2001
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
March 9, 2017

A mind-bending sci-fi symphony, Stanley Kubrick's landmark 1968 epic, 2001: A Space Odyssey, pushed the limits of narrative and special effects toward a meditation on technology and humanity. Based on Arthur C. Clarke's story “The Sentinel,” Kubrick and Clarke's screenplay is structured in four movements. 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.
