The Final Season - Week 7: 2001: A Space Odyssey

2001 - A Space Odyssey.jpg

Stanley Kubrick, 1968

The deliberate pacing and orchestral score of 2001: A Space Odyssey lends gravitas to this epic, ambitious film. From the dawn of man to our future in space (and beyond), Stanley Kubrick’s opus revolutionized special effects and science fiction. Its influence is still felt today, even beyond the 5-note opening splendor of a score (Also Spoke Zarathustra, written by Richard Strauss in 1896 and inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophical novel, now forever known as “That 2001 Music”).
