With A.I.'s posthumous realisation minus Kubrick, this remains his only work of science fiction. But what a work! Ahead of its time even now, its a unique 'trip' though aeons of human history, from our primitive ape ancestors, to a future space mission to Jupiter. . . and beyond. Cinematographer Geoffrey Unsworth, special effects artists, and Kubrick's legendary obsession for detail pull you into a totally believable reality, increasingly rewarding with each repeated viewing.

1969 Oscars: Winner Best Effects, Special Visual Effects - Stanley Kubrick.Nominated Best Director - Stanley Kubrick
Its triumph lies in its scope of cinematic splendour and the attempt to marry some of man's most beautiful music to the infinite mystery of space
