Ralph Melcher's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

The best and most accessible of the Dziga Vertov films. By structuring the narrative around an actual event (the Chicago 8 trial) and addressing the polemics directly and with a bit of humor Godard and associates create a Brechtian masterpiece that goes beyond the analysis of events in 1968 to address the perennial questions that we still face today. A resounding success in creating revolutionary cinema.
