Man With a Movie Camera


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.
