    Excellent movie. Great cinematography. Great use of lighting and shadows. And all around great framing with excellent acting. Enjoyed part I and II. 4 years 12 months ago

    Incredibly disappointing. The film is a staid historical picture and lacks the creative montage techniques that made Eisenstein's previous films so exhilarating. 7 years 9 months ago

    "Amos Vogel's Film as a Subversive Art"

    Yes, this pro-dictatorship movie made under Stalinist dictatorship is like so totally subversive.

    ... I see Triumph of the Will is on the list too. Mr. Vogel's list should be retitled Films as a Filmish Art
