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. Every time the monolith was show, an eventful human millstone in evolution took place. The 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. Third was man’s ability to travel distant planet, or possibly even intergalactic travel. This 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.
