Stanley Kubrick’s celebrated sci-fi treatise uses Strauss’ ’Blue Danube’, amongst other classical pieces, to add gravity to the film’s weightless musings. At the dawn of Mankind, a tribe of ape-like beings are visited on Earth by a large black monolith. Thousands of years later, in the year 2001, scientist Dr Heywood Floyd (William Sylvester) discovers a similar black monolith on the moon, which then emits a signal aimed at the planet Jupiter. A year later, astronauts David Bowman (Keir Dullea) and Frank Poole (Gary Lockwood) are en route to Jupiter to investigate the signal’s destination and purpose. However, their mission comes under threat when the ship computer, HAL (voiced by Douglas Rain), seemingly develops a malfunction.

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 achievement is genuinely awe-inspiring, its 'Beyond the Infinite' sequence propelling both viewer and cinema itself to a new dimension. A wondrous destiny should await us.

To me not just another movie.It goes beyond its genre, even beyond cinema.It's a true masterpiece that should be praised like classical music for example and should be placed in the pantheon of human greatest achievements!Stanley Cubrick you are the greatest!
