    I’m divorced. That has nothing to do with 2001: A Space Odyssey, but there is a little anecdote that connects the two.

    2001 is my favorite film. I discovered it in the right summer of my life and it’s stuck with me ever since.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, entering the ring with 4 Best Director nominations and zero wins, the man who gave you nightmares with Alien, who gave you “the Blade Runner aesthetic”, who gave you the rare double Lead Actress Oscar noms for Thelma and Louise, the man who asked “are you not entertained”, the bringer of superior Director’s cuts, the cranky Englishman who hates the upper-crust, standing at a staggering five-foot-nine, at 83 years young and still going strong, the County Durham…
