Overview

Stanley Kubrick, 1968, 141 min., 35mm

Kubrick's sci-fi masterpiece portrays a vision of humanity's trajectory — beginning with our primate progenitors' first use of tools and ending with human inquiry into the cosmos — revealing our transformed relationship to technology along the way. The metaphysical narrative is complemented by the meditative cinematography, stunning special effects, and an iconic soundtrack, all of which combine to sublime effect.
