2001: A Space Odyssey @ Art Gallery of NSW


Kubrick’s most famous and influential film was an all-consuming experience that dazzled audiences upon release in 1968. It transformed science-fiction cinema, transcending the generic boundaries and permanently altering audience expectations. Kubrick chose to keep 2001: a space odyssey mysterious and enigmatic, offering a mythic vision of the relationship between humanity and technology. With an extremely slow pace and elusive narrative, this is the rarest of cinematic achievements: a big-budget, non-narrative spectacle which makes an original and personal statement about the human condition. Released at the height of the space race between the USSR and the US, it was embraced by counter-cultural audiences for its psychedelic, mystical and mind-bending elements.
