why this
Russian Ark is one of the few first-person movies that work. Oh, and it was shot in one continuous take.
Down to a sunless sea.
Actually (to be a bit of a jerk for a moment) being shot in one long take kind of works if you are going to be a POV cam because then you can treat it like theatre: what the cam sees is the stage, all else is backstage where you can do constume changes and pull all the stage ropes.
Don't just tell us the facts; tell us the memes, tell us the archetypes, tell us the catchy ideas and symbolic roles that get planted in pe
Platypus!
It's pretty impressive. I've only seen the movie once (and honestly, I can't really imagine to watch it more than once,) but it's interesting, and I can imagine history buffs could get a kick out of it.
Wow, this sounds like something worth watching. It should be well known, if not being a good movie (I haven't seen it yet and so can't say if it is or not), but certainly for what it has done.

why this
I learned a lot about Russia from it. The ending was confusing, though.

I think it's no coincidence that one of the only examples of a working first-person film is also a film without a real storyline, focusing on things the character is looking at rather than things that are happening to him.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
