Alan Berliner talking about Dziga Vertov’s ‘Man with A Movie Camera’
part experimental essay
part city symphony
— a virtuoso, cross-genre film that speaks fluently to filmmakers of all denominations
a temporal structure transfigured as musical form
also a day in the life of a city
interwoven with the rhythms of the life cycle
— a lyrical compendium of images from birth to death
taught me how to think cinematically
How one person alone with a camera could find beauty, meaning and metaphor in the world simply by immersing in the flow of daily life, and looking around.
the city was a studio;
his visual laboratory,
an unending source of transcendent detail and surprise.
