Three allegories-an Odysseus (Homer) allegory, a man-machine symbiosis (Arthur Clarke) allegory, and a Zarathustra (Nietzsche) allegory-are simultaneously concealed and revealed by well over 200 highly imaginative and sometimes devilishly clever symbols. In bringing Kubrick’s secrets to light, Wheat builds a powerful case for his assertion that 2001 is the “grandest motion picture ever filmed.”
