3 Responses Bamiyan April 29, 2014 The film was in fact shot between 29 December 1965 and 7 July 1966 (source: IMDb) Reply Chris April 29, 2014 Thanks Bamiyan, I’ll correct that. Reply Anna13 May 14, 2014 Despite 2001′s slow & obviously dated direction, its themes are visionary. Many of its contents, which were deemed science fiction back then, became true. Examples include the internet, chatting, tablets, iphones, intelligent computers, & more. It truly is movie retrofuturism & futurism at its best.
