Do you know of him ED?
Come on WW of course you have - Battleship Potemkin at the very least.....
Means nothing to me KL...
Oh dear. Film critics would excoriate you!!!
Mind you, it is a bit before your time.....
Is it good KL?
One to put on your list of ten best movies.
You can get them all on DVD - Potemkin,Oktober and Ivan the Terrible - at the film shop in the NFT on the South Bank.
Is Potemkin the best, Angus?
It's the one that, shall we say, made his name. It's a bit propagandist ( lots of heroic sailors and villainous officers) but for it's time it was amazing
In my opinion Eisenstein's best movie is Aleksander Nevsky with it's truly amazing musical score by Prokoviev.
Hello Mr ED - glad to hear you're still going strong! Thank you for your recommendation. I'll try to get hold of it.
Glad tha we old fogies have been able to help you, Dear Whisperer.At least I presume that those to whom Eisenstein's name resonated are Old Fogies. At least I am and glad of it.
