patchouly, "technology" specifically is not the point of the two shots being cut together.

The point was in: "What does man make with technology?"
If you can`t see what kind of sat, you won`t get the point.

VV Makes sense to me @aj! I want to study film too... *sigh* someday!

It takes the viewer "out" of the scene but that`s NOT a bad thing! Being a "helpless bystander" can be useful in conveying a powerful message, I`d say.

Well, just LOOK!

I learned about One point perspective in contemporary film study.

It`s a great way to film a scene, but it lets the brain know, without a doubt, that the scene is being filmed.

I know, that doesn`t make sense, but it kinda does in a way.

I am a fan, but I don`t like his movies as stories. Surreal, poorly told to the point of confusion. If you feel a movie would be enhanced with mild-altering drugs, then it`s probably not told right. The first 4 times I saw 2001ASO, I started to nod off during the beginning of the star child sequence and was convinced I had slept through the important bit. I wasn`t until years later that I stayed awake through it all and I realised that I hadn`t missed a bit!

HOWEVER, he is a truly great cinematographer. Great!

You have to know what kind of satellite to understand the point but you can`t effing see it on the film."

You don`t have to know what kind of satellite. He was showing how the apes developed the ability to use tools and then, millions of years later, that ability results in technology, far enough advanced, that we can live in space. The monolith brought tools to man. The bone represents the start of the technological journey of man, ending with the current technological advancements (or his idea of what it would be like in 2001).

Can you believe someone was so bored they had time to put this together?

Kitteh, "was" and I have the opposing opinion.
Watching 2001, without reading the book or getting a spoiler, what was the point to the ape-man throwing the bone and the film cutting to a satellite?
You have to know what kind of satellite to understand the point but you can`t effing see it on the film.
