Something Wonderful: The Beauty of the Blizzard

An extraordinary film by Jamie Stuart. Not only is it a wonderful evocation of Dziga Vertov's 1929 silent film "Man With a Movie Camera," but consider that it was photographed during the Blizzard of 2010 and edited at lightning speed.

I have to disagree -- this film is edited at such a fast pace that it's like watching someone quickly shuffling postcards -- no time to see what the beauty is in the images, no evocation of the power and feeling of solitude that a blizzard creates. It's just a cuisinart-editing trick pony.

A very clever chap....and nobody gets blamed.
