This is the first episode of Someone Else’s Movie since I turned fifty, so I thought it might be nice to feature a film that’s the same age. And movies from 1968 don’t stand any taller than 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Tackling Stanley Kubrick’s masterwork with me is Barry Stevens, a documentary filmmaker who’s been thinking about the movie at least as long as I have — when he’s not working on his own stuff, anyway.
It’s a good, long conversation, with room for a consideration of genre films that followed in 2001‘s wake and a few other tangents. I think you’ll like it. I certainly did.
