Following the death of publishing tycoon Charles Foster Kane, reporters scramble to uncover the meaning of his final utterance; 'Rosebud'. Sometime in the distant past, someone or something nudged evolution by placing a monolith on Earth presumably elsewhere throughout the universe as well.
Evolution then enabled humankind to reach the moon's surface, where yet another monolith is found, one that signals the monolith placers that humankind has evolved that far.
Now a race begins between computers HAL and human Bowman to reach the monolith placers. The winner will achieve the next step in evolution, whatever that may be. Written by Larry Cousins. Sometimes reading the user comments on IMDB fills me with despair for the species.
For anybody to dismiss A Space Odyssey as "boring" they must have no interest in science, technology, philosophy, history or the art of film-making. Finally I understand why most Hollywood productions are so shallow and vacuous - they understand their audience. Thankfully, those that cannot appreciate Kubrick's accomplishment are still a minority. Most viewers are able to see the intelligence and sheer virtuosity that went into the making of this epic.
This is the film that put the science in "science fiction", and its depiction of space travel and mankind's future remains unsurpassed to this day. It was so far ahead of its time that humanity still hasn't caught up. The reason it is slow, and filled with minutae is because the aim was to realistically envision the future of technology and the past, in the awe inspiring opening scenes. The film's greatest strength is in the details. Remember that when this film was made, man still hadn't made it out to the moon To create such an incredibly detailed vision of the future that 35 years later it is still the best we have is beyond belief - I still can't work out how some of the shots were done.
The film's only notable mistake was the optimism with which it predicted mankind's technological and social development. It is our shame that the year did not look like the film , not Kubrick's. Besides the incredible special effects, camera work and set design, Kubrick also presents the viewer with a lot of food for thought about what it means to be human, and where the human race is going. Yes, the ending is weird and hard to comprehend - but that's the nature of the future.
Kubrick and Clarke have started the task of envisioning it, now it's up to the audience to continue. There's no neat resolution, no definitive full stop, because then the audience could stop thinking after the final reel. I know that's what most audiences seem to want these days, but Kubrick isn't going to let us off so lightly. I'm glad to see that this film is in the IMDB top films, and only wish that it were even higher.

Clarke and the film directed by Stanley Kubrick. It is a part of Clarke's Space Odyssey series. Both the novel and the film are partially based on Clarke's short story " The Sentinel ", an entry in a BBC short story competition, and " Encounter in the Dawn ", published in in the magazine Amazing Stories. After deciding on Clarke's short story "The Sentinel" as the starting point, and with the themes of man's relationship with the universe in mind, Clarke sold Kubrick five more of his stories to use as background materials for the film. Clarke was originally going to write the screenplay for the film, but this proved to be more tedious than he had anticipated.
The screenplay was written by Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke , and was inspired by Clarke's short story " The Sentinel " and other short stories by Clarke. A novel released after the film's premiere was in part written concurrently with the screenplay. The film, which follows a voyage to Jupiter with the sentient computer HAL after the discovery of a featureless alien monolith affecting human evolution, deals with themes of existentialism , human evolution , technology, artificial intelligence , and the possibility of extraterrestrial life. The film is noted for its scientifically accurate depiction of space flight, pioneering special effects, and ambiguous imagery. Sound and dialogue are used sparingly and often in place of traditional cinematic and narrative techniques. The film received diverse critical responses, ranging from those who saw it as darkly apocalyptic to those who saw it as an optimistic reappraisal of the hopes of humanity.
