    Wonderful debut by Makavejev. An array of cinematic ideas and imagery with great toppling sound design. Beautiful shots of Milena Dravic.

  3. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Man Is Not a Bird

    Hipnosis ideológica, así la llamó Makavejev cuando se refería a su película y sus personajes que actuaban y se comportaban a merced de algo que estaba por encima de sus propios pensamientos. Todos hacen los suyo, se enamoran, se emborrachan, se meten en grescas, pero por encima hay una autoridad que indirectamente va empujándolos a obecer o accionar según las necesidades de esa otra GRAN autoridad marxista-socialista

  4. Sunrise's rating of the film Man Is Not a Bird

    Makavejev crafts a rather interesting and saddening montage allegory in which workers are seduced so wholeheartedly in the philosophy of their work that it replaces the sexual act. Shots of machinery that intercut with lovemaking convey an sterile integration and execution of a mechanical phallus, yet result in impotence of philosophy, despite societal embrace and success.

    Does anyone know the title of the song sung by Fatima in the bar early on in the film?

  8. Stu Witmer's rating of the film Man Is Not a Bird

    Nice little movie with some really great shots. I particularly enjoyed the incredulous looks of the background people in the street scenes. The music seems to have little to do with the action on screen... with the exception of the Beethoven!

  9. K C's rating of the film Man Is Not a Bird

    This film explorers the simple question of "What is a class system?" using a love story between a beautician and an engineer. Is a class system defined by a job? Ethnicity? Wealth? Sex? The themes were good, but the plot could have been stitched together tighter. (n.b. I am using a new FB app to rate movies)
