Synopsis

2001: the more you watch it, the more you see in it. Light years ahead of its time. 2001 is a spectacular movie that grows even more wondrous as time passes. Stanley Kubrick's 1968 masterpiece has an awesome scope - it reaches the outer limits of interplanetary space and penetrates man's inner destiny. "A uniquely poetic piece if science-fiction." said the New Yorker. "hypnotically entertaining: technically and imaginatively it is staggering," Newsweek said. "Kubrick's special effects border on the miraculous - a quantum leap in quality over any sci-fi film ever made." As producer, director and co-writer of the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke, Kubrick brought complex ideas to the screen with astounding immediacy through spectacular special effects. Inspired by Clarke's epic book, The Sentinel, 2001 moves from the pre-historic birth of intelligence to the emergence of man as pure thought, somewhere in the future. Director of photography Geoffrey Unsworth brings you the universe, while the stately music of Richard Strauss makes the galaxies sing. The entire film is a stunning, sensuous marvel - a brilliant achievement for Kubrick.
