Nanook of the North

Famous as the first documentary but is far from being the least or ar at all amateurish or clumsy. Excellent photography and compelling portraiture. Nanook and family are utterly deft and free. Title cards are patronising but not unseemly so. 1998 score does not age a tenth as well as the footage.
