Stanley Kubrick’s iconic masterpiece is speculative sci-fi on a truly grand scale; covering the entire history of man, the film dares to posit what might be the next evolutionary leap for our species. A monolith, unknowable and of alien origin, is present at key moments in man’s development; from the first discovery of tools to interplanetary space travel and beyond, it acts as a sentinel to our progress.
With its inspired use of classical music,astonishing special effects, designed by Douglas Trumbull (Silent Running), and overwhelming sense of awe
and wonder, 2001 is more aligned to philosophical inquiry than conventional cinema.
