I also preferred this to Potemkin - it just seemed more raw and less staged than some of the set pieces in Potemkin. Some of the visual effects and metaphors used were fantastic and surprised me even as a viewer in 2013 expecting this film to be just a historical relic.
Highly expressive soviet propaganda film with some stunning visuals. First half is especially impressive while the last half drags on a bit.
not as good as Battleship potemkin.....but good no doubt.
