2001: A Space Odyssey in 60 Seconds

It's Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece: a 2 hour, 41 minute epic in both length and scope; dealing with fundamental human issues of life and our future.

But apparently, he could have told the same story in just 60 seconds by getting on with it a bit. The genuises at Studio 1A4 have showed Stanley exactly how to do it, with the latest in their fantastic speedrun series, which compresses the movie to 0.6% of its original length.

Some would argue that it loses some of its gravitas and beauty, but you can't have it all, can you? Now you've got 2 hours and 40 minutes to watch more of the Xtra Factor instead.
