I saw it in a theater when I was eight. I had no idea what was going on, but I loved the visuals until the last part, which was very boring. I was a big fan of the Apollo program, reading books and building models and basically soaking in it, so I loved all the space stuff.

I liked both Yellow Submarine and Planet of the Apes better that year. Now I like 2001 better than those two.

It was a good year for G rated films.

Anyway. Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood are going to be in attendance, and do an audience Q&A.

And ... it's already sold out.
Bummer! That would be an event to remember.

I had recently revisited the Cinefex article on 2001 (issue 85) and liked the Douglas Trumbull quote:

"Everything was 'sort of' supposed to represent something," asserted Trumbull, "but the objective of the picture was to make it so ambiguous that people could interpret it as anything they wanted to. That was Kubrick's main intent, I believe. People like to grab hold of things in a very literal way so they can make sense out of them - but there was none of that with 2001. Kubrick sought not to make sense out of it. It was up to the viewer to interpret it. In that respect, Kubrick succeeded in making a film that is more like a piece of music than a story."

In the same issue is a James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment ad celebrating 2001 with the Kubrick quote:

"I would not think of quarreling with your interpretation nor offering any other, as I have found it always the best policy to allow the film to speak for itself."

What a movie to see at eight. I think I would've been freaked out.
Adam: Why do you waste your time with that second-life bulls**t? Look at you. You're still in jail. You were in jail last week.
Jacob: Yeah, I'm a prisoner. It's called "doing hard time".

The Making of Stanley Kubrick’s '2OO1: A Space Odyssey'
Piers Bizony, M/M (Paris)
Hardcover, 4 vols. with metal slipcase, 19,8 x 44 cm, 1384 pages
€ 500

Made in exclusive collaboration with the Kubrick estate and Warner Bros., this copiously illustrated work features hundreds of unique 2oo1-related documents, concept artworks, and superb behind-the-scenes photographs from the Kubrick Archives—most of which have never been published before—as well as exclusive correspondence and personal testimony from Kubrick's co-screenwriter Arthur C. Clarke.

The Making of Stanley Kubrick’s "2oo1: A Space Odyssey" is a landmark book for film fans and a celebration of technical special-effects innovation before the digital age, conceived by the very designers of TASCHEN’s instant collectible Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon: The Greatest Movie Never Made.

The Making of Stanley Kubrick’s 2oo1: A Space Odyssey
Four hardcover volumes with a metal slipcase, all designed by M/M (Paris):
Volume 1: Film stills
Volume 2: Behind the scenes (including new interviews with lead actors, senior production designers, and key special-effects experts)
Volume 3: Facsimile of original screenplay
Volume 4: Facsimile of original 1965 production notes
Box cover painted by Wayne Haag based on 2oo1: A Space Odyssey elements
Plus a small comic surprise

Looks stunning. I'll wait for the under $100 version though.

I think they've always done this. I think there were limited more expensive versions of Napoleon and Kubrick Archives as well, before the cheaper versions became available.
