I Married a Monster from Outer Space
I Married a Monster from Outer Space is a 1958 American science fiction film from Paramount Pictures, produced and directed by Gene Fowler Jr. and starring Tom Tryon and Gloria Talbott. Due to its exploitative title, I Married a Monster from Outer Space has long been ignored by critics and film historians, although it received respectable reviews both in contemporary and in later reviews. Danny Peary described it as “an intelligent, atmospheric, subtly made sci-fi thriller,” Tom Milne of Time Out magazine found “good performances, strikingly moody camerawork, a genuinely exciting climax,” and Leonard Maltin called it a “pretty good little rehash of Invasion of the Body Snatchers” with “some nice, creepy moments.” Editor on the original movie was George Tomasini.

Man with a Movie Camera (Russian: Человек с киноаппаратом (Chelovek s kinoapparatom)) is an experimental 1929 silent documentary film, with no story and no actors, by Soviet-Russian director Dziga Vertov, edited by his wife Elizaveta Svilova. Vertov’s feature film, produced by the film studio VUFKU, presents urban life in the Soviet cities of Kiev, Kharkov, Moscow and Odessa. This film is famous for the range of cinematic techniques Vertov invents, deploys or develops, such as double exposure, fast motion, slow motion, freeze frames, jump cuts, split screens, Dutch angles, extreme close-ups, tracking shots, footage played backwards, stop motion animations and self-reflexive visuals. Editors on the original were Dziga Vertov and Elizaveta Svilova.
