Mon Nov 24

Both ‘Interstellar’ and ‘Gravity’ took us out of this world, but the reputation of Stanley Kubrick’s classic – now re-released – is safe. It’s not that ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ doesn’t look dated – it does, a bit – but it remains as intelligent and provocative as ever, bearing years of conceptual dreaming. Until today’s equivalent of novelist Arthur C Clarke commits a hefty chunk of time to envisioning the beginning of human civilisation, as well as the far future, there will be no new film to supplant it.

Though it was showered with praise for its technical achievements, ‘2001’ lingers more potently in the mind as a tall, black riddle: where are the new bones, the new tools, that will take us higher? Douglas Rain’s clammy voice work as Hal 9000, the murderous machine, remains one of Kubrick’s snazziest pieces of direction.

Nietzsche's philosophy filmed(man made God-HAL-in his own image )plus a retelling of the Odyssey(HAL=Cyclops,lunar monolith=Trojan Horse,etc)try Leonard Wheat's ''Kubrick's 2001;A Triple Allegory''(Scarecrow Press,2000) great in-depth study.

One of the most visually beautiful films ever made. Yes perhaps not a film with a particular story that will suit those cinema-goers who like to know what's going on, although there are those of us who just enjoy the medium, stunning sets and magnificent photography, I'd take this over Avitar anyday! One of the greatest movies ever.

In my opinion the greatest film ever made. A perfect fusion of stunning visuals, music, movement, sound, original narrative structure and enigmatic themes, but beyond everything it comes together to form the ultimate cinematic experience.

Truly the emperor's new film, glowing reviews for something no one really wants to watch. It is pretentious, stupid and dull beyond belief. I would sooner watch paint dry than watch this rubbish ever again.
