Man with a Movie Camera

Man with a Movie Camera ★½

Review In A Nutshell:

Forgive me Letterboxd, for I have sinned.

Man with a Movie Camera is no doubt a groundbreaking feat for the documentary genre through the stripping of a conventional narrative and utilising natural elements to evoke emotion and poetic imagery, but it rarely left me captivated with what was delivered on screen; finding cohesion in themes but lack the power to surge them. I was left as a passive viewer throughout, constantly hoping for something to capture my attention.

I have prepared myself for the infinite lashes that is surely going to come my way.
