2001: A Space Odyssey

Dir. Stanley Kubrick USA/UK 160 min G

1968 BFI

Over 850 people responded to our 8th annual Members Select poll, and one film emerged victorious. Here it is by popular vote, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY!

Widely regarded as one of the finest films of all time, Kubrick’s epic story of man’s quest for knowledge takes us from pre-history to the very limits of space and time.

“The genius is not in how much Stanley Kubrick does in 2001: A Space Odyssey, but in how little. This is the work of an artist so sublimely confident that he doesn’t include a single shot simply to keep our attention. He reduces each scene to its essence, and leaves it on screen long enough for us to contemplate it, to inhabit it in our imaginations. Alone among science-fiction movies, 2001 is not concerned with thrilling us, but with inspiring our awe.” — Roger Ebert
