2001: A Space Odyssey Limited-Edition Gift Set

4

For all its inconclusive musings on the nature of humankind, the progress of evolution and man's ultimate destiny, Stanley Kubrick's 1968 sci-fi stormer is at its best in the machinations of the disturbed supercomputer HAL. The quiet menace of his sombre chats with the astronauts hunting for the mysterious black monoliths gives 2001 a solid dramatic core that lets it withstand all the metaphysical questioning Kubrick bolts on.
