Roger Ebert Says This NYC Blizzard Short Film Should Win an Oscar

We've gotten some nifty time-lapse videos of the East Coast blizzard, but in terms of capturing the beauty, hardship and sheer scope of the weather, Jamie Stuart's snow-covered, New-York-shot ode to the Soviet montage is the end-all. Roger Ebert is already calling for the film to receive an Academy Award because of its quality and technical profiency as well as its "role as homage." Indeed, Stuart's short Idiot with a Tripod does an admirable job paying tribute to Dziga Vertov's 1929 silent classic Man With a Movie Camera while still capturing the trials and tribulations that people (and dogs) endured at the hands of the snowstorm.
