2001: A Space Odyssey
Stanley Kubrick’s monumental journey through space and time remains the ultimate sci-fi head trip, a jaw-dropping and mind-bending blend of complex ideas about humanity and technology, stunning cinematography, expert use of classical music, and pioneering Douglas Trumbull effects. From the monolithic dawn of man through the spectacularly psychedelic star gate sequence and beyond, not a single frame is wasted in creating the filmmaker’s ultimate vision of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
“Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is some sort of great film, and an unforgettable endeavor. Technically and imaginatively, what he put into it is staggering.” – Penelope Gilliatt, New Yorker
“The genius is not in how much Stanley Kubrick does in 2001: A Space Odyssey, but in how little. This is the work of an artist so sublimely confident that he doesn’t include a single shot simply to keep our attention. He reduces each scene to its essence, and leaves it on screen long enough for us to contemplate it, to inhabit it in our imaginations. Alone among science-fiction movies, 2001 is not concerned with thrilling us, but with inspiring our awe.” – Roger Ebert
