2001: A Space Odyssey

I am visiting my parents in the same house where I grew up. Looking at some of my things I found a sketchbook which I received as a present in December of 2000. Many of the drawings in it are dated at the end of that year or beginning of 2001. Looking at the futuristic scenes of Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968, released before the moon landing) ... one can only feel that it is all a thing of the past and the future is no longer what it used to be. I simply feel that our lives have certainly taken spatial odysseys! Still, Kubrik's film resonates, in particular as its ending was incredibly open (way beyond any french film), that scene of the embryonic "Starchild" in which the film abruptly ends might have been a de-ja vu of my own existence.
