2001 was… interesting. I didn’t understand any of it. It seemed like two or maybe more plot lines tied together. I’ve always wanted to know where “Hal” came from, too, but I was somewhat disappointed that this was how the movie ended up. The movie left me confused completely, and i asked myself what did i just watch. The most enjoyable part for me was the end where the song came in an the giant baby floated next to Earth. I found it hilarious. In all, the movie was just a little too artistic. It was like trying to completely understand abstract art.
