The Man with a Movie Camera
(Dziga Vertov, 1929).
Dazzling as it is poetic, Vertovs silent masterpiece is also the Soviet cinemas greatest achievementa self-reflexive documentary in the guise of a self-deconstructing city symphony, matching the rhythms of a day to the cycle of life and the mechanism of filmmaking to the logic of production. The live Alloy Orchestra noise score is based on Vertovs notes.
