"Man has shrunk space, but Kubrick has expanded the cinema."—Alexander Walker, London Evening Standard

"2001 is not concerned with thrilling us, but with inspiring our awe."—Roger Ebert, RogerEbert.com

"Like an abstract painting, with elements of marvel as well as madness, demonstrating that filmmaking doesn't have to be dedicated to telling a linear story."—Mike Massie, Gone With the Twins

Stanley Kubrick redefined the limits of filmmaking in his classic science fiction masterpiece, a contemplation on the nature of humanity. An imposing black structure provides a connection between the past and the future in this enigmatic adaptation of The Sentinel by revered sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke. When Dr. Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and other astronauts are sent on a mysterious mission, their ship's computer system, HAL, begins to display increasingly strange behavior, leading up to a tense showdown between man and machine that results in a mind-bending trek through space and time.
