2001: A Space Odyssey in 70mm
Dir. Stanley Kubrick, 1968, 159 mins. 70mm print from Warner Bros. Classics. With Keir Dullea. As brilliantly engineered as the space program itself, Kubrick’s mysterious and profound epic—“the ultimate trip”—is about nothing less than the beauty and banality of civilization, blending cool satire, an elaborate vision of the future, and passages of avant-garde cinematic inventiveness.
