Faz hoje 50 anos que 2001: Odisseia no Espaço (a versão original de 70 mm), de Stanley Kubrick, estreou no Uptown Theatre em Washington.
Para festejar, recordamos uma das personagens principais: o computador Hal 9000, aqui.
For a character that’s been endlessly caricatured — in “The Simpsons,” “South Park,” television commercials — HAL has inspired a surprisingly rich range of adjectives over the years. He and his voice have been described as aloof, eerily neutral, silky, wheedling, controlled, baleful, unisex, droll, soft, conversational, dreamy, supremely calm and rational. He’s discursive, suave, inhumanly cool, confident, superior, deadpan, sinister, patronizing and asexual.
