Today marks the 50th anniversary of this little gem. What can I say about #2001
that hasn't already been said? This is not a movie, it's an experience. Very few modern films can match the technical marvels and narrative complexities that #stanleykubrick
so graciously unleashed onto the world in 1968. There's absolutely no denying the impact it has had on the film industry over the last 50 years. A master in the truest sense of the word, Stanley Kubrick indelibly altered Hollywood with his magnum opus. In an age when science fiction was regarded as little more than campy B-movie fare, Kubrick reignited the public's interest in the genre with his intricate take on evolution and space travel. But 2001 isn't just about that. Sure, it does an excellent job at offering an idea of where human beings came from and where they are going. It takes us on an astounding journey through time, beginning with man discovering the first tool to the creation of the most advanced tools possible. More than this, it wisely offers more questions than it has any right to answer. The questions it poses are so mind-numbing at times that they simply can't be answered, or maybe we just don't want to know the answers because comprehending the film's concepts is part of the experience. All I know is that 2001 is a treat for the eyes and the mind. It invites audiences to consider our origins and what we can still accomplish as something much greater than ourselves. 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the greatest and most important movies ever made. Few movies have been as daring, thought-provoking, frustrating, and prophetic. They may never be.
What do you guys think of 2001: A Space Odyssey?
