Last year marked the 50th Anniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Stars Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood discuss the making of the film and the 50-year journey since.
One of the greatest films in the history of cinema was hated by critics at the time of its release. It completely changed the direction of science fiction “space” cinema and cemented the genre as anything but silly, compared to what came before. This episode was culled from a series of interviews conducted over the course of 2018 with stars Keir Dullea (Dave Bowman) and Gary Lockwood (Gary Poole).
2001: A Space Odyssey is now available in 4K/UHD from Warner Home Video. The best way to watch it is on 70mm film. See if your local film society, IMAX, or art house is playing it.
