    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    Among other things, I had forgotten how funny this movie was, the dry satirical bite of the Heywood Floyd section having been totally lost on me when I first watched this movie as a wee bairn (and, tbh, having happily slept through that section on most subsequent rewatches). Humans have managed to make their environment more anodyne and comfortable between the "Dawn of Man" and "2001," but human behavior itself has hardly changed at all, the petty passive-aggression of modern diplomacy a barely more sophisticated alternative to bonking each other over the head with clubs.
