Aro Favourite 2001 - A Space Odyssey


USA 1968, 139 minutes
Dir. Stanley Kubrick
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Science Fiction / Outer Space

Topics: Landmark.


Aroview: Stanley Kubrick's milestone sci-fi film is a magnificent visual wonder.

Based on the short story 'The Sentinal' by Arthur C. Clarke, this traces the stages of Man, from evolutionary, predatory animals, to futuristic space travellers on a mission to Jupiter who are being sabotaged by a malfunctioning computer known as HAL. Meticulously crafted and miles ahead of its time, it remains a giant enigma that is complusively (re)watchable.
