"To recognize [Vertov's] centrality is to open oneself to the possibility that the most passionate and inventive movies of the past eight decades may not have been the narrative features at all, but rather the documentaries and the experimental films, the seven-minute animations and the four-minute rock videos. . . . Vertov's case, as the distinguished film scholar and theorist Annette Michelson suggests in her lengthy and brilliantly argued introduction to this collection of the filmmaker's manifestos, journal excerpts, and production notes, is a special one." -- J. Hoberman, The New Republic
