  1. ujjwal's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    cine kino. vertov in the twenties was doing which gave birth to the ideas of the 'observational'. The crafty eXcellence one one side, he is raising questions about what cinema really is. Going beyond 'acting, theater,' and so on, long before those discussions had started. and a relfeXive piece just 30 years into cinema, makes very interesting comments on the form. brilliance, a genius of a film. thank you mr. vertov.

  2. Rui's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    One of the greatest things I’ve ever seen. This still feels fresh and modern today! An extraordinary glimpse into the life of people living close to a century ago but, most of all, a passionate an energetic display of the potential of film. A true masterpiece.

  5. fearraigh's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    It’s of its time but also timeless. A film that changed the thinking about filming and cinema and which continues to ripple with possibilities when viewed today. One of the finest, most influential pieces of film art ever created. Fascinating that its director of photography Boris Kaufman would later work on films as diverse as Vigo’s L’Atalante and Kazan’s On the Waterfront.

    Je sais que c'est pas bien mais c'ést tellement bien (comme ça) pourtant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvEuD29bw9k Version mise en musique par le cinematic orchestra

  7. LeStalker's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    Un film magistral, impressionnant, euphorisant. Un documentaire d'une incroyable force où il est question de vie et de mort, de sensualité, des hommes et des femmes, de la frénésie du rythme de notre vie sur terre, de la société du spectacle, de la manière de faire un film remarquable. Peut être bien LE film.

  9. edpwilson's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    Mesmerised the whole way through and a masterclass in film editing (watched the Cinematic Orchestra-scored version)

  11. Ben Nash's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    Watch with the original score.

  12. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    Bittersweet watching this willfully kinetic film knowing the dreary miseries that lay ahead. It strikes with the force of a revelation that you are not granted full access to, but that's history's fault, not Vertov's. I love all the wild weird bits (the working hands montage with the subliminal shot of the gun; the sexualised sports sequence; all the daft but visionary superimposition tricks). Stirring and oddly fun!

  13. Alex Hall's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    What a feat, and a feast. Particularly amazing with the Cinematic Orchestra soundtrack.

  17. Juliana Senra's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    The only art form cinema is unable to detach itself from is poetry.

  18. FISCHER's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    >>> Un des cinquante films essentiels du Septième Art qui se présente comme un magistral poème urbain, une inoubliable ode au cinématographe et un discret et pertinent hommage à la technique du montage, du trucage et de la mise en scène... www.cinefiches.com

  20. Superfrog's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    Technically Stunning and probably more than a century early, it is a bit like a frantic version of Giallo's visitors. It does advertise that it does not have a script or explanations at the start, I would have liked a heavy layer of symbolism on top for full marks. The best rushes do not make a film by themselves. Interesting to see after L'enfer d'Henri-George Clouzot.

  21. Gabriele Malagoli's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    Never heard a more engaging soundtrack in any other silent movie

  22. vizija's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    stop motion art, nice try...

  23. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    An amazing avant-garde documentary following a man and his movie camera. We, the viewer, see the cities he visits with his eyes. Or his camera's eye. Or his camera's eye perceived through the man's eyes. This eye shows us the city, its architecture, its people, its streets and its machinery. The film uses a lot of editing techniques used today like slow motion, stop motion and fast cuts. An essential experience.
