Holds the mantle as one of the most realistic science fiction movies out there and the one for the "thinking" man. I like how the story slowly reveals itself in the beginning through news and minimal of dialogue. HAL is one of the most memorable movie psychos on film and I love that the film make the ending a psychedelic mystery just like life itself.
One of the most beautiful films ever made. Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey breaks barriers in cinematography and storytelling scene by scene. Space has never felt so close and real as in 2001. No sci-fi film has yet to compete with it yet only take notes.
2001 is primarily a technical film. The film's greatest strength is in the details. 35 years later, I still can't believe how some of the shots were done. The film's only notable mistake was the optimism with which it predicted mankind's technological development. It is our shame that the year 2001 did not look like the film 2001, not Kubrick's.
I like some of kubrick films but i wasnt a hardcored fan untill i saw this one.. It blow my mind. MASTERPIECE ! The soundtrack, the journey through the cosmos, the cinematography ,the visuals: i cant believe, this film was shot before the man land on the moon.. !!! 2017 and This film didnt aged at all !
2001 is one of the defining films of the sci-fi genre. It begins with the dawn of man and then cuts to millions of years later, showing how far human technology has come. It shows off groundbreaking visual effects, which is a big part of what makes it a definitive sci-fi movie. One thing that really sets 2001 apart as a sci-fi film is that we never see the aliens who's existence is implied throughout the movie.
Essential cinema. Kubrick's magnificent creation stands the test of time regardless of its due date long past. The film's iconic stature cannot be diminished regardless of advances in technology and visual effects. The meticulous calculation in all aspects of the film's creation is evident throughout. A head trip for the ages still being discussed almost 50 years later. 'Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer true'
