A mind-bending sci-fi symphony, Stanley Kubrick’s landmark 1968 epic pushed the limits of narrative and special effects toward a meditation on technology and humanity.
To begin his voyage into the future, Kubrick visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millenia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever conceived) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted realms of space, perhaps even into immortality. With assistance from special-effects expert Douglas Trumbull, Kubrick spent over two years meticulously creating the most “realistic” depictions of outer space ever seen, greatly advancing cinematic technology for a story expressing grave doubts about technology itself. Despite some initial critical reservations that it was too long and too dull, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY became one of the most popular films of 1968, underlining the generation gap between young moviegoers who wanted to see something new and challenging and oldsters who “didn’t get it.” Let the awe and mystery of a journey unlike any other begin…
Only a few films are transcendent, and work upon our minds and imaginations like music or prayer or a vast belittling landscape…Alone among science-fiction movies, 2001 is not concerned with thrilling us, but with inspiring our awe.
– ROGER EBERT
“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.
– NEW YORKER
Still the grandest of all science-fiction movies.
– ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
Beloved for many different reasons, including its scrupulous scientific accuracy, its vast reach from “The Dawn of Man” to the next stage of human evolution, its unrivaled integration of musical and visual composition, its daring paucity of dialogue and washes of silence, its astonishingly creative psychedelic sequence and its still-gorgeous pre-digital special effects.
A cold, majestic motion picture, a movie that seeks to remind us of the vastness of space and our relatively insignificant place in it.
You can watch 2001 as a visual journey with nary a thought for what’s under the surface or you can plunge into this vortex of interpretations. The great thing about 2001 is that either approach works fine. That’s why it endures.
