2001 - A Space Odyssey


2001 a space odyssey

Directed in masterly style by Stanley Kubrick in 1968, 2001 - A Space Odyssey is 142 minutes of unadulterated visual magic. The film aims to communicate on a subconscious level, appealing to feelings more than the intellect. And it's astounding!

'With the whole screen glittering in an ever-changing pattern of diagrams and equations from instrument panels and monitor screens, a ballet of spacecraft performing lazy orbits in the sky to the strains of the Blue Danube Waltz, and its astronauts wrapped up like jelly-babies for long-distance hibernation in blue mummy-cases, this really is a brave new world of the machines. As such, not to be missed.’ (Tom Milne, Observer 5 May 1968)
