2001: A Space Odyssey

Dir. Stanley Kubrick. UK/USA, 1968. 2h 30m. Starring Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester, Daniel Richter, Leonard Rossiter, Margaret Tyzack, Robert Beatty.

The 50th-anniversary re-release one of cinema's greatest sci-fi's, which pushed the limits of narrative and special effects toward a meditation on technology and humanity. Based on Arthur C. Clarke's story The Sentinel, Stanley Kubrick's landmark 1968 epic is a mind-bending intergalactic symphony.

’It's an overpowering experience, awe-inspiringly photographed by Geoffrey Unsworth, groundbreakingly enhanced by Douglas Trumbull.’ ★★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer

'Kubrick's spaceships are perhaps little more than Airfix models, but he makes them majestic, even awesome in the proper sense of the word.’ ★★★★★ Kate Muir, The Times
