Revisiting 2001: A Space Odyssey

In reflecting on the previous post regarding George Adamski's experiences, it occurred to me to view again the 1968 film classic 2001: A Space Odyssey. A new Netflix release contains current commentary by the two lead actors Keir Dullea (Dave) and Gary Lockwood (Frank), as they look back on their initial experience in the original production. This was the most interesting part of the experience, after having reviewed and been bored by the film itself. Dullea's and Lockwood's comments gave me a whole new appreciation about the historic value of film-maker Stanley Kubrick's and science-fiction-writer Arthur C. Clark's work.
