Man With a Movie Camera
Dir. Dziga Vertov (1929). Evoking the sensory bombardment of urban life with strategies of visual analogy so intricate that they are still yet to be named, Vertovs silent masterpiece is at once Whitman-esque documentary-portrait of the Soviet people, self-reflexive essay on cinematic representation, ode to the transformative power of human labor, and cubo-kaleidoscopic city symphony taking parallel action to the thirdor fourthdimension.
