On today’s episode, I talked with my twin brother Tom about 2001: A Space Odyssey directed by the legendary Stanley Kubrick. Due to its technical achievements in visual effects, its scientific accuracy, sound design, and how it approaches philosophy and life’s biggest questions, 2001: A Space Odyssey, is often considered to be the greatest film of all time. After the release of Dr. Strangelove, Kubrick wanted to set out to make the “the proverbial good science fiction film”.
Based on the short stories of one of the most-influential science-fiction writers of all time, Arthur C. Clarke, 2001 covers the length and breadth of time and space as our characters seek to discover the link between early and technologically advanced man. So, Sit back, relax, and open the pod bay doors to 2001: A Space Odyssey.
