Cinquenta anos após seu lançamento, 2001: Uma odisseia no espaço segue desafiando e hipnotizando os espectadores. Neste trabalho de fôlego, Michael Benson esmiúça os bastidores das filmagens e, baseado em entrevistas com Arthur C. Clarke e Christiane Kubrick, investiga seus mistérios e significados. Em 1964, Stanley Kubrick e Arthur C. Clarke se juntaram para, nas palavras do diretor, "fazer o primeiro filme de ficção científica que não seja considerado lixo". Quatro anos depois, 2001: Uma odisseia no espaço seria lançado. Se hoje o filme da lendária dupla é reconhecido como uma obra-prima, a crítica da época desmereceu o lançamento como um tedioso exercício de estilo. Neste livro, o fotógrafo e escritor Michael Benson reconta a extraordinária história da criação do filme, de sua gênese ao lançamento em 1968, com anos de atraso e um orçamento estourado em milhões de dólares. Benson entrevistou longamente Clarke, bem como Christiane, viúva de Kubrick, e Doug Trumbull, o criador dos pioneiros efeitos-especiais de 2001, conseguindo captar não apenas a epopeia cinematográfica mas também toda a complexidade da relação de Kubrick e Clarke. O resultado é um misto de making of, ensaio e análise, oferecendo um retrato aprofundado de um dos mais formidáveis filmes já feitos e a dimensão do seu impacto no cinema e no imaginário moderno.

In The Hands Of A Sadist…

First, he bound and beat his girlfriend, a 43-year-old librarian. Then he went after her teenaged daughter-warning her, "Scream and I will kill you both"-before knocking her unconscious. When the teenager awoke, he proceded to rape her. And in a final horrifying act of depravity, he forced the girl to watch as he slit her mother’s throat. But the killing didn’t stop there...

In The Crosshairs Of A Killer…

Stephen Stanko was described as "a perfect gentleman" who "seemed so pleasant…and so normal." But behind Stanko’s mild-mannered appearance, round spectacles, and quiet intelligence was a coldblooded ex-convict who kept a grisly scrapbook on serial killers-and convinced everyone he was a nice guy-until he killed and killed again.

On The Trail Of A Psycho…

A well-orchestrated manhunt caught up with Stanko, who tried to get away with his crimes by pleading insanity. But the jury saw through his ruse and the ruthless killer was sentenced to death.

Denise Amber Lee was a 21-year-old happily married mother of two little boys. She had her whole life ahead of her…until an intruder broke into her Florida home. Within a few short hours she was savagely terrorized, murdered, and buried naked in a shallow grave near a desolate swamp.


Michael King, a 38-year-old out-of-work plumber, was a ticking time bomb. For years, neighbors called the police on King, complaining that, among other things, he'd thrown battery acid in their pool and slashed their tires. Denise’s fate was far worse. In a horrifying act of cruelty, King bound her with duct tape, raped her repeatedly, then shot her dead.


Incredibly, Denise managed to call 911 twice during her abduction. Eyewitnesses and her distraught husband also called, but a slow, inefficient system tragically failed her. As a result, Florida passed the Denise Lee Law, setting voluntary standards for 911 systems. King was sentenced to death. But for Denise and her loving family, it was too late.

Die For Love

Sarah Ludemann was new to love. The Pinellas, Florida, 17-year old was a late bloomer. When she fell for a boy she was blind to the world of sex, drugs and drama swirling around her. Soon, Sarah had a bitter enemy in 18-year-old waitress Rachel Wade; both girls were head-over-heels with a cocky two-timer named Joshua Camacho. On a warm spring night, their passions erupted into violence. A knife flashed under the streetlights. When the fight was over one girl was dead and the other charged with murder. In an emotion-packed courtroom the whole story took shape--a troubling tale of conflicting lives, tangled sexual affairs, and the high price of having the right feelings for the wrong guy. . .
