The white suite where the hero of KUBRICK 's ODYSSEE ends up, a product stemming from the fantastic, is the suite real? If so, one naively wonders how he arrived there, after crossing infinity. Is it a dream? Or a final review of his own past? If so, everything would become arbitrary.
It is more than that. KUBRICK takes his hero over the threshold and into his inner abode. Could it be that this final dwelling place is an artificial image compared with the true depiction of an external reality? No, for here it acquires the status of reality on a par with natural or social reality.
