2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY

(USA, 1968) 148 minutes

Sometime in the distant past, someone or something nudged human evolution by placing a black monolith on Earth. That evolutionary spark imparted to humanity's ancestors enabled humankind to eventually reach the moon's surface, where yet another monolith is uncovered - one that, once uncovered, signals that humankind has evolved into a spacefaring species and is ready for first contact.
