Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester, Leonard Rossiter.
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 BAFTAs: Winner Best Cinematography - Geoffrey Unsworth. Nominated Best Film - Stanley Kubrick
1969 Oscars: Winner Best Effects, Special Visual Effects - Stanley Kubrick.Nominated Best Director - Stanley Kubrick
