A painted image of a space station suspended in space, in the background the Earth is visible. 2001: A Space Odyssey is a 1968 epic science fiction film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick. The screenplay was written by Kubrick and Arthur C. The film received mixed reactions from critics and audiences upon its release, but garnered a cult following and became the highest-grossing North American film of 1968. Kubrick received one for his direction of visual effects.

2001: A Space Odyssey is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential films ever made. In an African desert millions of years ago, a tribe of hominids is driven away from its water hole by a rival tribe. They awaken to find a featureless black monolith has appeared before them. Seemingly influenced by the monolith, they discover how to use a bone as a weapon and drive their rivals away from the water hole.

Millions of years later, a Pan Am spaceplane carries Dr. Heywood Floyd to the huge Space Station V orbiting Earth for a layover on his trip to Clavius Base, a United States outpost on the Moon. Eighteen months later, the United States spacecraft Discovery One is bound for Jupiter. On board are mission pilots and scientists Dr.

Frank Poole, along with three other scientists in suspended animation. HAL 9000 with a human personality that the crew calls „Hal“. Hal says he is „foolproof and incapable of error“. Hal raises concerns about the nature of the mission to Bowman, but their conversation is interrupted when Hal reports the imminent failure of an antenna control device. Meanwhile, Hal turns off the life support functions of the crewmen in suspended animation. When Bowman returns to the ship with Poole’s body, Hal refuses to let him in, stating that the astronauts‘ plan to deactivate him jeopardizes the mission.

Bowman opens the ship’s emergency airlock manually, enters the ship, and proceeds to Hal’s processor core. Hal tries to reassure Bowman, then pleads with him to stop, and finally expresses fear. At Jupiter, Bowman leaves Discovery One in an EVA pod to investigate another monolith orbiting the planet. The pod is pulled into a vortex of colored light, the Star Gate, and Bowman races across vast distances of space, viewing bizarre cosmological phenomena and strange landscapes of unusual colors. Bowman finds himself in a bedroom appointed in the baroque style. He sees, and then becomes, older versions of himself, first standing in the bedroom, middle-aged and still in his spacesuit, then dressed in leisure attire and eating dinner, and finally as an old man lying in the bed. Searching for a collaborator in the science fiction community, Kubrick was advised by a mutual acquaintance, Columbia Pictures staffer Roger Caras, to talk to writer Arthur C.

Kubrick and Clarke privately referred to the project as How the Solar System Was Won, a reference to MGM’s 1962 Cinerama epic How the West Was Won. On February 23, 1965, Kubrick issued a press release announcing the title as Journey Beyond The Stars. The Odyssey as inspiration for the title. Kubrick said, „It occurred to us that for the Greeks the vast stretches of the sea must have had the same sort of mystery and remoteness that space has for our generation.

How much would we appreciate La Gioconda today if Leonardo had written at the bottom of the canvas: „This lady is smiling slightly because she has rotten teeth“—or „because she’s hiding a secret from her lover“? It would shut off the viewer’s appreciation and shackle him to a reality other than his own. Kubrick and Clarke planned to develop the 2001 novel first, free of the constraints of film, and then write the screenplay. They planned the writing credits to be „Screenplay by Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, based on a novel by Arthur C.

Clarke and Stanley Kubrick“ to reflect their preeminence in their respective fields. There are a number of differences between the book and the movie. The novel, for example, attempts to explain things much more explicitly than the film does, which is inevitable in a verbal medium. The novel came about after we did a 130-page prose treatment of the film at the very outset.
