From here to eternity

I'm not going to put this down to the fact I am MTV generation or am simply too young appreciate such film making, because that would be simply untrue! I like the likes of Night Mail, Triumph of the Will and Nanook of the North!

Anyway fact of the matter is I really did not like this film! I thought it was one of the longest 45+ minutes of my life!

Some of the shots are too long and should have been cut many seconds before and I thought the structure could have been better, but hey I appreciate these were the early days in documentary film making and this was John Grierson's first effort!

4/10
