The film deals with thematic elements of human evolution, technology, artificial intelligence and extraterrestrial life, and is notable for its scientific realism, pioneering special effects, ambiguous imagery that is open-ended to a point approaching surrealism, sound in place of traditional narrative techniques, and minimal use of dialogue. Even now days that film is considered one icon of the classic cinema and thousand of people keep on viewing it. Extra info and images was taken from Wikipedia and Google. ENGLISH 2
