Dziga Vertov Uniunea Sovietică, 1929

Stefan Drees's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

One of the masterpieces of experimental cinema with some similarities to Walter Ruttmann's "Berlin, die Sinfonie der Großstadt". Nyman's score surely has its strong moments; but it is also problematic because - although like Vertov montage using repetitions, loops and rhythmic shifts - it doesn't match the avantgardism of the incredible movie on the structural level.
