“One of the most groundbreaking masterpieces in movie history”
A mysterious monolith is present for human technological evolution, from battling prehistoric apes to 2001, when astronaut Bowman gets into trouble with computer HAL. In the time between these two eras, humans seem to have been at a psychological standstill.
After fifty years, Stanley Kubrick’s timeless classic 2001: A Space Odyssey returns to the silver screen. In 2018 this philosophical science fiction film is considered to be one of the most groundbreaking masterpieces in movie history. Several years ago this movie ranked second on the prestigious “Sight & Sounds Directors’ Poll list” of ‘greatest films of all time’.
With his 2001: A Space Odyssey Kubrick shook the foundations of the narrative formulas of great Hollywood films, yanked futuristic visual effects into the present and forged a permanent association between the music of Strauss’s ‘Also sprach Zarathustra’ and the void of the universe. This combination turns a visit to the cinema into an experience beyond compare!
