2.0 out of 5 stars over-rated, 15 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Man With A Movie Camera [1929] [DVD] (DVD)
I've wanted to watch this for years, and finally have. On the good side, it only wasted an hour; and actually the last 5 or 10 minutes was good quite experimental stuff, mostly using speeded-up film, an obvious influence on the much better and more recent Koyaanisqatsi and lots of other things. I had hoped and assumed the whole thing would be something like that.
The rest, however, is very straightforward and slow: film of workers standing at their machinery, trams moving along, a funeral etc, none of it filmed in a very artistic or unusual way and with little to commend it.

I understand everyone's entitled to an opinion but quality cinema isn't just about unique camera shots. While a silent film doesn't give you much else to pick faults with, it's what we can see and the depth of an image, no matter how it's captured. It means a lot more than you're picking up on, I think.
