UPDATED: In the Battle of 1968, 2001: A Space Odyssey emerges victorious. I love Rosemary's Baby and had the opportunity to see a gorgeous print of the film at the Brattle this year - seeing on the big screen only enhanced the claustrophobic sense of paranoia that Roman Polanski is the master of. However, having just seen 2001 on 35mm again last week, I must say that the marketing folk weren't lying - it is indeed the ultimate trip. I'm holding a review I've written until the film is eliminated or wins, because I don't want it to come off like a campaign speech. But wow, what a picture.
