    E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

    ★★★★★

    What is the best age to watch E.T.? The answer clearly is any age.

    One of my best friends in this world, who is a fellow movie/Spielberg lover like me, once told me in a random conversation of ours that E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial did not "do all that much" for him and I felt like I'd been run over by a truck several times over.

    Man with a Movie Camera

    ★★★★★

    "Attention Viewers! This film is an experiment in cinematic communication of real events without the help of intertitles, without the help of a story, without the help of theatre..."

    It has been 93 years since Dziga Vertov gave the film world and the world at large, Человек с кино-аппаратом (Man With a Movie Camera). Though the USSR may have long since evaporated from the world's geographical maps, this film that was made as a way to show the ideal of…
