who cares, in australia we never had the black figures and all that stupid shit. the fact is all that is just an american thing and i believe we got the same version as europe and no one cried and well that's that.

obviously he would've recut it but he didn't and this fuckfest is the only certain director's cut.

I don't have the link to that interview. I had to copy from Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2000. It might still be online, might not.

You may purchase (at minimal cost and hassle) Kubrick's first documentaries along with "Fear and Desire" at:

The quality is not excellent, but watchable nonetheless.

i can't explain the bone/satellite cut, it is a bit awkward. the intention i assumed was that we switched to the other side, coming down, mirror like. in time also.

I agree with that as an explaination for the bone-to-ship cut.  I don't, however, believe that it is an imperpect cut.  Kubrick worked harder on 2001 than any movie in his career.  If its in the movie, that's how he wanted it.

u know, i was thinkin about it and technically it's actually a well made shot.

with the blue background if we just followed it uncut goin up and then coming down it would be very hard to notice when it starts to fall, there's no point of reference. so he lets it leave the top of the frame, and enter the bottom after the cut, then rise a bit and fall. and making it a mirror image enforces that it's travelling in a reverse/opposite direction.

so u see, the shot is good.

sphinx thinks the shot is made to represent that spaceships and bones are both tools and that we haven't changed a bit since that big monolith came and turned us all into planet-killing monsters;  sphinx also thinks this is obvious and hopes you all thought of this before

technically speaking sphinx adores the shot and if he had a can of shots that he adored this shot would certainly be treated with an acid-free preserver and placed in the can

I just think that was Kubrick. He liked perfect concepts, but he didn't always seek technical perfection. In fact I think a lot of the time he liked those rough edges.

As for the bone...I always took the jump cut of the bone twirling to suggest it wasn't Moonwatcher's only attempt -- man was always reaching higher and higher. The other thing: The cut to the NUCLEAR SATELITE occurs while the bone is making its descent. Gravity. On Earth there's gravity. Now we're viewing a nuclear weapon -- cutting from man's first killing devise to his final. Does what goes up come down?

I sure hope W. gets our space program going full speed again. Cause you know this is the real goal.
