It’s the fiftieth anniversary of 2001: A Space Odyssey and celebrations are in order. Kubrick’s critical view of technological development is regarded as a milestone in the history of cinema because of its original narrative structure and pioneering special effects.

Eye is also screening the new 70mm print that premiered this year at the Cannes Film Festival and was made from the original camera negative under the supervision of director Christopher Nolan.

Kubrick originally perfected every detail of his magnificent tale of man”s origins and the rebellion of a self-thinking computer that takes over the crew of a spaceship. His visionary film about our growing dependence on technology is more relevant than ever.

technology criticism

The spectacular use of classical music for the soundtrack, the art direction and the theme (“what is man”s place in the universe”) turned the film into a mind-blowing experience and an irresistible mix of science fiction, technology criticism and adventure film. Nominated for four Oscar Awards, 2001: A Space Odyssey ultimately received an Oscar for Special Visual Effects.
