Notebook Reviews: 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY

Stanley Kubrick – 1968

4 out of 5 stars

Stanley Kubrick‘s 2001: A Space Odyssey is a splendid and spectacular slice of science fiction for grown-ups. The special effects are tremendous, the soundtrack is excellent and the performances are great. This is the complete package. 

Thought-provoking and enjoyable, 2001: A Space Odyssey doesn’t give its audience the easy way out – especially with its ambiguous ending. There’s a reason why Kubrick’s film is highly regarded as a classic.
