Conclusion

2001: A Space Odyssey uses the visual medium to convey a story about the place of mankind in the universe. From our humble beginnings in the prehistoric ages, to a space faring future that we are still looking forward to a year before the actual year 2001, and finally the next stage in human evolution. 2001 has very little dialog for a movie of it's length, and as such has to communicate through the visual medium. 2001 succeeds in creating awe and hope for the future through artistic expression.
