2001: A Space Odyssey ★★★★★

The defining work of pure science fiction in film history. This movie knows exactly what it wants to do, and it goes well. It starts with the discovery of the first tool in human evolutionary history, and jumps to mankind's furthest journey through space, all the while following a signal from an artifact found in various periods throughout time. A true masterpiece that is a wonder to look at.
