Человек с киноаппаратом

Dziga Vertov Soviet Union, 1929

Kai White's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

One of the more unique experiences in film, Vertov (with a huge assist from his brother as the rather acrobatic cameraman) gives us a day in the life of Russia. For good measure, there's also a dancing crawfish. This is the rare film that seeks to turn convention upside down, and I'd say it manages that feat rather gleefully.
