2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) charts a history of human evolution. From the dawn of man, to his journeys into space & to when the "Star Child" is born at the end. The film has a underlying theme of dehumanization by technology. The notorious computer HAL9000 has more warmth and personality than the human astronauts it supposedly is serving. The film also leaves the meaning of the Black, rectangular Alien Monoliths open for discussion. This theme, in part, is what made 2001 a film like no other film. Kubrick's film is nothing less than a cinematic milestone, puzzling, provocative, and perfect.
