An incredible piece of cinema this, telling the story of human development with one of the most famous jump cuts in the whole of cinema. Stanley Kubrick's film is full of arresting images, made all the more impressive seeing it was made back when special effect were very much in their infancy. The 70 mm version was screened in New Zealand during 1988 but Daza missed it; that was a mistake.
