Analisi di un capolavoro

Posso affermare di avere poche fissazioni, freudiane e non, ma una di queste è sicuramente il cinema di Kubrick. Si tratta di una fissazione estetica, che riempie i miei occhi di bellezza e meraviglia, che bombarda il mio nervo ottico con immagini che placano la mia parte più ossessivo compulsiva; è una fissazione intellettuale, perché mi spinge in territori che probabilmente non avrei mai esplorato da solo; è anche una fissazione umana, perché dietro la perfezione tecn
The single best volume on Kubrick. Chion, a renowned French artist and critic, is brilliant and his analysis manages to shed light in places where others have invariably failed. A particularly fascinating section is the discussion of the use of music in 2001. The close reading of every scene is also very enlightening. Works extremely well a companion piece to Jerome Agel’s The Making of Kubrick’s 2001.
Straightforward, interesting interpretation of the film. Worth looking at if you want more insight into "2001."
