Nel prologo, un uomo-scimmia, forse influenzato da un monolite nero, scopre che un osso può essere usato come arma di offesa per sottomettere i più deboli. Quattro milioni di anni dopo, nel 2001, per cercare di spiegare cosa si nasconde dietro un immenso monolite nero, scoperto vicino alla base lunare di Clavius, un'astronave, guidata dal sofisticatissimo computer Hal 9000, parte alla volta di Giove con a bordo due astronauti, Frank Poole e David Bowman e tre scienziati ibernati. Ma durante il viaggio il computer si ribella agli ordini e provoca la morte dei tre scienziati e di Poole. Bowman riuscirà a sopravvivere ma per lui l'avventura non è finita. (Mereghetti)
Stanley Kubrick, the masterpiece collection by Stanley Kubrick( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2001: Kubrick's dazzling Academy Award-winning achievement (Special Visual Effects) is an allegorical puzzle on the evolution of man and a compelling drama of man vs. machine. Featuring a stunning meld of music and motion, the film was also Oscar-nominated for Best Director, Art Direction and Writing. The director (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits the prehistoric age-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality
