    Man with a Movie Camera

    ★★★★★

    A Man With A Movie Camera is a breath of fresh air in an industry that is cluttered with subpar contributions. When I tell you this film had me in it's grips from start to end, I truly mean it.

The way the story is just thrown together only adds to the realism that Gerald Kargl already achieves with the way it is shot and…
