Published on

2001: A Space Odyssey is a 1968 sci-fi movie directed by Stanley Kubrick (A Clockwork Orange). Starring Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood and William Sylvester.


A four-million-year-old black monolith is discovered on the moon, and the government (while hiding the situation from the public) sends a team of scientists on a fact-finding mission. Eighteen months later, another team is sent to Jupiter in a ship controlled by the perfect HAL 9000 computer to further investigate the giant object–but on this trip, something goes terribly wrong.

Movie Reviews

“Most movies are about characters with a goal in mind (…) ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ is not about a goal but about a quest, a need (…) Rating: ???? (out of 4)” Roger Ebert: rogerebert.com 

“Its special effects are used so seamlessly as part of an overall artistic strategy that (…) they don’t even register as such (…) The poetry is as hard-edged and full of wonder as ever” Jonathan Rosenbaum: Chicago Reader 

“It’s through the film’s silent, deliberate hypnosis that it achieves its ballet-like majesty.(…) Rating: ???? (out of 4)” Rob Humanick: Slant
