Talking about 2001: Space Odyssey is talking about a film that has become one of the most influential works in the history of cinema. Indelible in the collective consciousness are aspects such as the opening music (Thus Spake Zarathrusta), the monolith scene, as well as the A.I. character that is HAL and the Oscar-winning special effects. The film focuses on a trip to Jupiter and addresses themes such as existentialism or human evolution.
[Based on the short story The Sentinel by Arthur C. Clarke]
