2001: A Space Odyssey
Dir. Stanley Kubrick. 1968, 141 mins, plus intermission. DCP. With Keir Dullea. Kubrick’s mysterious and profound science-fiction epic remains—in the words of its tagline—“the ultimate trip.” Many of its sequences—from the spellbinding dawn of man to the spaceship ballet set to Strauss to the deadly Jupiter mission manned by HAL 9000 to the final Stargate mind-blower—are undeniable classics. With just eighteen minutes of dialogue, this is a sight-and-sound experience that simply can’t be properly appreciated anywhere other than on a big screen.
