Hi Jaime,

You can find an interesting analysis/interpretation about "Man with a Movie
Camera" in the first chapter/introduction of "The Language of New Media" by
Lev Manovich. It's an archaeological media approach with a new point of
view of Cinema History. Manovich uses "Man with a Movie Camera" as a
"starting point" for his epistemology. Despite a systematically and a
methodically approach (it's not my way of thinking), there's some great
notes about the film, especially his "reflexivity aspects".

*Cf. "The Language of New Media" by Lev Manovich / Prologue: Vertov's
Dataset. *

Regards,
