If you watch Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, you’ll see 161 minutes of Keir Dullea drifting, often alone, through Discovery One. This clearly defined visual narrative painted an intriguing, and accurate, portrait of the future. But if you look at the film as it appears in Jason Shulman‘s series Photographs of Film, the narrative fades away. The movie is, instead, one scratchy, hazy frame. It’s mostly black and gray, but you can make out the three screens of the council room, the tiled floor of the Louis XVI bedroom, and HAL 9000’s camera eye, glowing like an ember.
