2001: A Space Odyssey (70mm)

Body

Screening from a glorious 70mm print.

Kubrick’s groundbreaking classic, undoubtedly the most influential science-fiction film of the '60s, is a spellbinding masterpiece that can still make you dizzy with wonder.

Based on the novella The Sentinel by Arthur C Clarke, the film quite literally changed our concept of space and spaceships, replacing the pencil-shaped rocketships with large constructions more commensurate with the vastness of deep space. Famous also for its use of Strauss (both Richard’s 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' and Johann’s 'Blue Danube'), the story (such as it is) details man’s first confrontation with a higher power (the monolith, the representation of the mysterious force that seems to guide man), his struggle against machines of his own making (the unforgettable HAL 9000), and the distant future, where man’s life cycle becomes meaningless.
