Dziga Vertov’s Man With A Movie Camera gets The Masters Of Cinema treatment from Eureka Entertainment, namely a four disc limited edition release featuring both the DVD and blu ray discs.
Man With A Movie Camera is often heralded as one of the greatest documentaries of all time. The London Evening Standard says of the Eureka release: “Often described as the best documentary ever made, Dziga Vertov’s 1929 film – shot in Russia as Stalin got busy – is even more astonishing in this great restoration”.
DVD Beaver says “Trust Masters of Cinema to do this to the max. This 4-disc set is the best, IMO and a must own. Our absolute highest recommendation!” They also mentioned that the 100 page booklet is a real gem.
