Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: It was a freshening attitude then, though its long-term effects haven't been all to the good.
- Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Tuesday, May 8, 2007
Fresh: You can watch 2001 as a visual journey with nary a thought for what's under the surface or you can plunge into this vortex of interpretations. The great thing about 2001 is that either approach works fine. That's why it endures.
- Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Friday, November 2, 2001
Fresh: For all the essential coldness of Kubrick's vision, it demands attention as superior sci-fi, simply because it's more concerned with ideas than with Boy's Own-style pyrotechnics.
- Geoff Andrew, Time Out, Saturday, June 24, 2006
One of the greatest movies of all time. This movie has so many deep meaning and messages and is just amazing. A very complex movie that nobody will ever figure out completely which is why it's so great along with the story and special affects are amazing too. Grade: A

Beter defined as an experience more than just a movie, this is as groundbreaking as they come. Still looks incredible; you have to remember this was made a year before man ever left Earth's orbit. Far more baffling and terrifying than you might recall if you saw it many moons ago, HAL is both terrifying and sadly understandable, especially when you consider he is created by man for man. Not one I watch often, simply because of it's style, this is true cinema. If you have never seen 2001, you know nothing of cinema. Nuff said.

Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" is a visual feast for the eyes and a maddening study of humanity and the beyond for the brain. So insanely influential in it's storytelling, cinematography, acting and science fiction it was ripped off from the 70s to now.
