Stanley Kubrick‘s 2001: A Space Odyssey stands as one of the greatest sci-fi films ever made. I wouldn’t say it’s an entertaining film, but it’s intellectually fulfilling and worthy of endless discussion. Adding to that discussion is Jerome Agel‘s rare, out-of-print book The Making of Kubrick’s 2001. Scanned and put online by Cinephilia and Beyond, the book contains [per The Playlist] “the original Arthur C. Clarke short story “The Sentinel” that inspired the movie, a rare Kubrick interview with Playboy magazine, reviews, a massive photo insert, plus insights from all kinds of people that worked on the movie.” Scrolling through the pages makes me wish I could own the book, but this is certainly the next best thing.
