"The ultimate trip," Stanley Kubrick's science-fiction masterpiece has survived innumerable parodies, references and rip-offs with its awe-inspiring power intact. Tracing a cosmic mystery from the dawn of mankind to the farthest reaches of time and space, 2001 chronicles an intergalactic mission to find the origin of a mysterious black monolith discovered by American astronauts on the moon — a mission complicated when the ship's renegade computer HAL 9000 decides that its human cargo is inadequate to carry out such an important task. Featuring spectacular special effects by Douglas Trumbull, 2001 pointedly speculates on what it means to be human in an age dominated by technology, and what the next stage of human evolution could potentially be.
