The Day the Earth Stood Still

Movie LINK
(1951) Klaatu barada nikto! Well, now I understand -- not what it means, but what it's from at least. I can see why this is a classic of the sci-fi genre. It has great effects for back then, the music is simple and eerie and spares us from the overbearing music of many contemporary movies, the light/shadow and other patterns are hypnotic, plus there are a couple of closeups that are hyper-clear. Thinking back about the story, I'm not getting too much. But rest assured this movie is a visual treat in a myriad of ways. A must see in your movie history if you're a sci-fi fan.
