    This is production design porn! Please keep it coming. Can’t wait to read your longer post about production design. Great job at finding some gorgeous stills.

    2001: A Space Odyssey is just amazing! One of my own personal favourites.. The first movie I haven’t seen, maybe I should check it out – that is one killer living room. But as said before, very VERY good choices indeed.
