Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Man With A Movie Camera  [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.
