A Man with a Movie Camera was, in 1929, a ground breaking documentary full of wild ideas about what film was (and wasn’t) and how movies could be made. It is considered a textbook for experimental and avante garde filmmaking, as well as a love letter to the city and socialist, industrial ideals.
I’m curious what were the moments that were most effective for you – when were you most interested in the movie? Were there scenes or moments that you feel like you see regularly in more contemporary films?
250 words minimum. As usual: movies in italics, no evaluative language, be specific about what you saw, use terminology from the book/lecture.
