A story about this — 1 year ago
Pffff. I’d never gotten through this without the ability to fast-forward. I can’t rate it “not worth watching” though. I would rate it “not worth watching the entire thing”. Some of the visuals are really, really good. Made me wish Kubrick was a music video director (he’d be limited to about 3 minutes too!). And (after a looong time) the HAL bit made me sit up and pay attention again – now there’s an interesting plot line. And then there was that blasted monolith again (which I’d forgotten all about by that time) and Kubrick started filming a lavalamp or something and I was left in bewilderment. The End.
I never got Lynch either so if he floats your boat, go for it!
