2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (film)
2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Stanley Kubrick, dir. UK/USA: Stanley Kubrick Productions/MGM, 1968. Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, script.
See for helpful machines, encompassing machines, the behavior of men and machines merging—and for HAL 9000. See above, under Fiction, Clarke, 2001. See under Drama Criticism, the citations for J. Agel, C. Geduld, and M. Rose. Note date of film; Erlich speculates that one of the reasons 1968 was When It Changed was that 2001 was the culmination and initial deconstruction (reductio ad finem) of a basic masculinist myth of SF.
See among many sources on the film the volume on production design, The 2001 File: Harry Lange and the Design of the Landmark Science Fiction Film.
For why HAL 9000 is frightening but not some sort of mechanized Horror monster, see COLOSSUS: THE FORBIN PROJECT: Evolution and Artificial Intelligence.
