About this deal

The characters are painfully naturalistic, relationships are cold and unnerving, and the ending is vague and experimental. And finally, and most importantly of all, you need to understand that it really is possible to love a film while at exactly the same time, wondering whether you're going to make it through to the end or not. Even more remarkably, Kubrick manages to use his uniquely ‘pure’ cinematic style to tell what’s actually an unusually complex and profound story of man’s first interactions with an ancient, impossibly advanced alien civilization.

There’s something about his performance that can’t be undervalued, the work he does to captivate is just as iconic as the film and without him at the centre, we might not have the same overall admiration. Stanley Kubrick redefined the limits of filmmaking in his classic science fiction masterpiece, a contemplation on the nature of humanity, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Fifty years later, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey remains a hypnotic, seminal sci-fi masterpiece of visual storytelling that continues to inspire, dumbfound and challenge.I always remember the opening sequence with the hominins extensively unsettling me in my youth and that feeling continues today. Later, a primate throws a bone into the sky and it transforms into the greatest fast-forward shot captured on celluloid of a spaceship. Years ago, I gave up trying to argue the merits of the film with those who find it tedious or plodding. As it did fifty years ago, Kubrick's visual masterpiece once again mesmerizes and astounds moviegoers, landing on Ultra HD with a spectacularly marvelous HEVC H.

It’s a portrait of the infinite size of the universe by the sheer travelling over the time used to show these shots. Partly as a result of an obsessive need to understand everything at the cost of just enjoying it and partly as a result of a fine art degree followed by the last 20 years working in visual arts, I can't really watch a film without watching myself watching the film.Kubrick picked the best of other ideas and compiled this into his movies, such as the strange music from 'Forbidden Planet', and the lack of editing in many scenes that go on for several minutes.

There are also four additional featurettes: Standing on the Shoulders of Kubrick: The Legacy of 2001, Vision of a Future Passed: The Prophecy of 2001, 2001: A Space Odyssey – A Look Behind the Future and What Is Out There? To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. FOR HALF a century, Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” has been hailed as one of cinema’s greatest – with its mind-blowing visuals of a spacecraft dancing in the starry void.I liked watching the multitude of filmic and narrative devices that I have since seen in later films, many of which are far less memorable than this one.
