Culture Maven review: "Man with a Movie Camera"
Film Review and Podcast by c d kaplan
A guy never knows as much as he thinks he knows.
It sure applies to me.
I took several film study courses in college. I have read a lot about cinema and the history of film since. And, of course, watched a lot o’ flicks.
But, truth be told, until I read that this 1929 Russian documentary by Dziga Vertov is the most studied film in colleges across America, I had never heard of it.
So I watched.
It is seriously groundbreaking, and well worth a look see. It’s available on youtube and Amazon Prime.
For reasons why I suggest you take the 66 minutes to view it, listen to my podcast above.
