2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968)
FILM

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) is a science-fiction film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick about a voyage to Jupiter with the sentient computer HAL after the discovery of a mysterious black monolith affecting human evolution.

What Karthik says: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) is a profound and ambitious science-fiction film about the journey of mankind from the chaotic period of prehistoric hominids to the technologically advanced era of space travel. Humanity sets off on a quest to Jupiter after discovering a mysterious monolith buried beneath the Lunar Surface.

The film is masterfully directed by Stanley Kubrick, who with this film established himself as one of the greatest filmmakers of our time. It is quite unbelievable that this extraordinary level of visual quality was achieved in 1968. It is a poetic and philosophical journey to the infinite and beyond, the kind of film that really creates a deep level of involvement with the audience.

Dealing with themes of existentialism, human evolution, technology, artificial intelligence and extraterrestrial life, the film holds up a mirror to the audience and creates space for interpretations, which is what beautiful art is supposed to do.  It is truly one of the greatest science fiction films of all time. 2001: A Space Odyssey is a monolith in the world of cinema.
