What are people saying?

  • Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Forward, Soviet!

    Dziga Vertove directed this early Soviet documentary to demonstrate the achievements of the Moscow Municipal Council in the lead-up to the elections in 1926. By contrasting former hardships with current progress, Vertov hails modern progress of the council, while spending hardly any time with the council at all. More overtly propagandist and less dynamic than his more experimental docs like MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA.
