FilmEdie's rating of the film Man With a Movie Camera

Should we find ourselves in some godforsaken, post-apocalyptic future, where film is dead and long forgotten, let this be the one surviving print. A Rosetta Stone for the language of cinema. And film would be born again! Having said that (and risking blasphemy) I'm fascinated by the idea of a newer iteration of the project: (Person) with a Digital Camera; the linguistic evolution of film in the post-mechanical world.
