Review In A Nutshell:

Its grand pastiche of human evolution; its deliberate sense of pace; its majestic and harrowing music; its striking visual effects; and its radiant iconography. 2001: A Space Odyssey encapsulates everything that defines ‘Stanley Kubrick’ with that tight grip of control found within all facets of its production - an ample level of autonomy that many filmmakers deeply strive for. But with that autonomy comes a famished vision waiting to burst from an artist’s mind, a depth that unfortunately not all are bestowed with. Everything prior in Kubrick’s filmography has led to this, an encapsulating showcase of his artistic peak that speaks broadly and intimately, thoughtfully and viscerally, of the human condition.
