I really like that the helmet's are not lit from the inside. I know Hollywood needs them lit internally so the camera can see the actor's faces, but it upsets the immersion when I see it.
Kubrick knew his stuff, no doubt about it. [sarcasm]Otherwise how could he have helped NASA fake those moon landings [/sarcasm]

Its one of the most poignant scenes in the film, all his crew have been murdered and Bowman listens to HAL regressing.
Agreed Kubrick is excellent, still laughing at Dr. Strangelove!

Next time on CuriousMarc I think we might see some Orbiter (hint at the end)


I'm following that whole AGC restoration series with lots of joy and sympathy (condolence, in case of Module B11, that is)

One of those arty 'short films' from YouTube



It has a wonderful mish-mash of Mercury, Gemini & Apollo footage at the start, the spacecraft seems to be a cross between Mercury and Gemini (It's definitely a two seater...)

And the plot, well you tell me...

As it is the 20th where I am at the moment...



And a trailer to remind us of all the non-Americans who helped in one way or another get Apollo 11 to the moon...
