Product description

Review

'In this excellent addition to the BFI's Film Classics series, Kramer lovingly explores the genesis of both film and novel, as well as the film's reception and cultural impact.' - The Guardian

'...this volume skilfully condenses four decades of cinema studies, academic insights and retrospective analyses...a worthwhile addition to the growing library of informed texts about 2001, Kramer's book captures something of Kubrick's vaulting ambitions, and Clarke's impeccable mastery of SF modes...' - The Zone

'Chapter six contains the best narrative description of 2001 I've ever read' - Anthony Frewin inSight & Sound

'The inclusion of recently released archive material by itself constitutes a significant addition to the body of writing on the Kubrick oeuvre. And while the film itself remains (to my mind) frustratingly ambiguous, Kramer's account of its creation and his interpretation provide a useful introduction for viewers and students coming to the film for the first time.' - Sheamus Sweeney, Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television
