    It's visually stunning, especially since it was made in 1968, and the music is amazing but it's also irritatingly slow. I'm afraid I might not be sophisticated enough for this one. 3 years 7 months ago

    While I think the basic premise of the movie is fairly interesting, I have to agree with many of the other reviewers that I found the execution somewhat of a bore. Yes, it's visually a striking film, with Kubrick experimenting with special effects of the time. But beyond that, the story as a whole doesn't really give you much. I just don't understand why this movie is on so many "best of..." lists. Important and visually striking, yes. But I didn't think it was an interesting enough film to warrant all of the continued reverence that it seems to get. 5 years 4 months ago
