When it was originally released in 1968, audiences didn’t really know what the hell to think of 2001: A Space Odyssey. In fact, 250 critics walked out of the New York premiere, literally asking aloud, “What is this bullshit?”
Now, 2001 is regarded not just as a sci-fi masterpiece, but as one of the greatest films of all time. Yet, still, people find themselves wondering exactly what happened at the end of the movie, where Dr. David Bowman gets sucked into a Star Gate, trapped in a neoclassical French room then turned into a fetus known as the Star Child.
