– Lenin, 1905.

A dramatized account of a great Russian naval mutiny and a resulting street demonstration which brought on a police massacre.

After the success of Strike (1924), Sergei Eisenstein was commissioned by the Soviet government to make a film commemorating the uprising of 1905. Eisenstein's scenario, boiled down from what was to have been a multipart epic of the occasion, focussed on the crew of the battleship Potemkin. Fed up with the extreme cruelties of their officers and their maggot-ridden meat rations, the ... read more

To be honest, it has been a while since I have this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. By now, I have seen more than 5500 movies and, following this mad obsession about movies, I have seen many very old classics and I have noticed that it is very often hit-and-miss with such timeless  features.

The movie revolves around an uprising on board the Battleship Potemkin (Bronenosets Potyomkin) in 1905. Conditions on the ship are unbearable, which in turn incites revolutionary fervor among the sailors, most notably within the character of Vakulinchik.

Overrated films (20 movies items)

"I'm a huge fan of emotion being created solely from the camera, but when you expect an audience to be moved by a completely void plot with no significant characters just because it has a visually impressive massacre scene (and really it's not all that impressive; I don't find the montage technique to be as emotive as, say, Dreyer's use of close-ups), you end up with a truly below average film. The rest of the film is even worse, and at its core it's not more impressive or any less offensive than"

Movie Reviews (51-100) (50 movies items)

" Epic Russian silent movie that tell about a pivotal event during the Russian revolution of 1905. The film is full of memorable imagery but the massacre at the massive steps in Odessa is a brutal and excellent edited scene that leave a lasting impact and it is no wonder that the scene with the baby cart has been reused in numerous more modern films since. Film's patriotic "brothers in arms" communist message is dated and fun for historic value only."

""The cinema's first modernist... was the Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein. As his most famous work, Battleship Potemkin, from 1925, shows, his analytical, quasi-scientific methods bore the mark of both aesthetic and political upheavals." - Richard Brody"

A classic

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. By now, I have seen more than 5500 movies and, following this mad obsession about movies, I have seen many very old classics and I have noticed that it is very often hit-and-miss with such timeless  features. Indeed, with some of them, I could see right away why they have been heralded through all the years but, for some others, it seems more that they were groundbreaking when they were released but they seem to be rather dated nowadays. Well, in this case, with this movie, it thought it was pretty good and, from a technical point of view, Eisenstein was quite a genius who came up with some movie technics that were never used before but, still, was it really such a fascinating story?” read more
