The Wolf at the Door draws on intensive study of all of Kubrick's films, interviews with members of Kubrick's immediate family, and archival research in the United States, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, and Israel.It is therefore highly ironic that when confronted with a different analysis of the problem by a computer back on earth, HAL blames human error for the other computera#39;s aquot;mistake. ...
