Man with a Movie Camera ★★★★★

Dziga Vertov's ability to create genuinely hypnotic visual poetry out of seemingly anything is taken to an entirely defferent level in his unadulterated masterpiece Man with a Movie Camera. Even ignoring it's seminal position in film history, this film is a visceral experience rivaling any we've seen in the near century since. Plus, it's probably not a stretch to say that this and Un Chien Andalou are the instigating forces behind the majority of my favorite innovations happening throughout cinema today.
