Could be one of the few "perfect" films ever made, 21 December 2000
Author: almacal from Scotland

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.
