Show. Don't Tell. Kubrick's Visual Storytelling in '2001: A Space Odyssey'

Show. Don't Tell. Kubrick's Visual Storytelling in '2001: A Space Odyssey'

Stanley Kubrick released his magnum opus ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ in 1968. A monumental undertaking for the cast and crew, it was slammed by critics as incomprehensible and self-indulgent. Yet audiences—some in altered states of mind—lined up to see it, and it’s since become one of the most acclaimed films of all time.

In this video by Film Radar, we’re treated to a treatise on the cinematic art of “show, don’t tell.” Considering 2001’s stunning visuals and minimalist dialogue, no other film could serve as a better example.

A video essay examining some of the cinematic language of Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey", and how it communicates its ideas through sound and imagery.
