2001: A Space Odyssey

Based on a short story by Arthur C. Clarke, 2001 is the kind of film that some people will love, and others will hate. There are many different interpretations of this movie - many of them religious - and Kubrick himself has avoided answering questions just to keep the confusion going. One of the most famous "movie computers", HAL, plays a major role in this film, and his interactions with his operator, Dave Bowman, have been parodied many times. The footage of the moon was created more than a year before Neil Armstrong landed there - and Kubrick had it exactly right. All that is up for debate is what it all means...
