Can't really prove it because Kubrick was a recluse who didn't seem to like talking about what he "meant" a whole lot, but considering that one of the big themes of the movie is humanity's relationship with technology, the fact that we have on one hand a charismatic, likeable AI and on the other two isolated, dehumanized actual people whose jobs more or less amount to mindless repetitive janitor shit kind of makes it obvious.
>>13739973 It may have been Clarke's idea, but Kubrick really brought the scene to life. It's what the movie was meant to do, it draws you emotionally into this world. It's all the more profound (maybe not for you autists) that you feel for HAL's demise.
Maybe y'all should watch 2010 and have it spoon fed to you.
>>13736730 >Is it bad that I felt more during Hal's death than any of the humans?
No that was clearly the intent by Kubrick. Throughout the entire movie the human characters act more mechanical than the robotic character HAL. Even down to their speech.
>>13740079 Kubrick kept Clark in the dark about the plot in the movie. They are essentially two different canons. The book doesn't explain the movie at all and Clark didn't know what the movie meant either. Kubrick was a huge dick to him. It's actually pretty funny when you read about it.
>>13740079 Kubrick's movies are really enjoyable to me because of my literal autism. 2001 is filled with so many visual patterns and encoding, like how there are monoliths everywhere. The patterns repeat through all his movies too, Full Metal Jacket has a very obvious Monolith and even has the 7 diamond that preceed the monolith. The pyramid shaped framing is another big one.
If you're interested in shit like this you should search Rob Ager or Collative Learning on youtube. Sadly a lot of his videos aren't free but he should have a bunch of good stuff.
Kubrick sounds like he could have been autistic himself.
>>13740376 The man was unsatisfied with regular store storage boxes for his archives, so he had ones built to his exact specifications, measurements and his own patented design. The manufacturer that made said boxes complained about the customer being incredibly nitpicking and perfectionist, but concluded that were really good boxes. Kubrick was definitely on the higher functioning end of the spectrum.
