The man with the movie camera

I think, this film is masterpiece. (By the way, it isn't Polish film, it was created in the USSR). Vertov is indeed a great director. Unfortunately, he is not as popular as Eisenstein.
Montage is unique; magic, impressive view of the world. Different points of view to the world around: our eyes and "cinema eye". After viewing of this film you will see our world in a new fashion! Maybe Vertov's technique is the cinema of the future?

Currently, "Man with the Movie Camera" would be my submission for the greatest film ever made.

Amazing that this film was made in the 20's itself.
