Kubrick picked the best of other ideas and compiled this into his movies, such as the strange music from 'Forbidden Planet', and the lack of editing in many scenes that go on for several minutes. The stupidly loud hissing every time we're watching someone in a spacesuit is completely pointless and annoying. Like many Kubrick films, 2001: A Space Odyssey is best approached as a cerebral endeavor rather than as outright entertainment, as Kubrick uses the trappings of the sci-fi genre to pose genuine questions of sentience, existence, and intelligence. The funny thing is, despite the trip of 2001 as a film, it carries a basic story through the middle, even if it requires context and scope to reveal it.

I liked watching the multitude of filmic and narrative devices that I have since seen in later films, many of which are far less memorable than this one. Whether we like it or not, whether we are familiar with the technicalities or not, everything from the quality of the prints to the style of the acting and the look of the special effects will be scrutinised - consciously or unconsciously - by us when we watch a 45-year-old film, particularly one that has been so lauded and for which we are expected to have such high expectations. Watching the film, there was a palpable sense of excitement in the room as each of us found ourselves completely taken by some of the most arresting visions that have ever been committed to film.A Space Odyssey- A Look Behind the Future-Look in on Look Magazine’s charmingly retro tour of the London set of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Like many of the reviewers on here both for and against the film, over the decades my expectations of films, along with the technology that produced them and the fashions that have driven them, have developed and changed and I can't help considering that fact when I reflect on this film. Better still, 2001 isn’t just some throw away Sci-Fi because it’s also far ahead of its time (in some ways even it was today) as it’s also accurate in its scientific depictions of life in space, in both a technical and human sense. This includes some brilliantly crude early concept artworks that illustrate just how far they managed to go with the finished results. Facial complexions are highly revealing, and the lettering on screen monitors are more distinct and legible, even from a short distance.

Space ships dance with balletic grace and zero gravity is portrayed more convincingly than in anything I have seen since.Digital Light Processing (DLP) is the leading projection technology used in 90% of world's digital cinemas and 100% of IMAX cinemas. The new mix, though, subtly extends the dynamic range - especially in the upper register of the most potent orchestral sequences. But the sense of scale, beauty, and time together with the detached, otherworldly atmosphere Stanley Kubrick’s meticulous approach create say far more than any number of pages of dialogue ever could. The craft from the space station to the moon, is a more economical and viable method, even if never built in reality.
