Summary

Fifty years after its appearance, 2001: A Space Odyssey remains a film that commands attention. Michael Benson's Space Odyssey, an epic-like account of the film's planning, making, and reception, will hardly answer all of the questions that haunt it, but his thoroughly researched, multivoiced narrative should become essential reading for anyone wanting to penetrate the mysteries that continue to swirl around this work and its creator.
