Review of I Am Cuba
Review of I Am Cuba by Ian Johnston at Not Coming To A Theater Near You. "...Mikhail Kalatozov is more than Dziga Vertov’s Man With The Movie Camera, he’s a man in love with the movie camera. His is a camera that flies, plunges, sweeps, twirls, swings, dances, tracks, booms—it’s a dazzling gymnastics of the movie camera that intoxicates the viewer in the same way that Kalatozov is intoxicated by it. Movement is all, in fact there’s a sense that the frankly simplistic characters in the separate stories that make up I Am Cuba are mere starting points around which the camera can dance and from which it can spin off its choreography of camera movement."
