"2001" [1968]
2001 video  

Kubrick's 2001 movie poster  

Based on Arthur C. Clarke's story "The Sentinel", the movie "2001" took sci-fi movies out of the drive-in theaters and into wide-screen movie palaces. Director Stanley Kubrick & special effects wizard Douglas Trumbull set the standard for space effects, which "Stars Wars" expanded upon nine years later. The movie is subjective – only 40 minutes of dialogue in its 139-minute general release version – and redefined the parameters of cinema. The "Also Sprach Zarathustra" theme has become a melodic icon, evoking images that are deeply part of the culture – the black monolith, the apes, the space station, HAL's red light, and the surreal ending. Co-written & directed by Stanley Kubrick; starring Keir Dullea, Douglas Rain & Gary Lockwood; won Oscar for Best Effects, nominated for Best Director, Script & Art Direction; also Hugo Award from W.S.F.S.
