Does this generation and the one previous to it even know “2001: A Space Odyssey” that put the late Stanley Kubrick on the page of World’s Greatest Film Directors? We didn’t think so. But this film on putlocker remains a classic on humanity’s first encounter with lunar surfaces, artificial intelligence in the form of H.A.L. 9000, and black monoliths that send signals to affect human evolution.
Keir Dullea stars as Dr. David Bowman, Gary Lockwood plays Dr. Frank Poole, William Sylvester is Dr. Heywood R. Floyd, and Douglas Rain lends his voice to H.A.L. 9000. “2001: A Space Odyssey,” now considered a film epic for its scope and length, was dismissed as just another sci-fi fantasy movie back in the day, having been released a year before Apollo 11’s crew landed on the moon.
“2001: A Space Odyssey” was way ahead of its time and its director being Kubrick just makes it all the more compelling as a cinematic classic. “Gravity” or “Instellar” have nothing on “2001: A Space Odyssey,” inspired by Arthur A. Clarke’s short story. This film, after all, came from the creative genius of the man who gave us “Lolita,” “Spartacus,” “Dr. Strangelove,” “Full Metal Jacket,” “A Clockwork Orange,” and “The Shining.”
