I didn't find it a mere satire of 2001, but having a life of its own. There is no Space Child and weird after-discussions of giggling aliens heard off camera, wrinkled astronaut eating formal dinner in a French bedroom,,, We all know that actually showing any alien is laughable--it's either CGI or a guy in a rubber suit. Weather balloon will do. As with DOCTOR STRANGELOVE, we see how close WE are to having OUR rideable robotic H-bombs get into a nasty argument with US. One can try to make a parallel list of scenes with this and 2001, but that would be a waste of time. Let the characters talk and act, even when they are literally frozen. Icy Fun!!!!

I first saw this movie while serving in the US Navy in Japan. As we were forward deployed we would be out at sea for over a month at a time and away form port for 3 month (followed by a 2-3 weeks replenishment and then back out to sea). I, and the crew, sat there one night and watched our lives being played out in this movie. While to many this is a funnny, yet dark, movie, to me it is what people go through who are trapped in a situation that isolates them from life. Was Mr. Carpenter having fun with 2001? I think it is in there. I see it more as the struggles of person against person not man against machine. he is showing that as a person is more isloated form life that the inner person comes out - and sometimes that inner child/person needs some help. This movie is about doing your duty and still getting the short end of the deal. Do I know Mr. Carpenter? No, i have never met him. However, I have a cousin who went to school with him.
