Dir. Dziga Vertov (1929).
One of the most seminal (and enjoyable) films in the history of cinema—the sheer liveliness of Vertov’s silent masterpiece remains undiminished. His travelogue record of a day in the life of the modern city (mostly Moscow) combines revolutionary aesthetics with radical politics to brilliant effect.
