'Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece.'
A science fiction classic - intelligent, epic, profound, visionary, mystical, a stunning visual experience. It's thirty minutes before the first spoken word and there are perhaps forty minutes of dialogue. it's visual wonders, auditory signals, space travel with man dwarfed by technology and the vastness of space and all wrapped up in wondrous music. A masterpiece.
