2001

What I love the most about the film 2001 was its main theme which was represented by a massive monolithic alien object. The monolithic object was show three times throughout the film. ┬áEvery time the monolith was show, an eventful human millstone in evolution took place. ┬áThe first appearance of the monolith represented the change of ape to man representing human past. Second was man’s accomplishment of traveling to the moon. This represented present humans. ┬áThird was man’s ability to travel distant planet, or possibly even intergalactic travel. ┬áThis represented human future. The monolith was found floating by Jupiter. The movie showed a great representation of human evolution. Using the strange monolithic object as a means of symbolizing human evolution made it even more interesting and mysterious.
