A very nice retro review, thank you -- you helpfully called attention to the film's successes without heaping undue praise on it.

Agreed; a good, balanced review of a film that occupies a strange place in the genre's cinematic history-and the title of which has made it oddly timely.

I totally agree. I haven't seen the movie in a while, but from what I remember--and I'm about to lapse into a probably not inappropriate Rapture metaphor--it was about those of us left behind, trying to make sense of what had happened in 2001. Bowman went off into a condition that, almost by definition, humanity could not understand. I'd have been disappointed it they'd tried.

The Future is Now! is one of those quest-for-enlightenment inspirational films that comes along every few years in which the viewer's attention is torn between the breezy philosophical chat and a sense of awe at the filmmakers' travel budget.
