Among the best science fiction films there is one that clearly stands out above the rest and that has been configured as one of the best movies in history. Star Wars It was key in the history of cinema, creating a science fiction genre that was more accessible to everyone. But, for this film to run, others had to walk, and George Lucas himself, director and creative behind the first films in the saga There is a movie that is much better than Star Wars.

An unbeatable film

From the first hominids to the future, Stanley Kubrick adapts the novel of the same name, talking from the appearance of the first intelligent primates to the advent of higher intelligences or AI millions of years later. It all has to do with some monoliths buried on the Moon and other planets, so during a NASA mission, an AI is going to start behaving in a somewhat peculiar way. His name is 2001: A Space Odyssey and it was one of the great works of the always great Stanley Kubrick.

But why does George Lucas say it is better than his film? Let’s see it, but first we have to keep in mind that it is almost unanimous that it is the definitive science fiction film.

Why it’s better than ‘Star Wars’ according to George Lucas

In the documentary freely available on YouTube titled 2001: A Space Odyssey. On the shoulders of Kubrick You can see several interventions by science fiction geniuses such as Steven Spielberg (E.T.AI: Artificial intelligence), the film critic Roger Ebert oe, George Lucas himself, one of the great fans of the director who ensures that 2001: A Space Odyssey It’s even better.

Stanley Kubrick made the definitive science fiction movie and it’s going to be very difficult for anyone to come and make a better movie.

Furthermore, he concluded with the following:

At a technical level, Star Wars It can be compared, but in my opinion I think ‘2001’ is much better.

Thus, Lucas once again demonstrates humility when executing his work, which, we cannot forget, at the time was created with a very tight budget and with a good dose of ingenuity. Thus, there is no doubt that Star Wars It is an excellent work of science fiction, although the director himself shows that there is one that still surpasses him.
