2001: A Space Odyssey DVD - Just The Good Stuff 2001: A Space Odyssey ranked # 22 on the American Film Institute's Top 100 American Films list.

2001: A Space Odyssey is an influential 1968 science fiction film directed by Stanley Kubrick. The story is based in part on various short stories by co-screenwriter Arthur C. Clarke, most notably "The Sentinel" (1951).

Kubrick collaborated with Clarke, and together they first concurrently produced the novel version that was released alongside the film and then towards the end Kubrick simultaneously wrote the screenplay.

The film is notable for combining episodes contrasting high levels of scientific and technical realism with transcendental mysticism.

Upon release, 2001 received mostly positive reviews, and quickly gained a cult following (its psychedelic visual imagery was quickly embraced by the counterculture). Roger Ebert gave the film four stars in his original review, believing the film "succeeds magnificently on a cosmic scale."

This film won the Academy Award for visual effects in 1968.
