By 1968 Stanley Kubrick had already tackled a slew of powerful topics including three anti-war films (Fear and Desire, Paths of Glory, Dr. Strangelove), a perfect noir thriller (The Killing), one of the most notorious and "unfilmable" novels of the 20th century (Lolita), and a Hollywood epic (Spartacus). Where else but the unknown was he to venture?

Adapting Arther C. Clarke's science fiction short story "The Sentinel", Kubrick expanded the scope of the work from a brief inquiry into the existence of life in the universe to a meditation about the development and advancement of intelligence. Beginning with the moment when apes begin cognitive thought and jumping to early lunar exploration, continuing with a manned journey to Jupiter and the development and understanding of non-linear time, 2001: A Space Odyssey tackles some of the most essential topics of humanity and nature.

With unparalleled special effects, 2001 is a film that needs to be seen on the big screen in all its glory.
