Details

One of the most ambitious films ever made, 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) is an epic of space exploration that takes in the whole history of humanity (as well as speculation about its future). A technical triumph that stands up today, 2001 is topical also because of its meditation on the relationship between man, animal and machine. In this book, Michel Chion offers some keys to understanding this haunting and enigmatic film. Setting 2001 first in its historical and cultural contexts (the Space Race, the Cold War, 1960s psychedelia), Chion goes on to locate it within Kubrick's career. He then conducts a meticulous and subtle analysis of its structure and style. In a supplementary chapter, Chion argues that Kubrick's last film, Eyes Wide Shut (1999), is a return to 2001, a final statement of its concerns. And in a series of appendices, Chion provides production details, an analytic synopsis, credits and a consideration of the legacy of 2001.
