Re: Rename The Motion Picture
I think 2001 is more a movie for people who want an immersive sensory and perceptual experience more than they want a narrative.
The narrative is there, it's just presented nonverbally. I believe that much of the film concerns itself with relations among archetypes, rather than characters per se.
