Keir & Gary :: 6 Reasons “2001: A Space Odyssey” Is The Most Important SciFi Film Of All Time
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

This video is from back in 2014, but Keir and Gary Lockwood (Frank Poole) talk to IGN about the reasons 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is the most important SciFi film of all time. I’d have to say I agree with eveything they say. It still galls me how everyone keeps saying the most important film was George Lucas’ 1977 Star Wars. It wasn’t. Star Wars always has been more of an adventure film, while it has science fiction elements to it, it is still largely based on the Saturday morning serials that touches tangentially on the Joseph Campbell mythos of A Hero With A Thousand Faces. But if we judge which film had the most impact on the science fiction genre on a whole, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is by far THE most important film bar none.

From 1971 :: Keir Dullea Appears on CBS “Camera 3”
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

I have two new images of Keir from 1971 where he hosted a CBS program called Camera 3 in what they called “a primer for 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY“. It looked like the program coincided with a television airing of the film. Keir of course played Commander Dave Bowman along with Gary Lockwood who played Dr. Frank Poole. Enjoy.

Screenrant Names “2001: A Space Odyssey” Their #1
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      2 Comments

… most confusing film of all time. Not too surprising. They named other films such as Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris, Christopher Nolan’s Memento, and David Cronenberg’s Naked Lunch. Here’s what they had to say about Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece:

1. 2001: A Space Odyssey

2001screenrant

Often cited as one of the greatest visual directors, Stanley Kubrick never played it safe when it came to choosing subject matter for his films. A Clockwork Orange is a violent tale about freedom of choice, Eyes Wide Shut is a study of elite obsession, and 2001: A Space Odyssey is about the evolution of humans, or so we think. Honestly, there have been so many discussions on what 2001 is actually about that even 48 years after its release, it’s still one of the most talked about movies in history.

The scene that sparks the most discussion is the film’s trippy ending in which astronaut Dave is sucked into a psychedelic wormhole that looks like a Pink Floyd laser show. Once through, Dave watches himself age in a mysterious room. Dave grows old and dies in a matter of minutes, seemingly, and is then reborn as a giant baby in a bubble to journey back to Earth. A master visual storyteller, Kubrick doesn’t clear anything up with any dialog, and while some of the questions it poses are answered by its less acclaimed sequel, the ending to 2001 still baffles most audiences that watch it today, making it our pick for the most talked about confusing movie of all time.

Press Scans :: July 2016 Australasia Empire – 50 Greatest Sci-Fi Moments
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

Along with the event images post before this one, I’ve added a new scan for the press section. This time it’s from the Australasia July 2016 edition of Empire magazine. Here they name their 50 greatest Sci-Fi moments. They chose as the number one greatest the HAL-9000 disconnection scene from 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. I’d have to say I completely agree with them. Their top ten was pretty impressive including the chestburster scene from Alien where Kane (John Hurt) gave bith, the Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) dying scene from Blade Runner, both films directed by Ridley Scott. Number 5 was the final scene at the end of Franklin J. Schaffner’s Planet of the Apes where George Taylor (Charleton Heston) and Nova (Linda Harrison) find the ruined Statue of Liberty on the beach. They also named the Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) “Get away from her you bitch!” scene from James Cameron’s Aliens. Considering how great 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is as a whole, I’m pretty impressed they chose the disconnection scene considering the stargate sequence, as well as the Dawn of Man opening and it’s iconic moment of the three million year jumpcut from the bone to the weapons platform. I’m including the write up in this post, but to see the scans, please click on any of the links below.

HAL SHUTS DOWN 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968)

There have been many other scary movie supercomputers: in 1965, just three years before Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, Jean-Luc Godard’s Alphaville saw the titular city ruled by a data-bastard called Alpha 60. But none have ever been able to upgrade to the heights of the psychotic HAL 9000. There’s his eerie lone red peeper, staring out like a robotic version of the Eye of Sauron. There’s his mellow but menacing voice, provided by Canadian actor Douglas Rain. And then there’s his unforgettable demise, as astronaut David Bowman (Keir Dullea) races to shut him down after he’s pressed “Power Off” on his human shipmate. It could have played out as an action scene, with HAL issuing dark threats and hurling obstacles. Instead, there’s a strange poignancy as he suffers the computer equivalent of a mental breakdown. “I’m afraid, Dave… Dave, my mind is going… I can feel it… I can feel it… My mind is going,” he monotones, pitifully, voice slowing like a pitched-down 12-inch. Then he sings a song: Daisy Bell, the 19th-century children’s rhyme IBM selected for one of its computers to croon as a demonstration in 1961. Set to a background of hissing oxygen, it’s a raw, intimate and surprisingly emotional moment. Not bad for a scene involving a box talking to a man in a helmet. It’s easy to imagine that when the machines fi nally take over Earth for real, this will be their go-to weepie.
