2001: A Space Odyssey can be interpreted about a million different ways. That's a big part of its appeal. But have you ever felt… hungry while watching it? That's because the movie is actually about food. Look closely, and you'll see it too!
One reason why director Stanley Kubrick is a legend is because of his beautiful shots, which feature symmetrical framing, or one-point-perspective — which means that all lines lead to a single point in the distance.
