2001: A Space Odyssey
Saturday, January 15, 2011, 4:00 p.m.
New 70mm restored print by Warner Bros.Dir. Stanley Kubrick. 1968, 141 mins.
As brilliantly engineered as the space program itself, Kubrick’s mysterious and profound epic—“the ultimate trip”—is about nothing less than the beauty and banality of civilization, blending cool satire, an elaborate vision of the future, and passages of avant-garde cinematic inventiveness.
