Episode 50 – A Space Odyssey

As close in on our celebration of the 40th anniversary of Star Trek: The Motion Picture we take some time to discuss one of the all-time great movies of the science fiction genre with a direct influence on the revived Stare Trek film made eleven years later: Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Derek, Terry and Graham discuss the production, themes and structure of a film that defies the usual conventions of the cinema to deliver what is as much an art installation as it is a film.
