My apologies, I assumed the '2001: A Space Odyssey' cinema release was Kubrick's, I didn't realize it belonged to someone else...
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) is a science fiction novel by Arthur C. Clarke. It was developed concurrently with Stanley Kubrick's film version and published after the release of the film. The story is based in part on various short stories by Clarke, most notably "The Sentinel" (written in 1948 for a BBC competition, but first published in 1951 under the title "Sentinel of Eternity"). For an elaboration of Clarke and Kubrick's collaborative work on this project, see The Lost Worlds of 2001, Arthur C. Clarke, Signet, 1972.
2001: A Space Odyssey is a 1968 British-American science fiction film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick. The screenplay was co-written by Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, and was partially inspired by Clarke's short story The Sentinel. Clarke concurrently wrote the novel of the same name which was published soon after the film was released.
I didn't know that Geoffrey Unsworth (the cinematographer) was an alien.
One of the most highly regarded works of alien cinematography comes to us in the form of Arthur C. Clarke & Stanley Kubrick's : 2001: A Space Odyssey.
1. A large block of stone, especially one used in architecture or sculpture.
2. Something, such as a column or monument, made from one large block of stone.
3. Something suggestive of a large block of stone, as in immovability, massiveness, or uniformity.

I enjoy this series, because it fits my over-active imagination and helps me fantasize that maybe aliens have visited the earth for some reason or another.
