Kubrick, who has been an innovator in every genre that he tried his hands at, created a never-before-done sci-fi masterpiece when he worked with Arthur C. Clarke, one of the most prestigious “scientific science fiction” writers of the era. 2001 is a monumental symphony about what science and technology means for humans and their relationship with things they invent (i.e. computers in the case of HAL). The film, which depicts, starting with their pre-technology ancestors, humanity’s drifting from one turning point to the next triggered by a mysterious black monolith, forms one of the purest, most elegant, sublime and mind-bending audio visuals in cinema, which Kubrick suggested that should resemble music rather than literature.
