Frank Ocean wasn't the only one to declare the work of Stanley Kubrick"some visionary shit." Upon release in 1968, 2001 was largely slept on, opening to mixed reviews, but now it is widely considered one of the best films of all time.

Catch the celebrated director's flick that set the tone for the sci-fi genre this Thursday. Minimal dialogue, a cryptic storyline, a striking soundtrack, and eye-popping visuals coordinate for one of the most breathtaking experiences in film. Period.
