Kubrick's Double-edged View of Technology and the Future

In his “trilogy” of science-fiction films--Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, and 2001: A Space Odyssey--Stanley Kubrick offers three competing views of the future and our relationship to technology, ranging from dire warnings to more hopeful visions. This discussion ultimately will focus on 2001 as both a cautionary tale about the over-reliance on technology as well as an optimistic musing on the potentially transcendent future of humanity.
