The experimental nature of the film makes it difficult to grade, but its importance and forms of stretching the medium's early legs is captivating. It may run a little long, but it's also hard to knock the film for that when it's trying to do something that was so new at the time.

It's technically so impressive that it's hard to even think about anything else. I think there were moments where things came together in a moving way, but there's also a whole lot that feels like it's just pointless b-roll.

Shockingly visionary filmmaking given its date; overflowing with ideas. The Alloy Orchestra demolishes much of the atmosphere with its cartoonish and cheaply produced soundtrack.

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(...)

So basically this is the invention of cinema when it come to filming and editing. The soundtrack done by Cinematic Orchestra suits it well, but it's not perfect since it doesn't always allow you to be immersed. Must see.

A meta and self-reflexive testament for the distinction of cinema, demonstrating the time-and-space altering effects of montage. Ode to the artisanal mechanics of celluloid, especially reverant when considered against the rise of digital filmmaking. It is high-concept and avant-garde - navel-gazing, perhaps - but it's joyous and exhilarating, pulsing with life and rhythm. A transportive time capsule, as fun to watch as it is important in academia, and essential viewing for any film lover.

A film about using cinematography to capture the essence of a city in motion. Dziga Vertov creates a uniquely humbling portrait of a city that appears to be inexorably moving forward - its industry, technology and life are all rapidly interspersed with insights into the cameraman's imaginative plight to achieve this. Initially watched this with a live score by Harmonie Band, which oscillated between being really jaunty and evoking a weird sense of disquiet.

A movie from the dawn of cinema, it is obsessed with showing motion and technological progress. Some genuinely impressive shots are achieved, but the real charm of this film is the way we are shown the cameraman himself getting into position or superimposed into a shot. This is the birth of self-aware film-making.
