EDIT: lol, I just looked at my review of 2001, which describes the film thusly: "Kubrick's interstellar mindfuck"
I was confused because you said you loved the ending even though it was a total mindfuck, the "even though" sort of implying something in another direction from "loved the ending". So, and very well.
