Could be one of the few "perfect" films ever made
21 December 2000 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

What a delight. Beautiful, poetic, rhythmic editing. Certainly the best all - out documentary EVER made. In fact, the perfect documentary. Eisenstein may have invented Narrative style but Vertov is the master of montage. Beautiful, sadly obscure stuff.
