Alik Sakharov, ASC — the main director of photography on HBO’s The Soprano — reveals that the show’s controversial ending was partly inspired by the mindbending climax of Stanley Kubrick’s metaphysical space opera 2001: A Space Odyssey — an homage he planned carefully with the show’s creator, David Chase.
