50th Anniversary Edition - Includes Interview with Douglas Trumbull

“In this meticulously researched and written monograph on Kubrick’s masterwork, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Halstead has travelled through the Star Gate and arrived at a place few, if any, have landed. To analyze and deconstruct such a complex work takes an agile mind – one that comprehends the craft and history of movies as well as the study of science, science fiction, metaphysics, and spiritual matters – and it is here Halstead most succeeds.”

“The voice is knowledgeable, direct, speaking to motion picture experts as well as to millions of movie-lovers worldwide, whether sitting in front of a movie screen in a theater or in front of their television sets.”

2001: A Space Odyssey has long been considered a ‘difficult’ film. It has been called boring, too long, impossible to understand, and pretentious. Those folks should read this book – as well as those, like me, who revere this masterpiece of modern cinema and want to learn more about Kubrick and his signature film. I know I learned something and am grateful to Mr. Halstead for going to a place beyond our understanding of the universe, to a place that – now that the year 2001 has passed – exists in the centuries to come.”

—Vincent LoBrutto, author of Stanley Kubrick: A Biography and Martin Scorsese: A Biography
