Overview
2001 is "a milestone film" (Leonard Maltin), a spectacular movie that grows more wondrous with each viewing. Awesome in scope, this "imaginatively staggering [and] uniquely poetic piece of science-fiction" (The New Yorker) explores the mysteries of interplanetary space…and of human destiny. The entire film is a stunning, sensuous marvel – a cinematic experience like no other before or since.

As producer, director and co-writer of the screenplay (with Arthur C. Clarke), Stanley Kubrick brought complex ideas to the screen with astounding immediacy through dazzling special effects that won a much-deserved Academy Award™. Moving from the prehistoric birth of intelligence to the emergence of man as pure thought, 2001 is a remarkable achievement – "a quantum leap in quality over any sci-fi film ever made" (Newsweek).
