Critical Insights: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Nearly fifty years after its release, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey remains a turning point in the history of science fiction cinema, and one of the most critically acclaimed science-fiction films ever made. As such, it's been chosen by Salem Press for its Critical Insights: Film series (an extension of Salem's well known CI series in literature).
These volumes are intended for an undergraduate, or upper-level high school, readership – providing key background, context, and analysis for thinking about the film itself, its place in American cinema, and its influences across media.
