An excerpt from a Patreon-only discussion of Kubrick’s sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey. This was an extremely fun roundtable, where we covered behind-the-scenes facts, the meaning of the movie, and debated its place in movie history.
Bruce Handy from Vanity Fair, who has an article in the current issue titled “2001: A Film Odyssey,” science journalist Corey Powell from Discover, American Scientist and Bill Nye, and film critic Christopher Funderburg from The Pink Smoke dig into what some consider the greatest movie ever made. A lively discussion with insider facts from the Kubrick Archive, fascinating science background info, and much debate over this movie’s place in the history of cinema.
