5.0 out of 5 stars The Finest Vision Realised, 14 Oct 2004
This review is from: 2001: A Space Odyssey [1968] [DVD] (DVD)
It is now more than 35 years since Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke collaborated to make their epic masterpiece. Utilising such themes as evolution, the vastness of space, man versus technology and extra terrestrial intelligence these sci-fi experimentalists crafted a phenomenal achievement in motion pictures that is still light years ahead of its imitators today.
In an advanced future, a strange monolith is discovered on the moon and suggests that intelligent life once visited the Earth long ago before man existed. Thus begins our epic journey of discovery that takes us from the Earth to the planet Jupiter and ultimately beyond.
2001: A Space Odyssey is intelligent, thought-provoking cinema. It works on a level that most blockbuster-loving audiences of today would probably dismiss as slow and boring, but this film never intended to be a Star Wars - it has lots more to say. It successfully envisions the unlimited possibilites of existence itself and is a gift to us in its very own realisation.
So please, accept no substitutes - this is what the movies are about.
