Chelovek s kino-apparatom (1929)

a.k.a Man with a Movie Camera

A cameraman wanders around Moscow, Kharkov, Kiev and Odessa with a camera slung over his shoulder, documenting urban life with dazzling invention.

Flops

This was way ahead of its time. The music in the Cinematic Orchestra version definitely adds to it. Almost makes for a psychedelic vibe at times.

A great film. Insane montage and groundbreaking camera techniques. Definitely worth the hour it takes to watch this gem.
