The film seamlessly travels from story to story and literally takes the audience on a trip through time and space. I think my personal favorite scene in the film is the one of the moon when the scientists are viewing the monolith.
There's no warmth here, and I find that can be a feature of several Kubrick films. They're often clinical looks at a certain topic, leading to a complete lack of emotion. Aside from the good things, however, it's rather self-indulgent.
