Re: 2001 on the Big Screen
^ I would definitely call Frank Poole's death scene a violent one.
As for corruption: HAL was told of the Monolith's true purpose (i.e. the big one at the end of the film) but was ordered to keep it secret from the rest of the crew - and that directly led to HAL's breakdown and murder of the crew. That definitely sounds fishy to me.
