  1. 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)

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

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

    Watch with the original score.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

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

    Never heard a more engaging soundtrack in any other silent movie

    stop motion art, nice try...

  15. 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.

  19. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    So many arresting shots and sequences. So many great contrasts and comparisons between the clean and the dirty, birth and death, film-editing and spinning thread, etc. And through it all, Vertov keeps his audience aware of the camera, as he sprinkles omniscient overlays throughout the film.

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

    4 stars and not 5 because Dziga Vertov released this movie in 1929 without any soundtracks.

  21. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

    Our Daily Free Stream: Vertov - Man With A Movie Camera. Leicht vorstellbar, wie sehr das Publikum im Jahr 1929, dem Jahr als Vertovs Man With A Movie Camera ins Kino kam, überfordert gewesen sein muss. Während der Stummfilm-Ära war das Publikum gewohnt, dass Einstellungen zehn Sekunden oder länger andauerten. Hier waren es zwei Sekunden - eine Geschwindigkeit, die uns moderne Blockbuster zumuten(...)
