Roger Ebert said of Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece: m>”It says to us: We became men when we learned to think. Our minds have given us the tools to understand where we live and who we are. Now it is time to move on to the next step, to know that we live not on a planet but among the stars, and that we are not flesh but intelligence.” – Roger Ebert
