An imposing black structure provides a connection between the past and the future in this enigmatic adaptation of a short story 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.

"A great rapturous puzzle, a voyage through outer and inner space and -- in the hippie argot of 1968 -- "the ultimate trip," Stanley Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey' is a masterpiece that can still leave you dizzy with wonder.
"As much as any movie ever made, this visionary science fiction tale of space travel and first contact with extraterrestrial life is a spellbinding experience. Watching it, you can feel immersed in its landscapes, locked in its sterile space-ship interiors or lost in the immense dark skies through which Kubrick's vast space vessels ceremoniously move.
"Looking at '2001' today, we can see where its scientific predictions went awry (common space travel, videophones). We can also see where it was prescient (the computer age, space detente). But it matters little. Kubrick's great film both terrifies you with its nightmarish take on the traps of technology and inspires you with its vision of human potential and the universe around us.
"It is an extraordinary, obsessive, beautiful work of art; like that Richard Strauss signature theme, it works best when you let it overwhelm you." -- Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
