Day 77: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) + Au Hasard Balthazar (1966)

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and

Au Hasard Balthazar (1966)

– writing the essays

It’s important to prepare some articles I can publish, rather than just writing and writing, so I decided to spend a couple of days polishing the 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Au Hasard Balthazar essays.

Au Hasard Balthazar is an extraordinary film in terms of its conceit. It’s full of so many layers and has so much meaning buried in amongst its seemingly simple story of a donkey and his various owners.
