both gatos and neglify perfectly summed my feelings towards this edit, this is indeed a leaner take on 2001 while managing to retain the essence that made 2001 one of the great films of all time. it's been a while since i've seen the original 2001 film and only two scenes stood out from being cut (the air hostess and the birthday message scene) they are a number of times the fade to black transitions is used though i couldn't say if this is what the editors did or if it was in the original cut.

in summary this edit is well worth checking out while it may not be an edit that will replace your original copy of 2001 it serves as a strong alternative and i'll be interested in any future edits you guys work on.
