This was a really enjoyable edit. The editors definitely accomplished their intention, which was to reduce the tone poem elements and make a lean cut of 2001 which retains the narrative of the original. I'm really surprised they were able to get it as short as they did while not sacrificing much in the way of narrative. I definitely missed a lot that was cut but that's because I love the long, slow burn of the original. This is a really cool alternate way to view the film and I would recommend this to others.
