trying desperately to pick just one shot to use from 2001: A Space Odyssey. This scene though is so incredibly shot and made (every the rest of the entire film) that I’m doing something a bit different for a ‘Favorite daily cinematic shot’ post so I put a collage up for just ONE of my all-time favorite scenes from Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. There’s something about this film that leaves me in awe every time. The first time seeing this scene had me on edge (like the breathtaking, jaw-dropping Stargate sequence that comes in right after this scene) of my seat. The use of no music and leaving the silence to be a device of building tension and suspense was executed beautifully by Kubrick.
