Clarke and some members of the cast and crew who were part of the magnificent experience that would become one of the landmarks of science fiction movies, still fascinating audiences with its mystery, its visual and its messages.Written by
James Cameron hosts this documentary that is certainly well-made but it isn't nearly as interesting as one would have hoped for. Arthur C. Clarke, Con Pederson, Douglas Trumbull and various other cast and crew members are on hand to discuss the landmark Stanley Kubrick film.
There have been countless documentaries made on Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and this one here will appeal to die-hard fans of the film but I personally think there have been much more interesting films out there. I think the biggest problem is that a lot of the commentary here comes off rather dry and it's just not overly interesting. The most fascinating parts includes one actor who played one of the apes and we hear about the research he did for the part. Another interesting discussion deals with how the film began to catch on longer after its original release.
