I watched it again not too many years ago, expecting thirty-some-odd years to have changed my perspective, but my reaction remained much the same.
I never said it wasn't a great movie; It is, without a doubt. But for me personally,
the whole tunnel of light, the old man on the bed, and the other self-consciously absurd images at the end of the movie
are just Stanley Kubrick masturbating on 70mm celluloid. Obviously, other people have differing opinions.
You know what they say about opinions...

Ignorance is bliss, denial is divine, and willful ignorance is a religious experience.

Share the love.
