Stanley Kubrick directed 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). He died 666 days before January 1, 2001 – the date setting for this film. He was extremely suspicious of centralized banking systems.
It is rumored that he filmed the Apollo moon landings. Dark Side of the Moon is a French mockumentary by director William Karel. The basic premise for the film is the theory that the television footage from the Apollo 11 Moon landing was faked and actually recorded in a studio by the CIA with help from director Stanley Kubrick.
