Film Description

"Hello, HAL do you read me, HAL?"
"Affirmative, Dave, I read you."

Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke's's celebrated sci-fi treatise in which astronauts (Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood) head out to Jupiter to investigate a mysterious signal's destination and purpose. However, their mission comes under threat when the ship computer, HAL (voiced by Douglas Rain), seemingly develops a malfunction.

Not just a film, more an event and a piece of philosophy wrapped in some of the most astonishing imagery ever filmed, this is a much imitated, profoundly inspiring film.

There's Hollywood and then there's Kubrick; there's adolescent-fodder sci-fi and then there's '2001'. A film which in ambition, scope, visual spectacle and overall ach... Read on
