Works extremely well a companion piece to Jerome Agel’s The Making of Kubrick’s 2001.

L'analisi di Chion non tralascia l'aspetto sonoro del film, campo in cui il critico è specializzato. Nel consueto stile della Lindau, i fotogrammi del film, questa volta a colori, accompagnano l'analisi dell'autore. Un capitoletto conclusivo prende in considerazione Eyes Wide Shut tracciando alcune interessanti connessioni con 2001.
